And the Pulitzer Prize Goes to Hamilton on Broadway

And just when most people thought that Hamilton tickets are too expensive, it has just been announced that Hamilton has won a Pulitzer Prize for drama.  Now in its centennial year, this special award, although anticipated for a while now, has been given to the show's creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda.

This award is sure to give even greater attention to the show and the public's demand for Hamilton tickets.  When you further plan on Hamilton on Broadway receiving many Tony Award nominations when they're announced on May 3, 2016, then also consider it may very well win most of the awards when they are announced live on the CBS Tony Award telecast on June 12, 2016, one can only wonder if Hamilton ticket prices will go up even more than they are now.  Right now, the local ticket experts at Applause-Tickets are seeing some price reductions for weeknight performances but my guesstimate is that Hamilton tickets might see price increases by 10-25%  during the near term.

So if one plans on purchasing Hamilton tickets in the next week or two, it is possible to take advantage of somewhat reasonable prices.  There should be a further surge in demand for Hamilton tickets on May 4, 2016, the day after the Tony Award nominations are announced and if the show wins as many Tony Awards as is being rumored, then it is very possible that on June 4, 2016 that Hamilton tickets might very well go further up in price.

In all my 39 years in the ticket business, I personally have seen lots of hit shows garner intense demand but none that are commanding the kind of attention that Hamilton has done to date.  I'm not promoting that people should spend so much money for a Hamilton ticket.  Actually my personal feeling is that ticket buyers should really consider seeing other Broadway Shows now and wait till prices come down for Hamilton tickets.  Eventually they will.  Whatever goes up, comes down right?

Why not consider going to see 4 or possibly 5 Broadway shows instead of paying for 1 Hamilton ticket?  The team at Applause-Tickets is open 24/7 to help you should you need guidance in purchasing Hamilton tickets.  We look forward to speaking with you soon.

I hope you enjoyed this blog post.
