“Wicked” on the cheap

Passed on tickets to “Wicked” because of the steep price? Or maybe you just waited too long for good seats.

Well, there’s another option. Broadway Across America has announced a day-of-performance lottery for $25 orchestra seats to the blockbuster musical, which runs June 3-21.

You’ll have to show up at the Murat Theatre box office 2 1/2 hours before any show time. Your name will go into a lottery drum with winners picked a half hour later. If your name is drawn (and you have an i.d. to match that name), you can buy two $25 tickets with cash only. No credit cards. No checks. No green stamps.  

And no word yet on how many tickets will be available per show.

So do you already have tickets? If not, would you consider taking advantage of such an offer?
