Created by actor and director Lin Manual Miranda, “Hamilton” tells the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton. It features a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway.

The musical has won Tony​​, Grammy​​ and Olivier awards, along with the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and a citation from the Kennedy Center Honors.

Subsequent digital lotteries will begin at 10 a.m. each Friday and close at 12 p.m. the following Thursday for the upcoming week’s performances.
