The producers of “Hamilton” are sharply increasing the cost of the best seats in the house, shattering Broadway’s top ticket price, reports NYT.
The best seats will now cost $849 a piece.
The show is sold out through next January, but the producers have already begun selling tickets for the following four months to some American Express cardholders.
An $849 theater ticket is a record for the price being charged directly by a Broadway show.
According to NYT, in the new block of tickets, about 200 seats at every “Hamilton” performance — mostly in the center orchestra — will be sold for $849. The rest of the house — everything but the lottery tickets, or about 1,075 seats per show — will be sold for between $179 and $199 (currently, the regular seats are priced from $139 to $177).
Tom really needs to write an "Anti-Hamilton" play.
