‘Hamilton’ fans, the wait is over; single tickets on sale today


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Single tickets for the Jacksonville performances of the wildly popular Broadway musical “Hamilton” went on sale Friday, beginning at 8 a.m. at the Times-Union Center, and dozens of fans were already lined up before dawn.

Tickets went on sale online at 10 a.m. at fscjartistseries.org.

Tickets for “Hamilton” will not be available for purchase by phone.

News4Jax spoke with the crowd waiting for their chance to snag a coveted spot in the audience for the musical, which blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway.

Steve Dressler said he arrived at 10 p.m. Thursday to make sure he could get tickets -- even though he just saw the show in Nashville two weeks ago.

“I thought it was going to be really crowded, and it actually wasn’t, but you never can tell, so I just thought I’ll stay. It’s a great show. Its’ worth it,” Dressler said. “It’s always a little different. I’ve noticed that. It’s great, and it’s just great to take the important people in your life. You’ll really enjoy it. I’m going to miss my shot.”

There is a maximum purchase limit of four tickets per household/account, and prices range from $59 to $179 with a select number of $349 premium seats available for all performances. Ticket prices do not include applicable facility fee and service charges.

There will be a lottery for 40 $10 seats for all performances. Details will be announced closer to the engagement.

“It’s tempting to get tickets any way you can. There are many sites and people who are selling overpriced, and in some cases, fraudulent tickets," said producer Jeffrey Seller. "For the best seats, the best prices and to eliminate the risk of counterfeit tickets, all purchases for the Jacksonville engagement should be made through fscjartistseries.org.”

FSCJ Artist Series officials issued similar warnings last May when two third-party websites appeared to be selling tickets, even though they did not have tickets to sell yet.
