Forty tickets will be made available for each performance.

Until recently, the only way to get a ticket to see Lin-Manuel Miranda’s blockbuster musical “Hamilton” when it comes to the Ohio Theatre later this month was by purchasing a season pass to the Broadway in Columbus series. Which is likely the reason that all 16,000 sold out for the first time ever.

When tickets for individual performances of the award-winning hip-hop show went on sale Nov. 15, staff members here at the Dispatch Media Group magazines—Columbus Monthly, Alive, Parent and CEO—were huddled around our monitors, credit cards in hand, counting down the seconds until we could click “Buy Tickets” in the race to score seats, at prices ranging from about $105 each to more than $200. (Most of us succeeded, thanks for asking!)

But if you missed your chance the first and second times around, you haven’t been shut out yet. In fact, if you’re lucky and persistent, you might score $10 tickets to the traveling production of Broadway’s most talked-about show, which has won multiple Tony Awards, a Grammy and a Pulitzer Prize for its modern spin on Ron Chernow’s 2004 biography of founding father Alexander Hamilton. Forty tickets for each performance throughout “Hamilton’s” run from Jan. 29 through Feb. 17 will be sold for $10 each to winners of a digital lottery two days prior to each show. The first lottery will be held at 11 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 27, for tickets to the Jan. 29 performance. You can use the official “Hamilton” app or register online at There’s a limit of two tickets per lottery winner.
