The multi-Tony Award-winning musical “Hamilton” returns to Pittsburgh’s Benedum Center for a 24-performance run beginning Feb. 22. Single tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Oct. 18 at broadwayseats.org.
A total of nine tickets can be bought per account for the event, which will take place from March 3 to March 13. The price of tickets for all events will vary from $49 to $179, with a limited number of premium seats starting at $299 for select performances. There will also be a lottery for 40 $10 tickets to all performances, which will be selected at random.
Details will be released closer to the time of the engagement.
In accordance with the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, which runs the Benedum Center, tickets for Hamilton Pittsburgh or any other trust event bought on a secondary site cannot be guaranteed by the organization. Tickets that are found to have been sold for more than their face value will be canceled.
There is no waiting list to get tickets.
“It’s tempting to try to get tickets in whatever manner you can get it. Producer Jeffrey Seller said that “there are numerous websites and people who are selling expensive and in some cases fake tickets.” “For the best seats, the best prices and to eliminate the risk of counterfeit tickets, all purchases for the PNC Broadway in Pittsburgh engagement should be made through broadwayseats.org.”
“We are excited that ‘Hamilton’ is returning as part of our come-back season as the lights rise across Cultural District stages after an extra-long break,” says Marc Fleming, vice president of marketing, communications and Broadway programming for Pittsburgh Cultural Trust. “We are confident that Hamilton, together with other spectacular events, will attract hundreds of thousands of visitors who will fill restaurants, increase employment, and enhance the energy of Downtown.”
With music that combines hip-hop, jazz, R&B, and Broadway tunes, the show “Hamilton” tells the story of founding father Alexander Hamilton. The show is described as “the story of America then, told by America now.”
Because of some strong language and non-graphic adult situations, the musical is deemed appropriate for spectators ages 10 and above. There will be no admission for children under the age of three.
It is based on Ron Chernow’s famous biography and has a book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, musical supervision, and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, and a cast and crew that includes Miranda.
It has earned an unprecedented number of Tony Awards and nominations, as well as Grammy and Olivier Awards, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and a special citation for an amazing performance from the Kennedy Center Honors.
