DENVER -- The Broadway hit “Hamilton” is coming to the Buell Theatre starting in February, and tickets are selling on the secondary market for $1,000 a seat.
But executives say buyer beware. Those websites do not have tickets in hand because tickets have not gone on sale yet.
“A lot of these tickets are actually sold speculatively, which means that these individuals are assuming they will be able to acquire 'Hamilton' tickets, and then sell them to the general public at whatever price they choose,” said John Ekeberg, the executive director of the Broadway Division at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.
DCPA does work to prevent third parties from buying up tickets for resale.
There are obvious risks of buying a ticket from one of the sites. Executives say you may not get a ticket, the ticket could be fake or customers could overpay.
They suggest buying from DenverCenter.org when tickets go on sale after the New Year.
Email updates on "Hamilton" tickets will be provided. DCPA expects to announce the details about tickets by the end of the year.
