Previously on sale through Oct. 30, 2016, tickets are now on sale through Jan. 22, 2017, for American Express cardholders only, via phone at  (877) 250-2929 and online at Ticketmaster.com or at the box office of the Richard Rodgers Theatre, 226 W. 46th Street in New York. Tickets for the new block will go on sale to the general public on Feb. 2.

Single tickets range in price from $139 to $179.

But in putting the new tickets on sale, producer Jeffrey Sellers posted the following statement on the Hamilton website, warning people against buying from scalpers, because, as previously reported by Playbill.com, those tickets have often proven to be wildly inflated in price or counterfeits.

Here is an excerpt from Seller's statement:

"When Stephen Colbert hosted the Kennedy Center Honors a few weeks ago he asked in his opening monologue, 'Can anyone get me tickets to Hamilton?' Here's the deal. I know you want to see Hamilton soon. We have a new block of tickets on sale today for American Express cardholders to the general public on 2/2. I know it's tempting to get tickets any way you can in order to see it soon. But that's risky! There are many people and sites that are selling wildly overpriced, and in some cases, fraudulent tickets. HamiltonBroadway.com is the safest way to get real tickets at regular prices. You can also visit our box office. Yes, you will have to 'wait for it.' But I promise. The wait will be worth it."
