Long lines to get tickets to “Hamilton” in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON)—Thousands of people waited in line outside the Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco Monday morning just to get tickets to the popular Broadway musical “Hamilton.”

It is based on the best-selling book by Ron Chernow about one of the founding fathers of the United States Alexander Hamilton.

Monday at 10 a.m. was the last chance to get Hamilton tickets besides paying $3,000 for a scalped seat.

Theater fans seemed determined to not throw away their shot. Some started lining up Sunday afternoon just to get tickets. More people are waiting in a virtual line called Queue-It.

KRON4 spoke to theatergoers who say Hamilton, which won 11 Tony’s on Broadway and will play for five months in San Francisco, is worth the wait and worth the price.

Tickets between $100 to $524 are available by phone at 888-746-1799, on the SHN website and at the Orpheum Theatre on Market Street in San Francisco.
