The Grammy, Tony, and Pulitzer Prize winning musical Hamilton is coming to San Francisco next spring, and we now for the first time have the official dates for the five-month run. The Mercury News reports that the production will open on March 14 and run through August 5.
As you probably already know, the hugely popular show chronicles the life of founding father and the first US Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton, and has enjoyed a sold-out Broadway run over the last year. A Chicago production opens this fall, but separately the first national tour begins with a new cast in San Francisco. The New York production will continue while the show tours, and The New York Times reported in January that producers are considering a London production as well.
Following the SF run, the show is set to move to Los Angeles, with other cities possibly to follow.
The surefire way to see the performance was to buy a SHN subscription — an option which is no longer available. Now, if you want to score what is absolutely going to be the hottest ticket in town, you'll need to purchase single tickets. While you should expect those to be fairly expensive, a few of you lucky souls might swing tickets for as little as $10.
SHN is launching a lottery that will allow an as-of-yet undetermined amount of theater goers to grab tickets for the next-to-nothing price. Producers did the same thing in NYC, but if that's any guide, don't get your hopes up — the number of cheap seats was extremely limited each day, and drew huge crowds.
Tickets have yet to go on sale, and the on-sale date also hasn't been announced. When that does happen, we recommend you act fast.
