Hamilton, the smash Broadway hit, might be the hottest ticket in town with sold out dates all the way through to November of this year alone. Earlier this morning (Feb. 2), the producers of the play enacted an online lottery where a lucky winner can snag a pair of tickets at $10.
A quick look at the very full performance schedule calendar for the play from creator Lin-Manuel Miranda shows that it’s nearly impossible to get a weekday or weekend evening ticket, as the show is trying to accommodate everyone who buys in. The online lottery was put into place to cut down on the dangerous crowding that can happen during Broadway ticket giveaways, a common practice in the popular theater district in New York writes the New York Daily News.
Starting at 7 a.m., fans who wanted to get the hard to get tickets needed to sign in to register and hope that by the 3 p.m. cut-off time their names would be selected. The tickets are for the 7:00 p.m. showing of Hamilton this Tuesday evening so follow this link and try your hand if this is your sort of thing.
The Hamilton play examines the life of President George Washington’s chief of staff and Founding Father, Alexander Hamilton, all done with a unique Hip-Hop twist.
