The Broadway smash hit “Hamilton” is coming to Rochester for three weeks this spring, April 23 through May 12. But, ticket prices are soaring online before they’ve even gone on sale.
And now, the Rochester Broadway Theatre League, which is putting on the production, is warning customers not to get ripped off.
In a message, the league is telling customers that tickets aren’t yet available and urging them not to try to buy them online beforehand.
Linda Glosser from the Rochester Broadway Theatre League tells News 8, “The best way is the safest way, which is going through either Ticketmaster, which is our exclusive seller, or coming here to the Box Office on the day of the ‘on sale.'”
She adds, “I think one of the most important points that we can make today is that we have not put tickets on sale yet. They will not go on sale until some time in mid-March. The best way to figure that out is to go to our website and view our website, sign up for our email blast so you’re notified. It’s just RBTL.org. It’s pretty easy. We expect most tickets are going to be $200 or less. If you go online now you can find a speculative seller, that’s one who doesn’t have tickets in hand yet, who is absolutely willing to sell you a back of the balcony ticket for $300. It’s just not necessary.”
