Some people have paid hundreds to see “Hamilton.” You could see it for $10.
Full-price tickets are nearly sold out for the “Hamilton” national tour stop in Grand Rapids, Jan. 21-Feb. 9, but there’s still a chance to see it by winning a ticket through a digital lottery.
The hit Broadway musical, written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, features a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway.
“Hamilton” is the story of U.S. Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who rose to become George Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and then nation’s first treasury secretary.
