    Can anyone guess what the lottery chances will be for Matilda on Easter Sunday? I can’t really judge from last year since it had just opened at the time. I don’t know if it’ll be busier than usual, or less busy since a lot of people tend to stay home with family for Easter.

    • Katie says:

      Actually most holidays are much busier for Broadway, and I’m sure Easter is no exception. If I were you I’d choose a show that I know I could get tickets for to both avoid crowds and disappointment.
