'Merrily We Roll Along' offers digital lottery on TodayTix, extends Off-Broadway run
The show will now play through January 21.
Here's a reason to be merry! The Off-Broadway revival of Merrily We Roll Along starring Daniel Radcliffe, Jonathan Groff, and Lindsay Mendez will host a digital lottery via TodayTix. The musical will begin performances at New York Theatre Workshop on November 21 and run through January 21, two weeks later than originally announced.
All tickets for Merrily We Roll Along's first two performances, on November 21 and 22, will be sold via the TodayTix lottery. Users can download the TodayTix app and enter between today and noon on September 14. Entrants may request up to two tickets, priced at $25 each.
A limited number of $25 tickets will be available for all other performances. The lottery for these performances will open for entries on the TodayTix app at 12:01 a.m. each performance day and close at noon. Winners will be notified by push notification and email between 3 and 4 hours before the performance, and they will have 30 minutes to claim their tickets in the app.
Merrily We Roll Along is about three lifelong friends — Frank, Charley, and Mary — whose bond gets fractured when one leaves the theatre industry behind to make it big in Hollywood. The story of their friendship is told in reverse chronological order over 20 years. Based on the same-named 1934 play, Merrily is written by Stephen Sondheim and George Furth, the duo behind Company.
Two-time Tony nominee Groff last appeared off Broadway as the original Seymour in the current Little Shop of Horrors revival. Mendez is a Tony winner for her performance in the latest revival of Carousel, and Radcliffe, best known for playing the title character in the Harry Potter films, last performed in New York in The Lifespan of a Fact on Broadway.
