Hamilton is returning to Broadway this month, and so is the popular #HAM4HAM ticket lottery, producer Jeffrey Seller announced this week. A limited number of $10 tickets will be available through the lottery for each performance, a celebrated feature from the record-shattering musical’s original run that began in 2015.
Conducted through a digital app, the lottery will begin each Friday and close the following Thursday for the upcoming week’s performances. A total of 46 tickets will be available through the #HAM4HAM lottery for each performance. The #HAM4HAM name stems from the price ($10) being the same denomination as the bill bearing the face of Alexander Hamilton, the namesake and protagonist of the show.
Beyond the opportunity for a ticket to the red-hot show at a tiny fraction of the price, #HAM4HAM became well known for the impropmtu sidewalk performances that cast members would give in the afternoon outside to the crowds awaiting their shot. Check out the compilation video someone put together of those outside performances:
The digital nature of the renewed lottery won’t feature that energy, but there’s little doubt that the interest will remain high as Hamilton heads back to the stage for the first time since March of 2020. Registration for the first week of return shows lottery is already complete (it closed yesterday), but a new round of shows will open today.
