How to Get Hamilton Tickets in Chicago
You don’t need to sell a kidney or bribe a Chicago Public School student to get tickets to Hamilton in Chicago. You just need to find the right strategy for you and be willing to spend some time or some money on securing your golden tickets. Here are some tips and tricks for snagging your seats in the room where it happens.
Get In the Standby Line.
Even if the performance is sold out, Broadway in Chicago will start to release standby tickets two hours prior to showtime. So, head over to the PrivateBank and wait in line. There are no tents, chairs, or holding spots in line though, so make sure you bring comfortable shoes and a snack so you can be young and scrappy, but not hanrgy. Box office hours at the PrivateBank are Mon 10am-6pm, Tues 10am-7:30pm, Wed 10am-7:30pm, Thurs 10am-7:30pm, Fri 10am-7:30pm, Sat 10am-8pm, and Sun 11am-4pm.

Wait For It…
Keep checking out Broadway in Chicago and wait for the next block of tickets to go on sale. Are you willing to #waitforit? If so, this is the strategy for you.
Buy from a “guy”.
Yes, tickets seem to hover in the $300-$500+ range on secondary sales sites, but if you don’t mind shelling out the dough, there are certainly tickets available on the secondary market. You can check out Ticketmaster for verified resale tickets. Or, you can always hope a historic once in a lifetime night like the World Series Game 7 night will come around again and force tickets on StubHub down to $153. Also, an FYI, we definitely don’t endorse any of these secondary market platforms and whatever you do, make sure you do your research and avoid any scam-y situations or sketchy James Reynolds style folks.
So there you have it, you don’t have to duel anyone to get tickets to Hamilton in Chicago, you just need to look around… look around.
