Looking to snag a ticket to Hamilton in Chicago? You might have luck on the musical’s new smartphone app.
Hamilton, the uber-popular Broadway musical from Lin-Manuel Miranda that recently expanded to Chicago, announced the launch of an iOS and Android app Friday that’s packed with a variety of features, including a ticket lottery.
The app lets users enter to win two tickets for just $10, creating a simpler ticket buying experience for people looking to score a seat to the coveted show, the company said in a news release.
The app also features Hamilton stickers, camera filters, merchandise, music, news, and other content.
Down the road, the app will eventually incorporate augmented reality and interactive karaoke tracks, according to the release.
“We are constantly exploring ways to allow more people to experience Hamilton in its many forms,” Hamilton theatre producer Jeffrey Seller said in a statement. “This mobile app is designed to do just that — provide exciting new ways for fans to interact with and gain access to the musical they love.”
The app lottery is currently available for shows in Los Angeles, and will be available in New York on August 22 and Chicago on August 29.
