WASHINGTON— Hillary Clinton supporters will get a chance to see the hit musical “Hamilton” if they’re willing to pay prices that are breathtaking even by Broadway standards.

Tickets for a special matinee July 12 to benefit her campaign start at $2,700 each, while $10,000 will get a “premium seat” that includes a photo session with Clinton.

The campaign website says that for $100,000 people can get a deal that includes two premium seats, a “wrap party” with Clinton “and other special guests” plus other benefits.

The hip-hop-flavored biography about the first U.S. treasury secretary is the hardest ticket to get on Broadway, even at a record $849 for a premium ticket and even higher prices in a thriving black market.

“Hamilton” won 11 Tony Awards, including best musical.
