AUSTIN (KXAN) — If you consider yourself lucky and want to see “Hamilton” during its stop in Austin for a cheaper price, the show has announced a digital lottery for all Austin dates.
The rap musical, by Lin-Manuel Miranda, about the birth of the United States has been a hit across the country and the show coming to Austin created a hefty demand for tickets, including people who lined up at the box office and in a virtual waiting room online the day tickets were released.
Limited full-price tickets are still available through texasperformingarts.org, but the “Hamilton” producers are offering 40 tickets for $10 each through its digital lottery.
The lottery opens at 10 a.m. two days prior to each show. Winners and non-winners will be notified the day before each show date at 10 a.m. Winners can purchase two tickets that can be picked up at will-call two hours prior to the performance.
“Hamilton’s” stop in Austin runs from May 28-June 16 at the Bass Concert Hall.
