Finally, the news-hungry theatergoers have been waiting all year to hear.
Tickets to Broadway in Louisville’s tour of “Hamilton” officially will go on sale on Thursday, April 11, at 10 a.m., and you can either get them online or in person at the Kentucky Center’s box office. The show runs June 4-23.
Tickets will range from $65.50 to $175.50, with a select number of $395.50 premium seats available for all performances. Additional fees apply to online purchases, and there is a maximum purchase of four tickets per person.
“It’s tempting to get tickets any way you can,” said Tour Producer Jeffrey Seller in a news release. “There are many sites and people who are selling overpriced, and in some cases, fraudulent tickets. For the best seats, the best prices and to eliminate the risk of counterfeit tickets, all purchases for the Louisville engagement should be made through www.kentuckycenter.org.”
This will be the first time Louisville audiences will get a chance to see the 2015 musical, which is based on the life of Alexander Hamilton and features a soundtrack that incorporates rap, R&B, pop and soul songs.
It was written and created by Lin-Manuel Miranda. In 2016, “Hamilton” received 16 Tony nominations, winning 11, including Best Musical, and also took home the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album that same year. If that wasn’t enough, the musical also won the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for drama.
