RICHMOND, Va. -- Four years after its record-breaking debut on Broadway in New York City, HAMILTON is coming to Richmond. The three-week, 24-show engagement runs November 19 thru December 8, 2019, at the Altria Theater.
The show continues to sell out in New York and every city the touring casts visit. At this point, the only way you can guarantee a ticket to the Richmond performance is to subscribe to the entire 2019-20 Broadway in Richmond season. Subscriber will not only get HAMILTON tickets, but also tickets to THE BAND’S VISIT, FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, CATS, ROALD DAHL’S CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY, THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG, and WICKED. You can find more information here.
"We will announce a date, later, when Hamilton individual tickets will go on sale," Broadway in Richmond spokesperson Cindy Creasy said. "We do know that HAMILTON does do, what they call a lottery, which gives an opportunity for people to purchase tickets for an extraordinary price."
If the HAMILTON ticket lottery in Richmond mirrors that of other cities, hopeful theater goers can enter the lottery through the HAMILTON app.
"A limited number of tickets for each performance will be sold to winners of a random lottery drawing from all entries. A separate lottery will be held for each performance. Winners can only purchase up to two $10 tickets ($20 Total)," the explanation of the process posted to the HAMILTON app read. "Entries for the lottery for each performance will be accepted until 9 a.m. the day before the performance. Winner and non-winner notifications will be sent through the App at approximately 11 a.m. the day before the performance via push notifications if the user has enabled push notifications."
The additional of the Richmond performances to the HAMILTON app should occur the fall. Of course the odds of winning the lottery are not great, so don't rely on this method if you REALLY want to see the show.
