After a years-long wait and a midsummer mad dash for tickets, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway musical masterpiece “Hamilton” finally debuts at Blumenthal Performing Arts’ Belk Theater this week — and there’s still a way to score good cheap seats.
Not for Wednesday’s opening-night performance, or for either of Thursday’s shows, but you can enter a digital lottery for any performance between Friday and finale night on Nov. 4.
Before each show, 40 $10 tickets will be put up for grabs. Hopeful fans can enter the lottery for a specific performance anytime between 11 a.m. two days prior to the date and 9 a.m. the day before, using the official app for “Hamilton” (available for all iOS and Android devices); the Google Play Store; or at http://hamiltonmusical.com/lottery.
Win or lose, notifications will be sent to entrants at approximately 11 a.m. the day prior to the performance. Winners can choose to purchase one or two tickets at the $10 price.
