Will tickets for this be expensive? Or the price of a regular broadway show?

The link says there are $30 tickets, but it doesn't give any other prices.

A friend of mine who stays in contact with several of the old cast members texted me when the story came out and said tickets to the general public are $45-150 ($30 tix are for people from the area). Probably will make the trip from Cali for this...never saw the original cast, by the time I saw it the first time both Mandy Gonzalez and Karen Olivo had left

Would really like to see this if I lived closer. It'd be nice if it was professionally filmed in some capacity, but I really don't see much of a possibility for that happening.

I will definitely be attending.

One of my all-time favorites...can hardly wait to see the show.

I was in NYC while the show was in previews. I'm still kicking myself for not taking a risk on a show I knew nothing about and seeing it for $30 a ticket. They were selling the WHOLE house for $30 a seat from what I understood. :-/

I would love to see this having seen the original cast twice when In The Heights opened on Broadway. I feel the same way as DEClarke, if I lived in New York, I would be there in a heartbeat!

I you never got a chance to see this musical make sure you see it this time around. Especially, since the original cast is going to be performing.

The only problem is that it's on a Monday night.

Does anyone know if Telecharge's 'on sale Friday' generally means typical box office/business hours or if it means Thursday at midnight?

The same friend who gave me the ticket price range told me Lin-Manuel's dad tweeted today it would be 10a EST. Yes, she apparently follows his father. She needs help.

And for the people who are saying "I wish I lived closer," I'm in San Diego. Unless you're in Hawaii or Alaska, I'm probably farther. And bringing a friend from LA. We're talking quasi-history here. Suck it up for love! (note: this is said mostly tongue-in-cheek, but I really am coming from San Diego for this event)

Doh, was hoping it'd maybe at least be 2 tix per person, as I do live in the Heights and plan to get myself a $30 ticket...ah well. Guess ill be going solo, then. :)

Yeah, I thought that was kinda weird. You might as well ask for two and let them tell you it's one per person :)

Or go back a 2nd time another day and maybe get another person to sell me a 2nd? Lol. Unless they make some kind of record of your name and address, I suppose...

Oh yeah, I'm sure it probably is...although, even if we couldn't sit together it'd be nice to get one of my equally poor friends in for $30! :) But I'll take what I can get...

Hee... In the heights is in the heights......
Some people can get a thrill, knitting sweaters and sitting still. That's okay for some people, who don't know they're alive!

I wonder if this show will lose some of its energy in a concert setting. For me, its energy was a big part of what made it so compelling.
