Hamilton Sells $6.5 Million Worth of Broadway Tickets in 11 Days

News   Hamilton Sells $6.5 Million Worth of Broadway Tickets in 11 Days
 
Lin-Manuel Miranda's new musical Hamilton has sold a hefty $6.5 million in tickets in the 11 days since the box office opened, according to a report in The New York Times.

The Times quoted lead producer Jeffrey Seller in giving the figure, adding that he has another $4 million worth of orders from groups. Tickets went on sale March 8.

The rap musical about our nation's first Treasury Secretary, which will open at the Richard Rodgers Theatre this summer, helped christen the new extra-large multi-window box office built at the neighboring Marquis Theatre, partly to handle the expected demand and partly because the Rodgers still had a show, If/Then, when tickets went on sale. Hamilton debuted Off-Broadway Feb. 17 at the Newman Theater in the Public Theater complex, where it is continuing its sold-out three-times-extended run through May 3. There will also be a special benefit performance May 4.

The show is currently scheduled to go on hiatus after its May 4 Off-Broadway closing, and begins Broadway previews July 13 aiming for an Aug. 6 opening.
