Everyone knows that the critically-acclaimed and publicly-adored show is the hottest ticket in town, but the extent of its commercial success has been unknown- until now. Rose revealed that advance ticket sales of HAMILTON are now upwards of $57 million. In fact, a new block of tickets went on sale just today, giving fans a chance to snag seats through October 2016.
