In just a couple of days, “Hamilton” will be opening in Puerto Rico and will once again be starring its creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. This is pretty major, and we’re sure the entire island is buzzing about their own Puerto Rican boy coming home to bring this spectacular show to audiences who have never seen it.
Getting tickets to the show, however, is a whole other beast. It’s never been easy to get tickets to see this show, and this stint in Puerto Rico won’t be any different. Miranda is helping out in a big way. If he wasn’t already doing so much to raise money for the island’s hurricane recovery, this giveaway may put the funds over the top (and that’s a very good thing).
He has just announced that he will be choosing 50 people (that’s 100 tickets) to win tickets to closing night. We’ll let him explain:
“I’m finally in Puerto Rico and getting ready for the show to open on January 11th. Your outpouring of support has been amazing, and I couldn’t help but think — How can we get more of you to come here while continuing to support the Flamboyan Arts Fund and the Hispanic Federation?
So, here’s the deal:
- I am doing a 10-day Prizeo campaign. Think of it as #Ham4PR’s big send-off.
- During the campaign, we will select 50 winners to come to the closing night of Hamilton in Puerto Rico. It’s going to be emotional!
- Yep, you’re reading that correctly: 50 WINNERS!
Each winner will win round-trip flights for themselves and a +1, hotel accommodation for 2 nights, 2 tickets to closing night, and 2 passes to our closing night party on January 27th in San Juan.”
Closing night will be on January 27 in San Juan at the Centro de Bellas Artes Luis A. Ferrè Theatre, and aside from tickets to the show, the winner will also attend the closing night party!!
