The Broadway smash hit Hamilton tells the story of Alexander Hamilton who goes onto become one of the world's greatest political leaders, without ever being President.

Hamilton on Broadway Background

Hamilton becomes a statesman whose efforts as George Washington's political adviser led him to success, scandal and ultimately death. The show innovates not only in terms of the content of the story, but also in the form of the storytelling, which is in a musical and modern hip-hop style, using mainly black actors for the white roles.

Following a critically acclaimed run at the prestigious off-Broadway venue The Public Theater, Hamilton comes to Broadway’s Richard Rodgers Theatre in a buzz of excitement. With book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda (In the Heights, Bring It On: The Musical), Hamilton tells the story of America’s founding fathers including Alexander Hamilton, George Washington, Aaron Burr and Thomas Jefferson. However, in an unusual take on the founding story of the United States, Miranda focuses on the gentlemen in terms of their roles as new immigrants, and to highlight this, black and Latino actors are unconventionally cast in the roles. This makes, Hamilton is one of the most exciting new musicals to arrive on Broadway in recent years.

The show was developed at the Public Theater, a NYC theatre incubator of sorts, which prides itself on thorough artistic development and true devotion to quality. For all of these reasons, Hamilton is an engaging and enlivening theatrical experience that can’t be missed.

Ticket buyers often face difficulty with buying Hamilton tickets because nearly all the tickets for this show are purchased by ticket brokers, who then go on to resell the tickets for a much higher price. For Lin Manuel-Miranda's last appearance in the lead role at his own Broadway show (on Saturday July 9th, 2016) the best seats in the house had a face value of $949 and were then resold by a ticket broker for a cold $20,000 each, five hours before curtain time. Now that Manuel-Miranda is long gone, normal ticket broker markups for Hamilton tickets have resumed and they are now generally about 100% of the original face value of the ticket, so you can normally expect to pay a ticket broker around $450 for an orchestra ticket that cost them just $235. Ticket broker prices for mezzanine tickets can vary wildly from $199 to $500, but only cost the ticket broker less than $200, so the value proposition for the mezzanine is all over the place. Many Hamilton tickets have been bought and sold by ticket brokers multiple times and the whole ticket market has become a speculative mess, not unlike the great Tulip bubble of 1593.

Buying Face Value Hamilton Tickets

The Richard Rodgers Theatre sells the standard, face value Hamilton tickets six months ahead of the performance date and on that ticket sale day (for performances 6 months in the future) the line at the ticket box office at the Richard Rodgers theatre is full of ticket brokers and all of their employees, as there is a limit of eight tickets per sale, per person, per day. Regular ticket buyers might get lucky being at the right place at the right time, but the ticket brokers can be quite aggressive, so it is hard for the common man to get Hamilton tickets at face value. Hamilton tickets also go on sale on the Ticketmaster website on the same date as the box office, but ticket brokers prefer the box office as they can avoid all the ticket fees, making their profits even higher. There is a reason why they all drive fast cars and drink champagne.

Hamilton Ticket Buying Strategies

The best strategy for regular folk to get Hamilton Tickets at a reasonable price is to check with the box office when the next time ticket sales cycle will be taking place, Half the Hamilton ticket inventory is sold online and the other half is earmarked to be sold in-person only. Customers can wait diligently on the Ticketmaster website to see the inventory pop up as the online ticket sales often go on sale at midnight on Wednesday nights. The in-person Hamilton ticket inventory is sold at the theatre box office and in-person ticket sales often go on sale at 10AM, but the ticket line starts at 5AM or earlier. Other Hamilton ticket options on-the-day of the performance are the ticket lottery, cancellation line or standing room only choices, all of which get quite a lot of tickets at a low price. A last ditch attempt is to make an offer to a ticket broker outside the theatre five minutes before the show starts, for whatever Hamilton tickets he has left. Ticket brokers have actually been seen conducting soapbox style Hamilton ticket auctions 200 feet from the theatre, ten minutes before showtime, which is just plain barmy.

What’s Hamilton Like?

Hamilton is directed by Thomas Kail (In the Heights, Magic/Bird, Lombardi) and choreographed by Andy Blankenbuehler (In the Heights, Annie, Bring It On: The Musical), Hamilton earned the Edgerton Foundation New American Plays Award and was a hit production at the downtown Public Theater. Hamilton focuses on the story of Alexander Hamilton, who was the right-hand man to George Washington, a war hero, and the head of the Treasury during a tough time for the American economy. But besides this, Hamilton was an orphan born out of wedlock, a rebel fighter, and the victim of the nation’s first sex scandal. While referencing the diversity in present day America along with the struggles of contemporary immigrants seeking equality in society, Hamilton is an inspirational story about speaking your mind and fighting for your beliefs.

Is Hamilton Good for Kids?

The show is most appropriate for children over the age of 10. Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.
