HOW TO ENTER: During the Sweepstakes Period, to enter the Sweepstakes:
1. Complete a Survey. Sponsor will send a customer satisfaction survey via email to the primary email address of each account holder who purchases a ticket to one of the following Sponsor Broadway productions regarding the production:

The surveys shall be completed on an anonymous basis. Once the survey has been completed, the survey respondent will be directed to a separate entry form to complete their name, email address, phone number, and name of show for which they just completed the survey to enter the Sweepstakes. Drawings for each Prize shall take place within one (1) week of the end of the applicable Survey Period. There will be a total of five (5) Drawings.

Limit one (1) Entry per Entrant, per Drawing. Email and survey entries are discarded after each Drawing has been completed. To enter additional Drawings, a survey or email entry must be submitted for each subsequent Drawing. All Entries will be given equal weight when selecting a winner. No purchase is necessary to enter, and a purchase will not increase your odds of winning. Any additional entries beyond the one (1) allowed per Entrant per Drawing will be discarded. Entries that do not meet the requirements set forth in these Official Rules will be disqualified and ineligible to win. Mechanically reproduced or automated email entries are not eligible.

SELECTION OF POTENTIAL WINNER: The winner(s) of each Drawing will be selected in a random drawing from among all eligible Entries received during the applicable Drawing Period. The random drawing will be held within 24 hours of the conclusion of each Drawing Period by Sponsor or its designated representatives, whose decisions are final. Odds of winning will vary depending on the number of eligible Entries received.

All Entries are subject to verification of eligibility by the Sponsor. All decisions regarding Prize awards will be made by Sponsor and are final and binding. In the event of noncompliance with these Official Rules, or if the prize is unclaimed or returned as undeliverable, the prize will be forfeited and may be awarded to an alternate winner drawn from remaining eligible entries. Sponsor shall not be responsible for lost, late, misdirected, damaged, illegible, incomplete, garbled, or incorrect entries. Entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned. Participation constitutes acceptance of these Official Rules in their entirety. Entrant warrants that he/she is eligible to participate in the Sweepstakes and agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Sponsor from any loss, damage, or expense, including, but not limited to, personal injury, death, or damage to or loss of property, arising out of or in connection with participation in this Sweepstakes or the acceptance, use, or misuse of any prize.

WINNERS’ OBLIGATIONS (DELIVERY & DOCUMENTATION): Before being declared a “Winner,” the randomly selected Entrant(s) will be contacted by email and notified that he/she is eligible to win.

The potential prize winners may be required to sign and return an affidavit of eligibility and release of liability, and a Publicity Release (collectively “the Prize Claim Documents”). By accepting the prize, the Winner represents that he/she has complied with these Official Rules.

An Entrant may decline to be a Winner by notifying Sponsor within one (1) business day following notification, in which case the declining Entrant forgoes any prize or other features associated with winning the Sweepstakes.
