Single-ticket sales for the highly anticipated Sarasota run of the hit Broadway musical "Hamilton" will go on sale Nov. 16.
Tickets will be available for performances running from March 26 to April 7, 2024, at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall. A maximum number of eight tickets will be sold for each show per account. Tickets can be purchased beginning at 10 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 16 on VanWezel.org.
Prices range from $59 to $159 with a select number of premium seats available starting at $209 for all performances.There will be a lottery for 40 $10 seats for all performances, the Van Wezel said in a statement. The Van Wezel has 1,741 seats.
The Van Wezel's 2023-24 season marks the first time that the touring show of "Hamilton" is coming to Sarasota. The irreverent hip-hop history of Alexander Hamilton, the amorous first treasury secretary of the U.S., has previously appeared three times at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa.
Nevertheless, demand is expected to be high for the Sarasota run of "Hamilton."
"It's tempting to get tickets any way you can," said "Hamilton" producer Jeffrey Seller in a statement. "There are many sites and people who are selling overpriced, and in some cases, fraudulent tickets. For the best seats, the best prices and to eliminate the risk of counterfeit tickets, all purchases for the Sarasota engagement should be made through VanWezel.org."
"Hamilton" tickets have been available to Van Wezel season ticket holders for several months.
Based on Ron Chernow's biography, "Hamilton" won 11 Tony Awards for its Broadway run. The show features book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire.
