A limited number of $40 lottery tickets will be available digitally for each performance. Organized through Telecharge, entries will open at 12 AM the day prior to each performance, and will remain open until 10 AM and 3 PM the day of the performance, contingent on if the performance is a matinee or an evening performance (respectively). Entrants may enter once a day at Rush.Telecharge.com, and should they win, they may purchase up to two tickets.
Additionally, a limited number of $35 rush tickets, two per person, will be made available in person at the box office of the Belasco Theatre the day of each eligible performance. The box office opens at 10 AM Monday through Saturday, and at 12 PM beginning April 30.
The production began performances on Broadway April 7. Directed by Lisa Peterson, Good Night, Oscar will open April 24, with the 20-week limited engagement continuing through August 27.
Wright's play is set in 1958, while Jack Paar is hosting The Tonight Show. He’s booked his favorite guest, Levant. In 90 minutes, Levant will have audiences howling, censors scrambling, and, when it’s all over, America will be just a little less innocent than she was before. The work premiered in 2022 at Chicago's Goodman Theatre with Hayes leading the cast.
Hayes is joined by Marchánt Davis as Alvin Finney, Alex Wyse as Max Weinbaum, Emily Bergl as June Levant, Peter Grosz as Bob Sarnoff, Ben Rappaport as Jack Paar, and John Zdrojeski as George Gershwin. The production's understudies are Sam Bell-Gurwitz, Postell Pringle, Max Roll, Thomas Michael Hammond, and Stephanie Janssen.
Good Night, Oscar features scenic design by Rachel Hauck, costume design by Emilio Sosa, lighting design by Ben Stanton and Carolina Ortiz Herrera, sound design by André Pluess, music supervision by Chris Fenwick, wig, hair, and makeup design by J. Jared Janas, casting by Stephen Kopel, and dramaturgy by Jacqueline E. Lawton.
The project is the second attempt to craft a play around Hayes portraying Levant. Playwright David Adjmi recently alleged that his own Levant play, written for Hayes and the same producing team behind Good Night, Oscar, was stymied by the development of Wright's.
