With seats currently priced as much $539 per ticket, the producers of Hamilton are pulling a very democratic move. On May 16, producer Jeffrey Seller and Broadway in Austin announced they are rolling out a digital lottery during the Austin run, offering $10 tickets to 40 people for each performance.
To take part in the lottery, users must first download the Hamilton app and register. Each lottery opens at 10 am two days before the show, and closes 23 hours later. For example, the first lottery will open on May 26 at 10 am for the first show on May 28. That day's lottery then closes at 9 am on May 27.
We promise it's not as confusing as it seems.
Winners will be randomly selected and then notified via text message at 10 am the day before the show. (Non-winners will also be notified.)
Each lucky winner will be allowed to purchase up to two tickets for the next day's performance, and they must be secured via credit card by 4 pm that same day. Tickets not claimed with a card will be forfeited.
Hamilton, the Broadway phenomenon and winner of 11 Tony Awards, is marching into Bass Concert Hall May 28 through June 16, and serves as the capstone for the 2018-19 Broadway in Austin season. For more information or additional tickets, head to Texas Performing Arts.
