Hamilton Broadway Tickets

Apart from getting discounted tickets online, you can also get Broadway tickets for cheap via TKTS booths or Digital Lottery. You can also try your luck with RUSH or Standing Room Only (SRO) tickets, which are also sold at reduced rates!

Hamilton on TKTS

TKTS NYC Discount Booths offer a variety of Broadway and Off Broadway tickets at 20% to 50% off regular prices. Tickets can only be purchased in person - on the day of the performance for evening shows, or the day prior for matinee performances. Seats are assigned at the discretion of the TKTS booth attendant and may be partial view.

TKTS obtains its inventory directly from theaters, based upon how a particular show’s tickets are selling at full-price. Since “Hamilton” is currently one of the most popular musicals on Broadway, there is little to no chance that these tickets will ever be available at any of the four TKTS booths.

To help you plan for future shows, you can view this in-depth guide to the four TKTS booths.

Hamilton Lottery Tickets

For those willing to try their luck, entering a lottery can be a great way to score discount Broadway tickets. A handful of theaters host live, same-day ticket drawings a couple hours before performance time. These require your presence and a bit of patience; but, to many, the reward is well worth it.

Nowadays, quite a few digital lotteries are also available. You can simply enter the draw via your smartphone, making it much more convenient to participate. Currently, there is one digital “Hamilton” lottery that takes place daily.

How: Online form
When: For matinée performances, entry is between 8 AM and 10 AM. For evening shows, between 11 AM and 1 PM. On days with only an evening performance scheduled, entry is between 8 AM and 1 PM. Winners will be notified via email shortly after the lottery closes with a link to purchase the tickets.

RUSH tickets are same-day tickets, usually sold at a highly discounted price. Broadway general RUSH tickets can be purchased by anyone, while student RUSH tickets are restricted for students only. All RUSH tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. They are sold in limited quantities, usually only for performances that do not sell out on their own at regular price. RUSH tickets are subject to any other constraints determined by the provider.
