To score the bargain $10 tickets, you have to enter a lottery on the official "Hamilton" app or on the Pantages' website. The app will also soon include an enhanced #EduHam experience - which is a program that provides New York City public school students with the chance to see Hamilton on Broadway and integrate it into the classroom. You can enter to win two tickets for $10 each to see the show now running on a national tour in Los Angeles, or in NY and Chicago at the end of August.
Is this a good deal?
Lotteries open at 11am PST two days before each show, and close at 9am the day before the performance - that means you're not going to have a ton of time to make travel plans if you are in fact a victor.
To try and fix this access issue, Hamilton has long offered lotteries (winners receive two front-row tickets for $10). That means the lottery for a Saturday show will open at 11 a.m. on Thursday, and close at 9 a.m. on Friday. Now, those with the app will be able to enter with just a tap. Duplicate entries and dummy email addresses will be flagged and discarded. Victor and non-winner notifications will be sent at approximately 11 a.m. the day before the performance via email and SMS (if mobile number is provided). One question that people might be asking is, just how much are they going to spend to see "Hamilton"? And with it, we hope the cast can teach us how to say goodbye.
