'Hamilton' Is Now More Expensive Than The Super Bowl
Lin-Manuel Miranda is a hot ticket.
The creator and star of the high-demand Broadway musical Hamilton is headed out and the prices are therefore going up...even more. Lin-Manuel Miranda's final date on the big stage is slated for the night of July 9th, and is (obviously) sold out.
For those few who have tickets looking to cash in, the possibilities are steadily rising. According to Market Watch, fans are spending an upwards of $6,000 per ticket.
As of Wednesday, the lowest secondary-market price for the tickets of the historic night stood at $2,319. But the most expensive single ticket sold so far stands at $6,600 for an orchestra seat. The most expensive group purchase has ben $20,800 for four tickets according to Chris Matcovich, Vice President of online ticket aggregator TiqIQ. Mactovich calls it the "most expensive shows in Broadway history," according to his numbers.
The average asking price is currently around $5,000, higher than that of some Super Bowl tickets.
July 9th isn't the last day of the show, though, but Miranda will be replaced by Javier Munoz. If you want to put in your bid for the hot tickets, you can pay $10 in lottery on any performance day for a chance to view it all from the front row. Priceless.
