'Hamilton' to Fundraise for Hillary Clinton With Additional Performance
Tickets for the July 12 matinee start at $2,700 and soar as high as $100,000.
Hamilton is giving Hillary Clinton supporters an additional opportunity to see the hit Broadway musical while also fundraising for the Democratic nominee.
On July 12, the cast will put on a matinee showing (11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.) in honor of Clinton — "Hamilton: An American Musical with special guest Hillary Rodham Clinton" — with tickets starting at $2,700 for a general seat and reaching as high as $100,000 for an "event chair" entry, which includes "two Premium Seats and Wrap Party with Hillary and other special guests, and Invitation to the Democratic National Convention," according to Hillary Clinton's official website.
For $10,000, buyers will score a premium seat that includes a photo reception with Clinton; and for the $33,400 host ticket, ticketholders will sit in a premium seat as well as enjoy a "wrap party with Hillary and other special guests" after the show.
The Tuesday matinee will add an additional performance to the week's original slate of eight shows. Despite the fundraiser being held in Clinton's honor, Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda and co-stars Leslie Odom, Jr. and Phillipa Soo are not expected to perform as they will be leaving the show following their final performance on July 9.
Ticket prices for the musical have soared as the Broadway hit has gained massive popularity, with premium seats at a current high of $849.
Hamilton's matinee showing is presented by the Hillary Victory Fund, whose efforts are to raise money for the Democratic nominee's Hillary for America campaign.
