Comin' In Hot



It’s no secret the hip-hop Broadway musical Hamilton is making its way to San Francisco this spring and summer. The Tony Award– winning sensation portraying the life of Alexander Hamilton, one of this nation’s founders (and the guy on the $10 bill) through rap music has been a hot ticket since its debut in July 2015. As seats went on sale this past December, tens of thousands of hopeful S.F. theatergoers logged in to a virtual queue, hoping to snag a coveted spot, while hundreds more lined up at the door of the Orpheum Theatre. Hours later, tickets were proclaimed sold out, leaving thousands with not much to sing about. Here are some historically big numbers. shnsf.com
