“Hamilton” is Coming to Pittsburgh — Here’s How to Get Tickets
While you may not be able to shell out the hundreds (sometimes thousands) of dollars required to see Broadway hit Hamilton in New York City, you’ll soon be able to see the show in the comfort of your own city — for much less, we might add. That’s right: Hamilton is coming to Pittsburgh, and we’re here to show you exactly how to secure a seat for Lin Manuel Miranda’s cheeky, historical hip hop musical.
The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is bringing Hamilton to town from January 1 through January 27 at the Benedum Center. Tickets start at around $150 and go up to $530, and while that’s definitely an investment, you’ll think it’s more of a bargain when you consider that the current ticket prices on Broadway start at around $500.
To get tickets, you can still purchase seats through the Cultural Trust’s website, as there are still a decent amount of tickets left. For a serious bargain, you can try your luck at snagging $10 (yep, you read that right) tickets through the Cultural Trust’s ticket lottery, which releases 40 seats for each performance two days prior to the show. The lottery starts at 11 a.m. on December 30 for tickets to the opening-day show on Tuesday, January 1, and you can continue to register for the lottery every day through the final show on January 27. You’ll need to download the Hamilton app to register for the lottery.
If you have a friend or family member who is a Cultural Trust member, you can also enjoy the perks of their early access tickets. Butter up that Trust supporter with the promise of a dinner downtown before the show and you might just get a ticket out of them — and make a mental note to become a member yourself to enjoy the same perks!
Finally, you can do some bargain hunting on second-party sites like StubHub or Seat Geek. At the time this article was written, tickets on second-party sites started at around $200, so you can definitely still find some deals if you do some searching — and if you’re not too particular about where you sit. Hey, it’s all about the music anyway!
January 1 – 27
