Omg! I have been entering the Hamilton lottery every day since Thanksgiving, determined to keep going until I could finally secure tickets for the Lin Manuel Miranda musical. And this morning, I got a notification that I won, and that I needed to purchase my two tickets by 4 PM. The cost was ten dollars per ticket through the lottery! I went ahead and paid for them at once, even before I knew if anyone was available to go with me. I mean, obviously someone would be convinced to go with me! Ten dollars for a ticket that cannot currently be had for less than one thousand dollars apiece in New York City? A no brainer! It turns out that my husband can't go, as he has an unavoidable commitment on that night, but my daughter is over the moon about accompanying me! We went on for several texts, sending emojis and bitmojis and GIFs to communicate our excitement. We're going to see Hamilton! Wooo hoooo!
I did promise my man that I'd keep entering the lottery daily even after I see the show, in a quest to get tickets for a night on which he can attend. But honestly, I think my girl is more stoked than he could possibly be to get the first chance to see this show that she's been singing the soundtrack to for months and months. Stay tuned!
Congratulations. My daughter-in-law managed to get a seat in London to see it. She came home talking about it for the next three months. We never heard about anything else that she did in London. I mean, the Tower, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace...nope. We heard how much she loved the show. Enjoy yourselves.ReplyDelete
Congratulations! Lucky lucky you are! How wonderful to be able to see this show. I can't wait to hear about the experience. Wow!!ReplyDelete
You're going to be in the room where it happens! (I know...I couldn't resist.) I haven't gotten into Hamilton as much as others, but at $10 per ticket I am definitely going to enter the lottery when it opens here in Pittsburgh (I think it opens December 30 for us.) Enjoy!ReplyDelete
Nothing to do with this post - just to say your tears and prayers and joy will stay with me sister .I did not know whether to tell the world why I had been away but the response , especially yours , has made me want to carry on writing again .There is very dry sherry and homemade mince pies warm from oven - will you share them with me .ReplyDelete

It's Quiet Uptown sold me on this show. I thought it was good until that point, but the raw emotion and shared human experience of that song ripped through me. Congratulations of winning the lottery!ReplyDelete
