Producer Jeffrey Seller states, “I am confident that Verified Fan will be a valuable service to our fans. We know how challenging it is to buy tickets and this new Ticketmaster program will make the process a whole lot easier.”
The new block of tickets for Hamilton on Broadway are for performances beginning on March 6, 2018 though August 19, 2018. There are many ticket resellers and secondary markets for tickets. For the best seats and to eliminate the risk of fraud, get tickets in advance through the Richard Rodgers Theatre (226 West 46th Street) or Ticketmaster. Purchasing tickets from any other seller runs a high risk of receiving fraudulent tickets.
Hamilton features a book, music and lyrics by Tony Award-winner Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, and choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler. The production won eleven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Mr. Miranda also received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for his creation of Hamilton.
“Hamilton is the story of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War, and was the new nation’s first Treasury Secretary. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway, Hamilton is the story of America then, told by America now.”
