I just got back from spending two weeks in Europe with my 14-year old daughter. We ended our visit in London where we watched Hamilton, the West End production. We sat in the 2nd Row Center Orchestra (Stalls), and paid face value (just over $100 each). I got those tickets over a year ago.

Some of you who may have seen the show, or who have been wanting to see the show might know that tickets to Hamilton are hard to get, and are inflated when sold in the after market. So, how do you score tickets to Hamilton without buying tickets from scalpers or after-market ticketing services? One great way is to buy tickets at face value once they go on sale to the public. That means you need to be in the know when these tickets will go on sale. I did write a few entries on Hamilton a few months ago alerting our followers about the upcoming sale. Click here.

For this latest news, I just got an email from the Chicago production of Hamilton, currently playing at the CIBC Theatre in Chicago. There are seats available between the end of August and September.

If you plan on watching the show in Chicago, and your schedule is flexible, you could check for availability yourself via Ticketmaster.com For instance, I checked Ticketmaster’s website

  • Click here for availability
  • Choose one of the highlighted dates
  • I’ve seen very few availabilities in the $72 range (Balcony level) – not exactly the best seats in the house, but if you’re on a budget, this could be your ticket to watch Hamilton
  • More seats in the $92 range in the Mezzanine

Just remember that this is subject to change. If the show is fully sold out, there are those who sell and mark-up their tickets. But if you’re flexible enough with your dates, you could watch the show and pay face value rather than pay inflated ticket prices.
