Did the political stunt the cast of the Broadway show “Hamilton” pulled against Vice President-elect Mike Pence affect ticket resales of the popular “sold out” Broadway show?
Following the display of the cast of the case of Hamilton singling out Pence for a lecture from one of the show’s actors over the incoming administration’s politics during the curtain call, detractors of Donald Trump gloated that the incident would not hurt the show’s bottom line, because it is sold ou for at least two years.
Many claimed tickets are nearly impossible to attain unless one is wealthy enough to shell out $1,200 dollars to pay a brokerage house for the seats.
However, the online resale ticketing site stubhub.com shows at least 383 upcoming Hamilton show tickets ranging between $325 to $1100 per seat.
Ticketmaster has tickets available for upcoming shows this week and throughout the year for as low as $139.
