Here’s how to enter the $10 day-of ticket lottery for ‘Hamilton’ in Chicago

CHICAGO -- Tickets to the Chicago production of "Hamilton: An American Musical" are the hottest tickets in town and likely to stay that way for a very long time.

On Tuesday morning, producers of the show announced a new way to get tickets. Just like they've been doing in New York, a day-of-show lottery for every performance will take place beginning on the show's opening date, Tuesday, Sept. 27.

From that drawing, 44 tickets will be sold for every performance for $10 each. Locations in the theater will vary per performance -- some seats will be located int he front rows and the boxes!
