I finally won the lottery! No, it wasn’t a lottery where I won a lot of money. But before Covid devastated New York City and shut down all theaters on Broadway, I did win the lottery for Hamilton tickets. I downloaded the Hamilton app on my phone and entered every day for a month. And then I won! If you are selected for tickets, then you can buy 2 tickets for just $10 each. Normally you would have to buy them many months in advance through the box office, and people are reselling them for hundreds of dollars. I told my girlfriend we were going to a concert and surprised her outside of the theater. It took her a minute to realize where we were, but when she did realize her surprise she loved it!
How to Enter the Lottery for $10 Hamilton Tickets
Step 1: Download the Hamilton app here hamiltonmusical.com/app/
Step 2: Navigate to the header that says “Lottery,” fill out the entry form, and click “Enter Now.” You can enter to win 2 tickets. The lottery opens every Friday at 10am and closes at noon the following Thursday
Step 3: Winners are notified between 12-4 every Thursday for the upcoming week’s performances and only have 2 hours to claim and pay for tickets. You must then show an ID that matches the entry in order to pick them up at the Box Office.
