Quelle Chance! Hamilton Tickets!!!


While in NYC yesterday, I decided to try to see “Hamilton,” the Broadway phenom. After walking to the theater and standing in the “cancellations” line for an hour, a young lady came up and offered two tickets for $560 each. The guy next to me (Drew) and I negotiated her down, and outbid another guy in line, and ended up paying $310 each. Yeah, crazy, I know. But it was a bargain! Our seats were 4th row orchestra, and we could almost smell the actors!

The originator, writer, composer, and lead actor in the show was Lin-Manuel Miranda. I immediately recognized him from somewhere. Just before intermission, I realized that he was the star of one of Nadiyah and my favorite Sesame Street episodes! It’s the one where Big Bird decides to move to a new habitat.
