Hamilton Tickets Are Now On Sale In Toronto But Actually Buying Them Is A Struggle
It's only the pre-sale and there are already problems.
It's only the very first pre-sale, but "Hamilton" Toronto tickets are causing all sorts of problems for fans. Long wait times, getting kicked out of the queue and not being able to actually buy tickets are stressing people out. Who knew getting tickets to a musical could be so difficult?
The Emmy winning musical is set to come to Toronto in 2020 for a four-month run and fans are eager to get their hands on tickets but the process hasn't gone exactly as planned for some people.
"Hamilton" first made its way to Broadway in 2015 and a month after officially opening, the musical brought in $1.697 million USD in just one week. It has since shown in London, Puerto Rico, Chicago and other American cities.
Now it's coming to Toronto for its Canadian premiere.
"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," according to Mirvish.
Tickets sold through Mirvish range in price from $499 CAD for premium tickets right in front of the stage to $50 CAD for stools at the very back of the theatre.
Even though the "Hamilton" that's coming to Toronto doesn't feature Lin-Manuela Miranda, the musical's creator and original Alexander Hamilton, people are still frantically trying to get tickets to the show
But there's been problems with actually buying tickets and some people have been kicked out of line or timed out before they can even put in their credit card information because of the Mirvish site.
But it's not all bad. Despite the trouble with the site and the long wait times, some people did manage to snag tickets to Hamilton. And they are so excited, even if they spent a lot of money.
Before tickets were even on sale, resellers online were claiming they had tickets and tried to sell them at incredibly high prices.
So if you don't manage to get tickets during the presale or when they go on sale to the general public, be careful about where you go looking to find tickets.
Hamilton will run from February 11, 2020 to May 17, 2020 at the Ed Mirvish Theatre in Toronto.
