'Hamilton' tickets on sale information - here's what you need to know about the Fox Theatre show


BY MELISSA RUGGIERI/AJC Music Scene

Here’s “The Story of Tonight”: Single tickets to the “Hamilton” run at the Fox Theatre will go on sale at 10 a.m. April 8.

The anticipated — no, make that the fanatically awaited — arrival of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Alexander Hamilton musical in Atlanta will take place May 22 and play the Fox through June 10.

Given the intense interest in a show that has become a cultural phenomenon — Broadway in Atlanta vice president Russ Belin said the excitement around “Hamilton” is “really nothing like I have seen in live entertainment” — specific parameters are attached to ticket buying.

Tickets for the Tony-lauded production range from $80-$330 with a select number of $550 premium seats available for all performances. There is a maximum of four tickets per account for the duration of “Hamilton” at the Fox. A lottery for 40 $10 orchestra seats will be held for each performance (those details will come closer to the show).

As previously reported , the only way to ensure a valid ticket is to purchase through foxtheatre.org.

Notes Belin, “Any tickets acquired through third-party ticket sellers are generally sold above market rate and cannot be guaranteed authentic.”

He also suggests visiting broadwayinatlanta.com/FAQ and spending time on the Fox website in advance of the on-sale to set up an account and become familiar with the ticket buying process. Also, be flexible. Your first choice of tickets might not be available, but maybe you’ll luck out by your fourth selection.

The Fox Theatre box office will sell tickets, but fans are encouraged to purchase online. Those who do choose to buy in-person on April 8 won’t be allowed to line up on Fox Theatre property until the arcade opens at 7 a.m.

While the full cast for the Atlanta stop on this national tour hasn’t been announced, four names on the call sheet will consider the Fox shows a hometown visit.

Chris Lee, who was born in Augusta and raised in Atlanta, handles the double-duty roles of the Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson.

As well, three alums of Pebblebrook High School — Hope Endrenyi, Jeffery Duffy and Jennifer Geller — are part of the “Hamilton” ensemble (Duffy and Geller also attended the Cobb County Center for Excellence in the Performing Arts).

Casting for the tour, said Belin, will “reflect the same talent, attention to detail and high quality as the Broadway and Chicago productions.”

Meanwhile, “Hamilton” fans can indulge in the fourth release of the Miranda-steered “Hamildrops,” a series of “Hamilton”-related recordings.

Miranda and “Dear Evan Hansen” star Ben Platt teamed for “Found/Tonight,” a mashup of “Hamilton”’s “The Story of Tonight” and “Dear Evan Hansen”’s “You Will Be Found.” The collaboration was inspired by the students in Parkland, Fla., and part of the proceeds from the song will benefit the March for Our Lives initiative.
