Click, boom! The race to get "Hamilton" tickets just kicked into a higher gear.
Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of the hit Broadway musical, is poised to exit the show in July, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Tickets for "Hamilton" are already hard to get, with shows selling out months in advance. Last week alone, the show grossed more than $1.9 million, according to BroadwayWorld.com data.
Since the show opened at the Richard Rogers Theater in August, it has grossed more than $75 million, not including what it made while in rehearsals at New York's Public Theater.
Fans of the show took to social media following the news.
"There is nothing to confirm at this time," a spokesman for Miranda told CNBC.
Of course, it wouldn't be a huge surprise if Miranda departed the show shortly after the Tony Awards. The man is non-stop.
Miranda spent much of the year writing the music for Disney's new animated film "Moana," due out in theaters in November; he has also been cast in the Disney film "Mary Poppins Returns," alongside Emily Blunt. The movie rights to his previous Broadway smash, "In the Heights," were recently optioned by The Weinstein Company, and touring productions of his current show are in the works.
So, if you want to be in the room where it happens (with Miranda in the spotlight), you should race over to StubHub or try your luck with the "Hamilton" daily lottery.
