HOLLYWOOD (CNS) – A ticket with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, in tonight’s drawing of the multi-state Mega Millions lottery was sold at a Sunset Boulevard gasoline station near Los Angeles’ border with West Hollywood and is worth $2,247,129.

Another ticket with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, was sold outside of California and is worth $1 million, the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game, announced. The state it was sold in was not announced.

California law requires major payoffs of lottery games to be paid on a pari-mutuel basis.

There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in tonight’s drawing and the estimated jackpot for Friday’s drawing will grow to $87 million.

The numbers drawn tonight were 3, 42, 46, 56, 71 and the Mega number was 13. The estimated jackpot was $80 million.

The drawing was the ninth since the last time a ticket with all six numbers was sold.

The odds of matching all five numbers and the Mega number is 1 in 258,890,850, according to the Mega Millions website. The overall chance of winning a prize is 1 in 14.71.

The Mega Millions game is played in 44 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. Virgin Islands.

The Tony Awards are tonight! I watch every year, but this year I’m especially excited because I’ve seen most of the nominated shows. In honor of the event, and to keep you busy until it starts, here’s a brand-new theater review!

On Thursday I won the ticket lottery for Sunset Boulevard. If you’re not entering Broadway ticket lotteries you’re missing out on fabulous, cheap seats to the city’s best shows.

Our seats were incredible! We sat in one of the private boxes right by the stage, had a ton of leg room and could see every expression on the actors’ faces. We couldn’t have been in a better location!

My feelings about the musical have two extremes.

The score and lyrics were terrible, with every unmemorable song sounding just like the last. Plus the plot was uninteresting and moved slowly, although the ending did take me by surprise.

So if I were just examining the composition of the musical I would strongly recommend you skip it.

However, and this is a major however, Glenn Close gave the best character performance I have ever seen on Broadway. Ever. Glenn brought so much nuance to the role of Norma Desmond, a forgotten star who lives for the memories of her glory days, that you alternate between pitying Norma to deciding she is crazy to wondering whether she is purposely being manipulative.

It was truly magnificent to watch. The audience agreed, and it was the first time I’d ever seen a standing ovation happen during a performance. It was incredible watching the audience jump to their feet in the middle of the show!

It’s no wonder this role earned Glenn Close a Tony Award for Best Actress!

Sunset Boulevard has a short run and is only showing until June 25th. So you absolutely, positively, have to get your tickets now!

You can find them here or if you’re feeling lucky there’s always the ticket lottery.

Trust me, you don’t want to miss this performance. Despite the poor score, lyrics and plot, Glenn Close makes seeing Sunset Boulevard completely worth it.
