Following its inaugural Broadway performance on April 14, POTUS: Or, Behind Every Great Dumbass are Seven Women Trying to Keep Him Alive has launched rush and lottery programs for the remainder of its Broadway run. POTUS is playing a limited engagement at the Shubert Theatre through August 14, with an opening night of April 27. 

POTUS will offer rush tickets for $39 in person at the box office each day. The Shubert Theatre box office opens at 10 a.m. each day except Sunday, when it opens at noon. Each person can purchase up to two tickets for that day's performance. Rush tickets and seating locations are subject to availability.

POTUS will also host a digital lottery for $39 tickets. The lottery is open for entries from midnight to 3 p.m. the day before each performance. Winners are drawn at 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. each day, and winners will have 6 hours to purchase up to two tickets for the next day's performance.

Selina Fillinger's farce stars Lilli Cooper, Lea DeLaria, Rachel Dratch, Julianne Hough, Suzy Nakamura, Julie White, and Vanessa Williams as seven women in the inner circle of a problematic president. When he escalates a public relations flub into an international crisis, it's up to the women — as usual — to get him out of trouble and do damage control. Five-time Tony Award winner Susan Stroman directs.
