    A two day lead time is incredible! For Wicked and Book of Mormon one had to be in person a couple of hours before the show started to win. So, the digital process is greatly appreciated.

  20. Melly Jones | Feb 24, 2018
    Very exciting, fun concept after waiting hours on line and redialing the box office for seven hours. Twas such a disappointment to read, later in the day, that all tickets were spoken for, SAD day ;-( I've never considered myself lucky, not a gambler either, but will think positive all the way to the last day I'm available for the show. Thanks for the opportunity!
  21. Wende Seever | Feb 24, 2018

    we are old we may not be around for return at a later date

  38. Elizabeth | Feb 18, 2018
    Thank you for the explanation.  
  39. Jill | Feb 18, 2018
    It's too bad there isn't more lead time on the digital lottery. For those of us who don't live in the Denver area, two days is not enough to arrange for lodging and count on I-70 to be open and passable. I realize Hamilton is a huge hit and demand is high. Perhaps in the future a more fair arrangement for rural Coloradans on the Western Slope can be made.
  40. Nancy wearner | Feb 17, 2018
    Would love to see this performance.
