    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.
    Well maybe I'm the faggot America

    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.
