‘Hamilton’ Producers Warn Fans Against Scalped & Faked Tickets: New Block Coming on Sale Soon
Lin-Manuel Miranda’s new musical Hamilton is perhaps the best reviewed new show running on Broadway today. However, despite how much you want to see the show, the Richard Rodgers Theater can only hold so many people at once and the cast would literally die of exhaustion trying to fulfill the demands of the public if they ran more shows. Even talk show host Stephen Colbert couldn’t get hand on a measly 400 tickets. In all seriousness the show’s producers are reaching out to fans to not buy scalped and possibly fake tickets, and promising to that are releasing a new block of tickets soon.
The official Hamilton on Broadway website is warning visitors to look for countifie tickets. Producer Jeffrey Seller penned the cautionary note, writing:
“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 for American Express cardholders and 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 or try Broadway.com. Yes, you will have to ‘wait for it. But I promise: The wait will be worth it.”© 2016 The Classical Art, All rights reserved.
