‘Hamilton’ Ticket Lottery Doubles Number Of $10 Seats (As Promised)

Delivering on a vow made last June, Hamilton producer Jeffrey Seller confirmed Sunday that the Broadway production will double the number of $10 seats available via lottery for each performance.

Beginning Tuesday, 46 seats per performance at the Richard Rodgers Theatre will be available on the day-of, through the musical’s digital lottery here.

“With #EduHam and #Ham4Ham, we now sell 39,136 seats each year in NYC for $10; we will also sell 38,720 seats this year in Chicago for $10,” Seller said. “I’m happy to report that Hamilton is, indeed, for everyone.” The New York figure accounts for approximately 7% of available seats.

In June, Seller said that the top price for tickets to Hamilton would also double, to a record $849 for some 200 premium seats per performance, or about 15% of available seats. The hit musical about America’s “foundling Founding Father” has been posting ticket sales topping $2 million per week at the 1,321-seat theater, surpassing shows including Wicked and The Lion King that are also hits, running in larger venues.
