The show came out like a Revolutionary cannon blast, and has shown no signs of slowing down.
Demand has increased. The average price for Hamilton tickets is now $411, making it the most expensive Broadway ticket on the secondary market and topping other hits, including The King and I and Book of Mormon.
Through the end of 2015, only five shows show an average price below $400 on the secondary market. The least expensive tickets for each range from $150 to $200 a piece.
In that same time period, through Dec. 31, only one show has a ticket listed below $100. That show is the 2 p.m. matinee on Wednesday, Dec. 16 with the cheapest Hamilton tickets listed at $98.
Hamilton did not come from nowhere; rather, it had a strong following as an off-Broadway production.
That popularity let to a sell-out of Hamilton tickets in the primary market through September almost immediately after they went on sale.
Tickets are currently sold out through the end of the year, placing a high premium on secondary market prices.
Hamilton is even outpacing creator Lin-Manuel Miranda's 2011 hit musical In the Heights, which drew similar critical acclaim. Throughout its run, In the Heightsaveraged a gross of $600,000 a week, placing it among the mid-tier of Broadway shows.
Hamilton has grossed $1.35 million a week.
With demand that high, it would be surprising to see the secondary market prices for the show drop any time soon.
