Broadway phenomenon (does that word even capture it?) Hamilton finally opened in Los Angeles last night, after months of anticipation. And today, at long last, there was another debut: L.A.’s edition of the famed $10 ticket lottery for seats at the show.
Forty tickets to each performance will be given out to fans who throw their name into a daily drawing. The lottery opens at 11 a.m. two days before a given show and closes at 9 a.m. one day before that show (meaning you can add your name to the list for a Saturday performance on Thursday and you’ll find out on Friday if you’ve been selected). Texts and emails will go out to the lucky winners around 11 a.m. and, if you get picked, you’ll have until 4 p.m. on the day you’re alerted to pay $10 each for pair of tickets. The next night, you’re off to the theater.
To participate, you can click over to Lucky Seats or download the just-released Hamilton app. There is no limit to the number of times you can enter over during the musical’s run, which continues through Dec. 30, 2017.
