As an example, my parents took my sister to see Wicked in...I want to say 2005. It took them over a year to get tickets, and it would've taken longer but my dad had a contact through his work that helped him out. And when they did finally get the tickets, they were for 7 months after they were acquired.

I contest this statement. I moved out to DC from Indiana 11 years ago, and I saw Les Miserables in Chicago, and Phantom of the Opera at the Murat in Indianapolis prior to that. Both of them involved buying tickets a few months in advance and then driving to get there. At the very least, you don’t just walk up to the box office if going to see the show involves any travel.

It's partially a prestige thing on the east coast, that inflates the numbers along with regular people that just want to see a play.

Not here. I remember when Wicked was new and came to my area. Tickets sold out the second they were open to the public, but the secondary ticket market usually isn’t outrageous, and the tickets will be available all the way up until the show.

I’ve been to shows in Chicago, too (Les Mis as well), but it was with my high school so I don’t remember the ticket purchasing details. Chicago isn’t much like any other place in the midwest, though. I can’t speak for Indianapolis.

I mean, you can get tickets day of at top flight east coast theaters...but they'll cost like 10-20 times more, sometimes higher even.

Similar thing on the secondary market, you get taken for a ride cause there's such a high demand for them.

Althoooough... I have seen some crazy prices at the TKTS booth in Times Square before. If you’re not too picky about the show you go to, you can get into some good ones last-minute for reasonable prices.

There’s also a much higher risk out here that you could end up buying counterfeit tickets if you go with the secondary market. (Outside of the aforementioned TKTS booth.)

Wow, so you guys are billionaires?

Seriously, though, that's awesome! I expect you two to share the experience by saturating this game's thread with Hamilton quotes.

Ha! No, I kinda explained this earlier but not super well. Kennedy Center members get the opportunity to purchase Hamilton tickets at a reduced price. Opportunities are chosen by lottery; your number comes up, you have so many minutes to buy so many tickets on a certain weekend.

A friend of mine is a member, her number came up, and I happened to see her Facebook status 3 minutes after she said "IM me in the next 5 minutes if you want Hamilton tickets."

Funny thing, I actually was the one who introduced HER to Hamilton; we carpool together to one of my chorus rehearsals and I played it for her on the drive like 2 years ago.
