Hamilton is returning to Atlanta’s Fox Theatre this month. The upcoming shows will take place from August 22nd to September 26, 2021.
Here’s everything you need to know about getting Hamilton tickets, avoiding ticket reseller prices, and playing the HAM4HAM ticket lottery to score $10 seats — details below!
UPDATE on 9-14-2021 — price drop!
We’ve just learned that the limited view seats for Hamilton have dropped to $49 for the duration of the show’s run.
Some of these seats are close to the stage in the orchestra section, but are so far off to the side that you can’t see action taking place on the edge of the stage. Others are in the balcony section; these are either off to the side or far back.
The $49 seats have a fee of $13.50, PLUS a $5 order charge — for a total of $67.50. This is by far the lowest price we’ve ever seen for Hamilton tickets from a reputable seller — in this case the actual Fox Theatre ticketing website.
We’ve also found some premium seats that have dropped to $199. This is down from to $399. Some of these are Center Orchestra, but are single seats that are “stranded.” There is a $39 fee and a $5 order charge, for a total of $243 on tickets that once went for $800 during the last Hamilton run at the Fox.
The performances with the most number of seats available are on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Weekend performances are down to less than 50 available seats — some are down to single digits.
You can view the number of tickets available for each show date online.

Hamilton at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta
There will be 39 Hamilton shows over this 5-week run, including both evening shows and weekend matinees.
Tickets are available by visiting FoxTheatre.org/Hamilton.
You can CLICK HERE to see a list of show dates that tells you how many seats remain for each performance. (The Fox has roughly 4,600 seats!)
HINT: If really want a good view of the stage, consider shopping for single seats that have been left stranded as the seats around them were snapped up. You can still go to the show with a friend, you just won’t be sitting next to each other.
Ticket prices for Hamilton‘s 2021 run
Prices range from
$80 $49 for a limited view to $399 $199 for premium seats (prices updated on 9-14-2021).
There will also be a lottery for forty (40) $10 seats for all performances. (see below)
Note that fees are quite high — about $60 for premium tickets at checkout, as well as a $5 “order charge.”
The $80 seats have a fee of only $18, plus that extra five bucks.

The Hamilton ticket lottery
The Ham4Ham lottery is open to anyone over 18. Winners are allowed to purchase up to two tickets for just $10 each. That’s where the name comes from — you hand over a Hamilton (a ten-dollar bill) for a Hamilton ticket.
There are 40 seats per show reserved for lottery winners. (You decide when you enter whether to claim one or two tickets. Assuming everyone will choose two tickets, there will only be 20 winners for each lottery.)
The procedure for the lottery has changed in 2021.
You can now enter for every performance in a week all at once, instead of having to return every day to enter for one show at a time.
Each digital lottery opens at 10 a.m. on a Friday and closes at noon on the following Thursday — for the following week’s performances. So, for example, the lottery that opens on August 13th will be for shows that take place during the week of August 22nd to 29th.
If you win, you’ll be notified on a Thursday between noon and 4 p.m., via email and/or push notifications from the app. You’ll then have only two hours to claim your tickets and pay for them. Again, you can claim up to two tickets at $10 each.
You’ll claim the tickets at Will Call on the day of the show. Note that you must have a valid, non-expired photo ID that matches the name you used to enter — and your tickets are non-transferable.
There are two ways to enter the lottery: through the official Hamilton app (available in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store), and online through a browser at hamiltonmusical.com/lottery.
Tips for winning the HAM4HAM ticket lottery
Don’t throw away your shot!
We recommend doing everything possible to maximize your chance of winning the daily ticket lottery.
Here are our tips:
- Enter for every performance without fail. In the words of Hamilton, You don’t get a win unless you play in the game.
- Get the Hamilton phone app — and enable notifications. You’ll get a reminder when the lottery opens (see mobile screenshot, below).
- Stop what you’re doing when you get the reminder. Just enter the lottery, before it slips your mind.
- Pay attention to your email and the phone app on Thursdays — if you win, you’ll be notified between noon and 4 p.m. and you have to claim your tickets immediately.
- Don’t forget about the matinees. On Saturdays and Sundays, there are two shows — you have to enter each one separately.
- Use social media. After you enter the lottery, click on the social media buttons to share on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. You’ll get an extra entry for each platform you share on.
- Make a pact with a pal. You each enter every lottery for two tickets, and you take each other to the show if one of you wins. In the words of Burr, Grab a friend, that’s your second.
And in the words of King George, Good luck!
