More Hamilton FAQs

How is it possible that there are tickets on secondary ticket sites and that they are so outrageously priced?

If you see ticket prices exceeding the $399 level, they are most likely coming from an unauthorized reseller source and may not be a valid ticket. 

The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust’s website, TrustArts.org, is the only official online ticket source for PNC Broadway in Pittsburgh tickets. We make every effort to sell directly to consumers so that our guests receive the best seats at the best price and the best customer service. We are dedicated to keeping tickets out of the hands of resellers by investing in technology that thwarts ticketing bots, employing legal measures to take down misleading websites that attempt to look official, identifying and cancelling orders placed by unauthorized resellers, 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 at TrustArts.org/OfficialTix. 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.
