Hamilton’s Lottery Goes Digital

Hamilton’s Lottery Goes Digital

The daily $10 lottery at the Broadway musical Hamilton will move online for the winter starting Tuesday, January 5th. Hamilton producer Jeffrey Seller stated the live lottery and live Ham4Ham show will return in the spring.

The digital lottery, powered by Broadway Direct, will be at www.hamiltonbroadway.com/lottery. The entry period will begin each day at 9:30am for that day’s performance(s) only. There is a limit of one entry per person, and each entrant can request up to two tickets. Entries for matinee performances will be accepted until 11am; the evening performance entry period ends at 4pm. Winners will be notified via email shortly thereafter with a link to purchase the tickets. Winners will have a 60 minute window during which they must claim and pay for their tickets with a credit card online. Tickets not claimed in this manner will be sold to the cancellation line in person at the box office. There will still be 21 front row tickets available to lottery entrants, and they will remain $10 each. Winners must pick up their tickets at the Richard Rodgers Theatre box office with a valid photo ID that matches the name drawn. All sales are final. No refunds or exchanges.

“We love seeing so many fans show up to participate in the Ham4Ham lottery and show.  But we need to figure out how to safely accommodate our fans without blocking traffic on West 46th Street.  We’re taking this winter break to work out some safety measures and improvements that we’ll implement when we return to the live lottery in the spring,” said Seller.

The musical’s producers are undertaking an effort with The Nederlander Organization to give the live lottery an upgrade and provide the most user-friendly, safe environment possible for the many patrons who turn up each day in the hopes of winning a $10 ticket.

The HAM4HAM Show, during which cast members from  Hamilton and/or others from the Broadway community perform for the crowd, will also go on hiatus during this time, and will return in the spring.

Inspired by the book  Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow,  Hamilton features book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler and music direction and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire.

We leave you with the first Ham4Ham show of 2016, featuring Saturday Night Live’s Taran Killam who offers “The 12 Facts of Hamilton Not Covered In The Show.”
