Good news, people! Lin-Manuel Miranda’s smash-hit Broadway musical “Hamilton” returns to Seattle this summer. “Hamilton” plays Aug. 3–Sept. 11, 2022 at Seattle’s historic Paramount Theatre. Tickets go on sale to the general public Monday, March 28, at 10 a.m.
Luckily, you won’t have to work nearly as hard to get tickets as you did last time around, when the show came to town in 2018. But lots of folks are itching to get out and see live theater again, and there’s a whole new crop of tweens and teens ready to discover modern musical theater. Some presale opportunities have gobbled up a lot of seats already, so to have your pick of dates and price points, you will want to take a look ASAP!
Performances take place generally Tuesday through Sunday, with matinee shows on weekends and occasional weekdays. Tickets for weeknight performances start at $49. Friday and weekend ticket prices start at $59. The best seats — in the Loge — cost in the range of $299–$349. Fees for the cheapest seats add on $12–$15 per ticket, and you can expect fees to rise proportionally up from there for more expensive seats. You can save on some fees by buying at The Paramount’s box office, open Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 10 a.m.–6 p.m.
It all adds up to a splurge of an outing, for sure. Like last time around, there will be a lottery selling 40 seats per performance at $10 a pop. Details on how to (try to) purchase these tickets will be announced later.
In addition to the bargain lottery tickets, select shows seek to make the performance more accessible to various groups.
- American Sign Language–interpreted performances take place Sunday, Aug. 14, Wednesday, Aug. 17, Saturday, Aug. 27, and Saturday, Sept. 3. Buy ASL-interpreted performances online.
- Open-caption performances take place Sunday, Aug. 7, and Saturday, Sept. 3. Buy open-caption tickets online.
- An AVIA audio-described performance takes place Sunday, Aug. 7. Buy seats for this performance (for anywhere in the house) online.
Taking the kids
