In case you haven’t heard, Hamilton, the hottest Broadway show in New York sets aside 46 seats in the first two rows for lottery winners to purchase for just $10 (aka a Hamilton). Here’s everything you need to know to win the NYC (Chicago or LA) Hamilton Ticket Lottery and score some autographs too! And yes, I actually won two awesome center orchestra tickets last month for just $20.
