AUSTIN (KXAN) — The rap musical about the birth of the United States is coming to Austin, and there is a limited chance for people to buy tickets to the show.
“Hamilton,” follows the life of title character and first Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton and will show at the Texas Performing Arts Center’s Bass Concert Hall from May 28 to June 16.
People who don’t already have tickets through the season pass can buy individual tickets starting at 10 a.m. Friday, April 12. People can buy these online, but a limited number will be available through the Box Office. The maximum ticket price is about $535.00 and there is a limit of four per household.
People who log on at 9 a.m. will be put in a virtual waiting room until the tickets go on sale, at which point they’ll be assigned a random place in line. Texas Performing Arts recommends people set up an online account ahead of time.
Because of a large amount of interest, Texas Performing Arts is warning people to be alert for potential scams, including inflated ticket prices.
“Any other website selling tickets to HAMILTON will be a broker or reseller and will charge you more than regular ticket prices,” TPA officials wrote in a release. “We cannot guarantee that tickets purchased through a ticket broker or reseller are valid, and therefore the Texas Performing Arts Ticket Office cannot assist guests who purchase through brokers if there are any problems with tickets.”
