I've never won a lottery, even the ones that require you to show up to see if you won.

I don't know if Hamilton will ever have discount tickets. Sometimes, the discounted price is still unaffordable. I think Lion King is now discounted, but it' still higher than other discounted shows. No show is worth the price of my monthly NY gas and electric bill. There are just too many cheaper entertainment options around. I still want to see Wicked, but even the discount tickets are too expensive for me. Probably cheaper to drive to another city and get road tour tix. I rarely spend more than 60 dollars with all the fees included for Broadway shows and I have seen some "hit" musicals during their first year at that price. I hate the Tkts booth because the seats are usually on the side. Best bet is to get some sort of discount on your own or through an organization and pick up the tickets directly from the box office to avoid ticket master charges. I'm a history buff so I know some of Hamilton's bio, but the tickets would have to be really cheap before I went because the score doesn't appeal to me.

It might be different in NYC... but in Toronto where I am from some times if people can't make an event they post their tickets for sale of kijij and craigslist. I got last minute Matilda tickets that way and they were amazing seats and I paid 1/2 price. It was literally like 3 hours before the show started.

Hamilton won't be in my city for a while.... but I am going to be rushing to grab the cheap seats as soon as they are on sale or may just buy a theater subscription for that year to ensure I actually do get tickets at my desired price point.

I love the lottery idea. They did that for Wicked once when it was in Toronto. I can't even remember if I got tickets that way ... but at least if gives you a shot.

Sure, people sell their unused Hamilton tickets on Stubhub, Craigslist, etc. ... many of them sell for literally thousands of dollars per seat. The resale market for Hamilton tix is RIDICULOUSLY overpriced.

There's no such thing as "cheap seats" when it comes to Ham.

I randomly heard 'The Reynolds Pamphlet' song and thought the female vocalist was incredible.
