‘Hamilton' Opens Tonight in Hartford, Digital Ticket Lottery Underway

The wait for the national tour of the hit Broadway show "Hamilton: An American Musical" to come to Connecticut is over. Tuesday was opening night at the Bushnell in Hartford.

There will be 23 performances between Tuesday and Dec. 30 and you might not have missed your shot to get tickets.

There is a digital lottery for all performances, except for the show on Dec. 13.

Forty tickets will be sold for $10 each and you can enter through the official Hamilton app or through the Hamilton the Musical website.  

There was a lot of excitement in Hartford when the tickets went on sale in September and people lined up for hours before the box office opened.

“I’m here because my daughters want me to go, but it’s big. It’s all around the country and for Hartford to get this is a really big thing,” Dino Peruccio, of Manchester, said in September.

Staff from the Bushnell Performing Arts Center said the last time they saw people line up overnight for tickets before this was 12 years ago when the “Lion King” came to Hartford.
