Don't bank on getting a cheap ticket to "Hamilton." Prices for the hot hip-hop Broadway musical keep climbing.
The next block of tickets for "Hamilton" will go on sale June 12, coinciding with the 2016 Tony Awards, where the show is nominated for a record 16 awards. "Hamilton" is currently sold out through January 2017, and the new block will cover shows through mid-May 2017.
Box office prices for about 200 premium seats will sell for $849, reports The New York Times, up from $549. Other tickets will run $179 to $199, up from a previous starting price of $139.
Producer Jeffrey Seller told the Times he hopes the new price will keep more money with the show instead of resellers, and that he came to the new number by monitoring the secondary market. "If I'm at $849, I think we may succeed in taking the motivation out of the scalpers to buy those tickets," he said.
Would-be audience members will also have more opportunities to win a $10 lottery ticket in the new block, with 46 seats in the first two rows up for grabs. Currently, entrants have a shot at 21 front-row tickets.
(It's not the only option for cheaper seats. See our guide here.)
Of course, box-office prices pale in comparison to what the show is fetching on the secondary market. Tickets for June are currently averaging $2,394, according to marketplace TiqIQ. The asking price for seats to "Hamilton" creator Lin-Manuel Miranda's last show on July 9 are as high as $10,000.
