If you want to be in the room where it happens, it's going to cost you some serious money.

Tickets for the July 9 showing of "Hamilton" are selling online for almost $10,000 following a report by The Hollywood Reporter that Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of the hit Broadway musical, is poised to exit the show that evening.

The cheapest seats on resale on Ticketmaster will set a fan back $1,485 for a view from the rear mezzanine. A seat in the lower orchestra costs more than $9,998 per ticket.


"Hamilton" tickets have long been a hot commodity for online ticket resellers, especially because shows sell out months in advance. Tickets often appear on resale sites for more than $1,000.

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. Last week alone, the show grossed more than $1.9 million, according to BroadwayWorld.com.

A spokesman for Miranda told CNBC that, "There is nothing to confirm at this time," in regard to Miranda's final show.

Of course, it wouldn't be a huge surprise if Miranda left 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.

Fans who are unable or unwilling to dish out $10,000 on a ticket for Miranda's purported last show can try their luck with the "Hamilton" daily lottery.
