Nov 28,2016 "Hamilton" sets new record for most money earned in a week on Broadway - $3.3 million

Nov 28, 2016"Hamilton" sets new record for most money earned in a week on Broadway - $3.3 million

"Hamilton," which uses hip-hop and a diverse cast to explore the life and death of Alexander Hamilton, also set a record for the highest premium ticket price charged by a Broadway box office - $998 - although some people have paid more buying tickets from resellers. The previous premium ticket price record was $700, for "Barry Manilow on Broadway" in 2013.
History is happening in Manhattan: "Hamilton" has set a record for the most money ever made in a single week by a Broadway show.
The musical, which attracted national attention just before the week began with criticism from President-elect Donald J. Trump of its quality and the manners of its cast, grossed $3.3 million last week. That's a huge number on Broadway, where only unusually strong shows gross more than $1 million in a week, and most pull in far less.
"Hamilton," which won the Tony Award this year for best new musical, is now the first Broadway show to gross more than $3 million for an eight-performance week. In 2013, "Wicked" grossed $3.2 million during a week in which that show had nine performances, one more than usual.


Why 'Hamilton' Has Heat:
What's the story behind a show that's become a Broadway must-see with no marquee names, no special effects and almost no white actors? Erik Piepenburg explains, in six snapshots, why "Hamilton" has become such a big deal. Thirteen shows grossed more than $1 million last week, including four that exceeded $2 million - "Hamilton," "The Lion King," "Wicked" and"Aladdin"
Overall, the 34 shows running during the week that ended on Nov. 27 grossed $35.3 million, making it the highest-grossing Thanksgiving week, according to the weekly grosses report released by the Broadway League. The figures are not adjusted for inflation.

What is Hamilton the musical about?
Hamilton is a musical about the life of American Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, with music, lyrics and book by Lin-Manuel Miranda. The show, inspired by the 2004 biography Alexander Hamilton by historian Ron Chernow, achieved both critical acclaim and box office success.
How much do Hamilton tickets cost?
To capitalize on this strong demand, Hamilton's producers raised ticket prices for newly scheduled 2017 performances. Now the top ticket price is $849 (for 200 premium tickets) and the remaining 1,075 regular seats range from $179-$199.
How long is the play Hamilton?
Running Time: 2 Hours and 45 Minutes. Including a 15-Minute Intermission. Javier Murioz will play the role of Alexander Hamilton at select weekend matinee performances.

Hamilton is already one of the most successful Broadway musicals ever, but the majority of its most ardent fans have never actually seen it. Since it opened in New York in 2015, the show - a hip-hop musical about the life of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and the American revolution - has sold out its whole run, won the Pulitzer Prize for drama, and was nominated for a record-breaking 16 Tony awards, eventually winning 11. Hamilton employs a cast of non-white actors to tell the story of the founding of America in a way that looks very different from conventional history textbooks.And yet, even though it has so far been impossible for most people outside of New York to see the show in person and there is no filmed version of it, it has already become a worldwide phenomenon.

Recently, Hamilton found itself embroiled in a spat with President Elect Donald Trump, after cast member Brandon Victor Dixon, along with the rest of the cast, publicly spoke to the incoming vice president Mike Pence read out a statement telling Mr Pence that the multiracial and multicultural cast is concerned about the Trump administration.
President Elect Donald J. Trump has reacted for this in is Tweet "Our wonderful future V.P. Mike Pence was harassed last night at the theater by the cast of Hamilton, cameras blazing.This should not happen! 7:18 PM - 19 Nov 2016." and once again " The Theater must always be a safe and special place.The cast of Hamilton was very rude last night to a very good man, Mike Pence. Apologize! 7:26 PM - 19 Nov 2016 "
