If there’s a theater fan in your life, chances are all they’ve talked about since February is Hamilton, the improbable hip-hop musical hit about the Founding Father’s life.
Whether they’ve been able to get a ticket is probably a sore subject. After opening off-Broadway at The Public Theater the show moved to the Richard Rodgers Theatre in August, where it’s only getting more impossible to score a ticket by the day.
Well, if you have a bit of scratch to spare, there’s a special chance to see it. On two nights next year, Tuesday, Feb. 23, and Wednesday, March 9, the production will stage benefit performances for its former home.
This isn’t just a nostalgic romp back to where the phenomenon began. The shows will begin with a cocktails-and-canapes reception, then end with a talkback with the cast and creative team. Tickets go on sale Monday, Dec. 7, by calling 212-539-8537 or e-mail email@example.com.
If that’s not quite in your holiday budget, memberships to the Public are just $65 for early access to discounted tickets and a chance at the ultimate humblebrag — “I liked it before it was cool” — as well as 20 percent off food and drinks.
