MILWAUKEE — Don't throw away your shot! Single tickets for the Broadway smash "Hamilton" will go on sale Sept. 10, announced its sponsors Wednesday. The Broadway Across America performance will run Oct. 22 through Nov. 17.

Tickets will go on sale at 8 a.m. at the Marcus Performing Arts Center and on at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 10.

Johnson Financial Group Broadway at the Marcus Center and Broadway Across America have limited the maximum purchase of single tickets to eight per household. Prices for tickets range from $80 to $199 and will offer select premium seating options for $399.

If "there’s a million things [you] haven’t done, just you wait ..." there will also be a lottery for $10 seats. Limited to 40 tickets per performance, the details on how the lottery will work will be announced in the coming weeks.

The producer of the Milwaukee rendition, Jeffery Seller, notes that while the temptation exists to get cheaper tickets any way you can, "the best seats, the best prices and to eliminate the risk of counterfeit tickets, all purchases for the Milwaukee engagement should be made through"

"Hamilton" is the story of America's Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington's right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and was the new nation’s first Treasury secretary. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway, "Hamilton" is the story of America then, as told by America now.

One of the most coveted Broadway shows of our time debuted on Broadway in August 2015 and won 11 Tony Awards and a Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2016. The show has grossed more than $570 million in its three years.
