    People pay that for a pedestrian seat at a regular season NBA game. Value seems pretty good when compared to other events. Heck, Opera tickets are outrageously expensive. I just paid $180 for Book of Mormon.

    4matic, where'd you see it? I have the entire soundtrack memorized due to being forced to listen by my wife. I'd happily go see it if tickets were reasonable and I could tie into a city I'd like to visit anyway.

    over rated, over hyped
    just like rent, which should have never gotten out of a workshop as it was
    Hamilton lacks a solid book, the only reason it works is people already know the story
    go watch all that jazz if your bored
    then read "who needs theatre"

    SF. A1 cast. Better than Broadway. Prime seat is $200 face. Good seat is $95. ďIn the room where it happenĒ.

    I had a lottery ticket and scalped one for $100

    got friends on broadway
    it takes alot for me to be impressed
    was coming down off an acid trip at work when I was a kid and the conductor was hitting on me that's when I realized I'm out handed in my equity card and never looked back
    Falsettos at the lincoln center is the only show that's been decent and impressive in the past few years

    Steve Kerr, (from an article in The Athletic):

    I enjoy seeing people at work doing something really special thatís drawing emotion. So I love Broadway shows. I love watching people perform. And especially when thereís competition and thereís emotion and the energy back and forth. Thatís what does it for me.

    People already know the story? You have a much stronger belief in people's knowledge of 200 year old American history than I do.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd rather watch Hamilton than the Nutcracker or some other classical thing, but after seeing it a year or so ago with a client it just seemed a bit too worked up as the greatest thing since sliced bread.
    Da fuq?? Dude, it's 2019. Rap and Hip-Hop have been mainstream for at least 25 years.

    Back on topic. We saw Hamilton in SF last week. My wife won the tickets. It was good. Maybe even very good. She liked it more than I did, but I still liked it. Bought her the soundtrack for mommy's day.

    Show was great again. The choreography changed a little probably to keep it interesting for the actors.

    10yo girl and her mom sitting next to me. Girl been listening to the music and mom surprised her with show tickets. They drove 4 hours from Fresno and were driving back that night. 8 hours drive. Itís cool young people get interested in theater through this show. I gave the little girl some money to do something nice for her mom. Mom cried.. Feels good.

    My girlfriend just saw this in Baltimore, and played the "soundtrack" for a few days. Really annoying music. I guess it's more fun to see live, but, man, turn that stupid shit off.

    Round 3 in SF. Last minute tickets 8th row center. Just great. Even better now that I know the story and songs. $100 a seat was a steal. $326 face value.

    I love the cd version now fwiw.

    Also. Saw Book of Mormon. It’s funny and acting was great but mostly a forgettable story.

    Any better than the highly acclaimed Vagina Monologues?

    Anywhere you like and can afford. Lyft to theater.

    Depends what else you have planned and budget where you stay. Drop me a note and Iíd be happy to get you both in SFMOMA free if Iím around. Union Square is great for people watching and a lot of stuff to do and itís one Bart station from theater

    Getting a room you can afford in SF is not good advice. That may get you bed bugs and a room that has a door that hits the bed when you enter for $150/night. I know a few Ďcheapí options that are clean and safe, like the Oasis Inn, but they are not going to impress your wife. If you have money to burn, shit is easy to figure out. If not, splurge a bit and stay in a nice hotel. And hope Salesforce isnít having a conference during that time.

    Taking a Lyft is a good idea no matter what for date night.

    I'm seeing $250ish for rooms at the Omni and Hyatt Regency in the Financial/Embarcadero and a little less for the Marriott Marquis in SOMA. My wife is in the city fairly often for work and gets put up in pricier places than I'd prefer to spend. So not looking to impress, just a clean place to sleep.

    4matic, thanks for the offer, may take you up on that!
