I was lucky enough to see Hamilton last Wednesday and it was everything it promised to be and more. The acting, the story telling and singing are top notch (I am still dreaming of Eliza’s voice).
The show runs until January 20 at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. Although it’s not easy to get tickets, there are some random seats available and I urge you all to try your best to see this blockbuster show!
In addition, producer Jeffrey Seller and Broadway in Fort Lauderdale are featuring a digital lottery for Hamilton, where forty (40) tickets will be sold for every performance for $10 each. Please visit http://hamiltonmusical.com/lottery for all the details and to register.
