You're in luck.

The La Jolla Playhouse has launched a daily ticket lottery for its popular, world premiere show "Escape to Margaritaville", with a score packed with Jimmy Buffett's iconic and beloved music. 

The lottery, hosted by TodayTix, will give San Diegans the opportunity to enter to win a limited number of front row tickets for just $20. 

“We’re seeing unprecedented demand for Escape to Margaritaville, and we wanted to create a fun and highly-accessible way for our patrons to engage with the show,” said Playhouse Managing Director Michael S. Rosenberg. “We’re also proud to launch the first mobile ticket lottery in the San Diego region, giving theatregoers a chance to win a pair of exclusive $20 front-row tickets to this highly-anticipated musical.”

The musical follows a part-time bartender and part-time singer who falls for a beautiful tourist, a woman who makes him question the life he thought he had figured out.

Playwrights Greg Garcia ("My Name Is Earl", "Raising Hope") and Mike O'Malley ("My Name Is Earl", "Justified", "Glee") blend a story in the works for years with new and original Jimmy Buffett hits. Buffett is known for hits like "Margaritaville", "Come Monday", "Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes", "Manana", and more.

"Escape to Margaritaville" director and La Jolla Playhouse Artistic Director Christopher Ashley talks about how the world premiere production ended up in San Diego.

To enter the lottery, download the TodayTix app from the App Store or Google Play Store and select "Escape to Margaritaville lottery" from the Los Angeles city category. 

You can enter the lottery each day at midnight up until that day's winners are notified by email four to six hours before curtain call. 

Winners will have 30 minutes to buy the tickets in the app. Then, they can pick up their physical tickets at the Playhouse Patron Services Office no more than 15 minutes before show time. 

"Escape to Margaritaville" director and La Jolla Playhouse Artistic Director Christopher Ashley explains the cast and creative team's challenge and excitement on making a Jimmy Buffett musical.

The world-premiere musical, already set for a Broadway run in 2018, runs from May 9 to June 25.
