Something WICKED Your Way Comes (October 30 to December 21)

Located in the heart of the theatre district, Block Thirty Seven has partnered with Broadway In Chicago to bring a dynamic WICKED experience to Chicago. Every day from October 30 to December 21, guests are invited to enter a drawing to win complimentary orchestra seats to the award-winning musical in honor of its 10th Anniversary. Guests can pick up entry forms throughout business hours from the Guest Services/Hot Tix desk on Level One, up until two hours prior to the performance. Entry forms will be placed into the WICKED hat; limit one entry per person. Names will be drawn two hours before a performance for 20 orchestra seats at $25 each (cash only purchases). Guests must be in attendance for the drawing to redeem the offer and are limited to a purchase of two tickets at this price per person. After this drawing, an additional name will be selected for a pair of complimentary tickets to that night’s performance courtesy of Block Thirty Seven. Participants must have a valid photo ID when submitting their entry form and, if chosen, when purchasing tickets. WICKED will play the Oriental Theatre (24 West Randolph) for a limited eight-week engagement through December 21. Those interested in purchasing additional tickets can visit Block Thirty Seven’s Hot Tix desk every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. To learn more about WICKED, visit
