At long last details of how to get tickets to the London production of Hamilton have been revealed.
The show will open at the Victoria Palace Theatre in October 2017.
Fans can sign up to the priority list at the show’s official website and will have first option to buy seats on January 16. General sale begins on January 30.
Producer Cameron Mackintosh told the Daily Mail: “Iam going to keep a proportion of the house for general sale as well. So it’s not like the first few months get filled up with priority ticket holders.”
“People who have signed up for the priority list are first to be guaranteed to get tickets. But I will have seats for every performance for general customers.”
There will also be a daily lottery here 20 seats will be raffled at the theatre for £20.
A second lottery will be held a week in advance — online — so that people living outside of London have an opportunity to bid for another 20 seats at £20. Details of how the weekly lottery is going to work will be unveiled later next year.
More than a third of the Victoria Palace’s 1,500 seats will be priced at £55 or less; and 20 per cent of the house will be £35 or less.
Top, regular-priced seats will be £85; although there will be higher-priced premium seats.
Creator Lin-Manuel Miranda will not be part of the cast when Hamilton opens in London, but Mackintosh says he is expected to perform during 2018 – he just has to work on Mary Poppins Returns first.
