'Mr. Saturday Night' to host digital Broadway lottery

The new musical comedy begins performances March 29.

Billy Crystal

Get your tickets for Saturday night — or any other night! Mr. Saturday Night, the new musical comedy starring Billy Crystal, will host a digital lottery for its Broadway run. Performances begin at the Nederlander Theatre on March 29 ahead of an April 27 opening night.

A limited number of $45 lottery tickets will be available for each performance. The digital lottery will be open for entries from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. the day before each performance. Winners will be notified by email shortly after 4 p.m. the day before the performance and will have one hour to claim and pay for tickets online. Tickets will be sent via email the day of the performance. Entrants may request up to two tickets, but seat locations and the number of tickets awarded at each lottery drawing are subject to availability. Lottery seats may be partial view.

Mr. Saturday Night is based on Crystal's 1992 film of the same name. Crystal reprises his starring role as Buddy Young Jr., a comedian 40 years past the peak of his fame. Years ago, when his career was declining, he pushed away all his loved ones. But now, Buddy is given one more chance to regain his fame and repair his broken relationships, if he can avoid giving into his self-destructive tendencies again. Shoshana Bean, Randy Graff, Chasten Harmon, and David Paymer — who received an Oscar nomination for playing Stan in the film — also star.
