The Who's Tommy will offer lottery tickets for its Broadway run at the Nederlander Theatre, which begins on March 8 ahead of a March 28 opening.

The lottery will be open for entries from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. the day before each performance. Winners will be drawn at 3 p.m. and will have one hour to claim and purchase tickets for the next day's show. Entrants can request up to two tickets at $40 each. Lottery seats may be partial view.

Based on The Who's groundbreaking 1969 concept album, The Who's Tommy centers on the title young boy, who is unable to speak, see, or hear due to childhood trauma. He eventually discovers he has a knack for pinball, which makes him into a local celebrity — and offers him a route to healing.

The show, which premiered on Broadway in 1993, is now having its first revival. The show includes all the hit songs from the album, including "Pinball Wizard" and "I'm Free."
