Hamilton: 11/29/2019

So I have finally found out what all the excitement is about, and went to see Hamilton.

My wife and daughter were watching the parade on Thanksgiving morning, when a commercial came on advertising Hamilton in San Francisco, saying tickets were still available. My wife went online, and sure enough, we were able to get three tickets for the following day (we were not going to miss our shot!). The ticket prices were very reasonable, $99.00 each, which is way less than what I hear others have paid for tickets to a performance. The only down side was that the seats were not together, but we were in the same general area of the mezzanine, so that was fine.

While I’m not a huge fan of Broadway musicals, I do enjoy them, and this was definitely one of the better musicals I have seen. The songs were great, the story was engaging, and the stage was very cool. While I personally would not consider it to be $400-a-ticket good, it was well worth the hundred bucks a ticket we paid.

Since I’m not a theater critic, I don’t have much else to share. It was a cool show and I’m glad I went.

  1. Hi Jeff – I still haven’t seen it, but I have heard the music is excellent. Since I grew up outside New York, I’ve seen other Broadway shows, but nothing recent. Spending $400 seems like a lot! The last show I saw was Beauty and the Beast and I went for free because I was a chaperone for my son’s 6th grade class, and we spent the whole day in New York. Not sure I want to be in charge of a group of pre-teens loose in NYC again, though!
