If you want to see the short film accompanying David Bowie’s new song, “★,” when it premieres at Nitehawk on Thursday, there’s still one time slot that isn’t sold out. But if you want to see the new play, Lazarus, co-written by Bowie and featuring original songs, it won’t be so easy. The last batch of tickets sold out soon after we gave you the heads up about them (after all, the New York Theatre Workshop has a capacity of around 200), and there are just four tickets on StubHub: two for $600 each, and two for $1,000 each.
But fear not: Tomorrow, Nov. 18, the theater is releasing “a very limited number” of tickets for select performances in November. You can follow @NYTW79 to find out when, exactly, they become available.
The theater also shares these ways to snag tickets last-minute.
Join the cancellation line starting two hours before curtain on the day of the performance. Cancellation tickets are full price and will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis at the NYTW Box Office.
The initial block of CheapTix performances sold out almost immediately. Beginning December 28, we will hold a daily CheapTix lottery at New York Theatre Workshop (79 East 4th Street). Beginning two and a half hours prior to curtain, theatregoers can enter the lottery and at two hours prior to curtain, the lottery will close and names will be drawn for a limited number of $25 tickets. Winners receive up to two tickets, payable in cash only, and a photo-ID will be required. Each participant may enter their name one time per performance. Tickets are non-transferable, and an individual may only win once during the run of the lottery.
Good luck, earthlings!
