With those savings, think of all the theater beers you could buy!

Hamilton, the Broadway show that scalped tickets in New York City for $2000 a pop is now touring in Seattle, and they've provided a daily lottery score for $10 tickets!

I don't know how people can afford to pay the crazy ticket prices for Hamilton. We saw it in San Francisco last spring and it set us back something like $175 a ticket. It felt like so much money that I walked away from the show thinking it should have at least come with a free cocktail or something. All of the hype for this show holds up even as a dude who doesn't gravitate toward musicals - the last time I had been to SF was to see a doom metal band called Neurosis... The multicultural cast of rapping figures from history tells an important tale of our identity with the irony of many black actors portraying characters that owned their ancestors as slaves.

There are a few of us out there that had the end of Hamilton spoiler'd before we even got to the theater THE WORST

Ok, jokes aside, a quick glance at the secondary ticket market reveals that seats to this thing are gonna set you back a couple hundred bucks, but here's your chance to get 'em for ten dollars! My friends at Broadway at the Paramount sent over the official method for the lottery:

  • Use the official app for HAMILTON, now available for all iOS and Android devices in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store (http://hamiltonmusical.com/app).
  • You can also visit http://hamiltonmusical.com/lottery to register.
  • The lottery will open at 11:00 AM PT two days prior to the performance date and will close for entry at 9:00 AM PT the day prior to the performance.
  • Winner and non-winner notifications will be sent at approximately 11:00 AM PT the day prior to the performance via email and SMS (if mobile number is provided).
  • Only one entry per person. Repeat entries and disposable email addresses will be discarded.
  • Tickets must be purchased online with a credit card by 4:00 PM PT the day prior to the performance using the purchase link and code in a customized notification email. Tickets not claimed by 4:00 PM PT the day prior to the performance are forfeited.
  • Lottery tickets may be picked up at will call beginning 2 hours prior to the performance with a valid photo ID. Lottery tickets void if resold.

Even if this isn't your thing, it could be a sweet gesture to put in for 'em for someone you think would love it. Let your pal, girlfriend, alligator get that selfie in front of the poster and do a bad job capturing the dimly lit Paramount theater from their seats, you'll be a hero!
