If you've been up in (broken) arms about being unable to buy tickets to Dear Evan Hansen's run at the Dr. Phillips Center, don't despair: a digital lottery may deliver you $25 tickets to the Broadway hit.

While Hamilton's sold-out visit to Orlando grabbed all the headlines, some Orlando theatergoers have also been grumbling that tickets to Dear Evan Hansen have been extremely hard to come by for those who don't subscribe to a Fairwinds Broadway in Orlando season package. Now, a digital lottery for the the show has been announced, which will offer a limited number of seats to each Orlando performance, starting Tuesday, April 16, and running through Sunday, April 21.

Entries will be accepted at luckyseat.com/dearevanhansen starting 48 hours prior to the first Orlando performance (which means 8 p.m. on Sunday, April 14) and can be submitted until 9 a.m. on the day before the performance. Winners will be notified by email and may buy up to two tickets for $25 each, with the lottery continuing on a rolling basis through the run. You must be 18 years or older, and have a valid, non-expired photo ID that matches the name used to enter to pick up your tickets.
