Lin-Manuel Miranda Last Hamilton Shows Rise in Price

Hamilton Tickets

Lin-Manuel Miranda is the white-hot star and creator of the Broadway smash hit, Hamilton. But after a year of performing the modern-day twist on history, Miranda will soon be handing the breathtakingly successful role off to someone else.

The musical, which features hip hop and rap and tells the story of one of the American founding fathers, Alexander Hamilton, has been credited with “making Broadway cool again.” Hamilton is up for a record-setting 16 Tony nominations on Sunday, with Miranda nominated for four awards — Best Musical, Best Actor in a Musical, Best Book and Best Score.

“His personal mandate seems to be to make art accessible to all,” writes E! News of Miranda. “He wasn’t raised among the theater elite that often caters Broadway plays to their fellow fancies, and it really shows. The guy was a master before he created Hamilton, but he’s stepped it all up since the show made it big. Miranda is charismatic, funny and rule-breaking, which makes him the perfect subject for viral fame.”

Miranda’s show has been seen by President Barack Obama and his family, and last year Miranda made history by freestyling with Obama at the White House – perhaps making Obama the first president ever to “drop the mic.” Miranda, who is of Puerto Rican heritage, has also used his A-list fame for good, appearing on comedian John Oliver’s HBO show, Last Week Tonight, to urge U.S. lawmakers to help the island territory out of its financial straits.

Sadly, Miranda’s run on Hamilton is coming to an end this summer. His last performance will be July 9, and after that he’ll be pursuing other projects.

Razorgator has Hamilton tickets to his final shows. It’s common knowledge that getting Hamilton tickets is a near-impossible feat, but if you are willing to pay the price, it will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience to see Miranda wind down his run in the mega-hit’s title role.

For most of the Hamilton shows at the Richard Rodgers Theatre, only orchestra-level seating remains available, and the price range is over $1,000 per seat. There is orchestra and mezzanine seating available on July 9, Miranda’s final performance, and tickets range from $2,323 to $9,958. For this coming weekend, tickets for the Saturday night show run from $1,493 to $6,473. A week before Miranda’s departure, tickets run from $1,395 to $5,751.

If seeing the show starring Miranda isn’t in the cards for you, he has mulled the idea of making a Hamilton movie, telling Fast Company, “I am absolutely interested in as many people seeing this as possible. But not before people have had the opportunity to see it live.”

If you do get the chance to see it live with Miranda leading the cast, you’ll join the show’s huge celebrity fan base, which includes the Obama family, Dick Cheney (Obama apparently jokes that Hamiliton is the only thing he and Cheney agree on), Oprah Winfrey, Jay-Z and Beyonce, Kanye West, Julie Andrews, Mark Anthony and “Weird Al” Yankovic.

A trick to its success, according to E! News, is its diverse and inclusive approach.

“Audiences have grown sick (make that incredibly sick) of movies and TV shows that were created by and for old white men, for lack of a better descriptor,” according to the entertainment website. “Hamilton talks about (gasp!) immigrant life and features (gasp!) a diverse cast that (gasp!) looks like the people of New York City. Who would have thought that being inclusive would boost Broadway?”

This rings true, and maybe Miranda has done more for entertainment than simply creating a blockbuster Broadway hit. Perhaps the wider industry will take notice and bring about changes needed to make movies, shows, musicals and plays that represent a melting pot country full of diverse genius and and a rainbow of talent.
