Scoring tickets for the national tour of “Hamilton,” which kicks off next year in San Francisco before heading to Los Angeles, may not be as simple as walking up to the box office and asking for a pair of seats. At least not for now.
Local audiences who are planning to see the hit musical can obtain tickets only by purchasing or renewing a full-season subscription at the SHN Golden Gate Theatre in San Francisco or the Pantages Theatre in L.A.
The Pantages, where the musical will run from Aug. 11, 2017, to Dec. 30, 2017, said the sale of single and group tickets for “Hamilton” also will be announced.
A complete ticket package at the Pantages for 2016-17 season can range from $1,027 for the best seats in the house to $236 for less desirable sections. The package includes tickets for all seven season productions, including “Hamilton.”
Pricing for individual “Hamilton” tickets in either city hasn’t been announced.
In New York, where the musical opened last summer at the Richard Rodgers Theatre, tickets have become hot items, with individual seats going for as much as $475 for certain performances.
