Lin-Manuel Miranda Reveals HAMILTON on Disney+ Amplified Demand for Broadway Production


Hamilton is now playing at the Richard Rogers Theatre.

In a recent interview on CNBC, Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda revealed that the film capture of the Broadway production amplified the demand for ticket sales to the show on Broadway.

"It forever demolishes the idea that a beautifully shot version of your show diminishes the demand to see it live," Miranda said to Sara Eisen in the CNBC interview. "In all of our estimations, it's only amplified the demand to see 'Hamilton' live."

Miranda went on to state that, while he understands that it may be an expensive task, he hopes that this will encourage other Broadway productions to release filmed pro-shots moving forward.

"To have more pro-shots, to have those out in the world, I think is a win. I would love to see more of that going forward," he said.
