HAMILTON‘s Producer Jeffrey Seller said: “25 years ago when I produced RENT, I introduced an in-person Broadway ticket lottery program whose goal was to provide affordable and accessible tickets. I am proud that every show I have produced has continued that same tradition. HAMILTON in Sydney is no different. I am thrilled that theHAMILTON digital lottery will be available to Australian audiences.”
NSW Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney, Stuart Ayres, said the digital ticket lottery was a fantastic initiative.
