Perhaps you’ve heard that Lin-Manuel Miranda is leaving Hamilton. It’s true: The creator of one of Broadway’s most groundbreaking musicals is moving on, and he’s not the only one—Leslie Odom Jr. and Phillipa Soo are also on their way out. All three will make their last appearance on the stage of the Richard Rodgers Theatre on July 9 at 8 p.m.—making a ticket to that performance the most coveted in Broadway history.
Tickets to an ordinary performance of Hamilton already sell for astronomical prices. So how much are people willing to shell out for a chance to say goodbye to the three original leads? We rounded up some of the most outrageous prices that tickets are selling for (and that’s even before all the fees!), below.
