Hamilton fans just got the news that the record-breaking musical will finally be making its way to Pittsburgh, but tickets will be hard to get.

The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust box office has released the list of 2018-2019 Broadway musicals that will be coming to Pittsburgh. Hamilton will arrive in 2019, running at the Benedum Center Jan. 1 through Jan. 27.

Tickets will be extremely hard to get. People who were already subscribed to the PNC Broadway in Pittsburgh series and renew their subscriptions by May 1 will be guaranteed the same number of tickets as they have with their subscription. New subscribers are not guaranteed to get tickets.

The date for the general public to get tickets has yet to be released.

Junior Flannery Larson is a cast member in Baldwin’s musical and enjoys going downtown to watch musicals.

¨If I had the opportunity to see Hamilton I would definitely go, but tickets are really hard to get,” Larson said.   

The musical offers a twist on traditional musicals by incorporating hip-hop into United States history, which has made it popular among a wide range of people.  

Hamilton tells the story founding father Alexander Hamilton, who became the nation’s first Secretary of the Treasury and founded the National Bank. The musical shows Hamilton’s journey as an “orphaned immigrant” through his friendship with George Washington and his experiences in helping establish the new government.

At the Tony Awards, Hamilton took home 11 of the 16 awards for which it was nominated. Those 16 nominations set the record for the most at one award show.

Hamilton was written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, who is also known for writing the Tony-winning musicals In the Heights.
