CHICAGO -- We finally know when tickets will go on sale for the smash hit musical "Hamilton" when it comes to Chicago.
Single tickets will go on-sale at 10 a.m. Tuesday, June 21 for performances Sept. 27 thru March 19, 2017. No tickets will be on sale past that date. The early weeks of the show already are heavily sold to groups and subscribers.
The maximum purchase limit is six tickets per household ranging from $65 - $180. Premium tickets run between $500-$600 during the holidays.
More than 18,000 tickets will be sold for $10 through an online lottery. 20,000 tickets will also be available to Chicago Public Schools and other students for $10.
To buy a ticket, you can visit Broadwayinchicago.com, call the presenter's ticket line at 800-775-2000, or go in person to the PrivateBank Theatre, 18 W. Monroe St. If purchased in person, there will be no handling fees. Windows will open at 10 a.m. Other Broadway in Chicago box offices will not be open for "Hamilton" tickets.
The show is expected to walk away with the bulk of the Tony Awards when they're given out on Sunday night. It's already won a Grammy and Peabody award.
Illinois' Attorney General Lisa Madigan is warning theater-goers to be wary of websites offering tickets to the mega-hit musicals "Hamilton" and "Aladdin" before they go on sale to the general public.
Madigan issued a warning Tuesday about sales of so-called "speculative tickets" from sellers or resellers. Madigan's office says such tickets often come with a steep markup and consumers risk ending up with bad seats or even counterfeit tickets.
The attorney general has sent letters to more than a dozen online ticket sites seeking more information about speculative tickets for the two Broadway productions.
Her office is advising consumers to be sure they're buying from reputable sites.
