NEW YORK (AP) — Most theater ticket prices are sky high, but one new offer will get you into a big musical for less than a nickel.

The off-Broadway Atlantic Theater Company and the ticketing app TodayTix said Thursday they will hold a lottery that will give two lucky winners 3-cent tickets to every performance of "The Threepenny Opera."

To enter, theatergoers must download the app, select a performance and hope they are among the lottery winners announced four hours before the performance. The show runs March 12-May 4.

The revival of the Bertolt Brecht-Kurt Weill masterpiece tells the scabrous tale of lowlifes in Victorian England. It will star Tony Award nominee Laura Osnes, Academy Award winner F. Murray Abraham and Emmy Award winner Michael Park.
