Front-row seats, priced $10, will be available for all performances of the new Broadway musical Hamilton — about Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, whose face is depicted on the $10 bill — beginning with the first preview July 13.
The lottery begins two-and-half hours prior to each performance when patrons may enter their name at the Richard Rodgers Theatre (226 W. 46th St.) for a chance to buy up to two front row tickets for $10 each. The winner's names will be drawn two hours before show time. Entrants must present photo ID, and the winners must pay with cash at the box office. Hamilton, which will officially open Aug. 6, is inspired by the book "Alexander Hamilton" by Ron Chernow and features book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler and direction by Thomas Kail, who previously collaborated on In the Heights.
Tickets are available for purchase through March 27, 2016, via phone, online or at the box office of the Richard Rodgers Theatre. Single tickets range in price from $57-$167.
The prolific producer, along with frequent collaborator Neil Meron, was behind such musical-driven projects as Smash, NBC’s live musicals, and the Broadway revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
