How much will tickets cost?

Single ticket prices will be determined prior to the public onsale, and will vary by date and availability.

I see tickets on sale for hundreds of thousands of dollars. Why is that?

Tickets for Hamilton are not yet on sale. If you see tickets for hundreds or thousands of dollars, you are probably buying from a third-party broker. There is no guarantee these tickets are genuine.

While it is tempting to get tickets any way you can, there are many sites and people who are selling overpriced and in some cases fraudulent tickets. For the best seats, the best prices and to eliminate the risk of counterfeit tickets, all purchases for the Pittsburgh engagement of Hamilton and all PNC Broadway in Pittsburgh shows should be made through the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust’s website, TrustArts.org, at the appropriate time.

We make every effort to sell directly to consumers so that our guests receive the best seats, at the best price, and receive the best customer service. We are dedicated to keeping tickets out of the hands of resellers by investing in technology that thwarts ticketing bots, by employing legal measures to down misleading websites that attempt to look official, by identifying and cancelling orders placed by scalpers and brokers, and our ongoing efforts to educate the public to the dangers of purchasing from brokers and the secondary ticket market.

Please see our official ticketing source page and video more information. Tickets for Hamilton or any other Pittsburgh Cultural Trust event purchased on a secondary site cannot be guaranteed.

All tickets found to be sold above face value will be invalidated without warning.

Are group sales available for Hamilton?
