Right now, the hottest ticket on Broadway is “Hamilton,” the unexpectedly (to me) popular hip-hop musical about Alexander Hamilton (not 1992 Bassmaster Classic Champion Robert Hamilton Jr.). It has won many awards and achieved much acclaim, and therefore the producers of the show plan to raise the price of their premium tickets to $849. That three-digit price is just small potatoes in the grand scheme of things. Lin-Manuel Miranda, who created the show, wrote the music and stars as Alexander Hamilton, has announced that he is leaving the show in July, and it is expected that prime seats for his final performance will fetch in the range of $10,000.
