since it was announced several years ago that the show would be coming to Tampa in the 2018-2019 season.

Parent to Parent About a month before Christmas, tickets for the much-anticipated U.S. tour of the musical Hamilton finally went on sale. My kids, especially David and Daniel, have been excited about its arrival ever

So my Christmas shopping became very easy for three of my four kids. And with the lottery system and restrictions on the number of tickets per address, it was pretty easy to downplay our chances of getting tickets so that they could still be surprised on Christmas, provided I actually was successful. Well the morning arrived, and I joined the virtual queue on three different browsers. When the random numbers were assigned, I got over twenty thousand on one browser, eighteen thousand on another, and my best one was just a little over fourteen thousand. So I did the math on the number of shows and seats and figured out that, even if the seats might not be great, I would almost certainly be able to get tickets. Four hours later, I did just that for a performance during the final week of the Tampa stop, and the seats were actually a little better than I had expected. The kids were ecstatic, but it turned out that maybe the seats were actually a little too good. Because about a week after New Year’s, David came into my room staring at his phone, asking, “What row are our Hamilton tickets in?”

I told him, and he looked up the going price on the secondary market, and he’s been very conflicted ever since. He really, really wants to see the show, but he is also extremely practical, so he has a hard time passing up the potential profit. He has been suggesting that we could sell the tickets we have, buy cheaper seats in one of the balconies, and pocket the difference (side note – the Straz Center strongly discourages selling tickets at inflated prices, and even reserves the right to cancel them, so his suggestion is not without risk!). I have managed to talk him off the ledge each time he’s brought it up, and he is still excited to go next week and sit in the good seats I waited all morning to buy. Although I think he might still be wishing he could sit a little further back with a few hundred extra dollars in his pocket! Until next time,

Jennifer
