Get Ready to Play the ‘Hamilton’ Lottery

Don’t throw away your daily shot at scoring $10 seats to see the Broadway sensation.

Let’s be honest, you probably didn’t manage to snag Hamilton tickets. The universally lauded historical hip-hop Broadway hit — which actually lives up the the insane hype — comes to the Paramount Theatre for a Feb. 6–March 18 run, but seats sold out instantly when they went on sale last November (and weren’t exactly cheap even at face value). But don’t give up hope, Hamilfans. Rather than spend a month’s rent on secondary market tickets for the show, you can gather up all your lucky charms and play the official Hamilton digital lottery.

For every performance, 40 orchestra tickets will be sold for $10 a piece via the lottery. (Get it? $10? You can see Hamilton for a Hamilton.) To have a chance at the ridiculously underpriced seats, Seattleites just need to register by download the Hamilton app or go to HamiltonMusical.com/lottery. The registration period begins this Sunday. The randomly selected winners (and non-winners) will be notified by 11 a.m. the day prior to a performance. As long as you’re mentally tough enough to deal with the likely daily rejection of not winning, there’s really no reason not to sign up. (Seriously folks, the show is as good as everyone says it is.)
