In a press release, producer Jeffrey Seller warned against unauthorized tickets that could be sold on secondary sites: “It's tempting to get tickets any way you can,” he says. “There are many sites and people who are selling overpriced, and in some cases, fraudulent tickets. For the best seats, the best prices and to eliminate the risk of counterfeit tickets, all purchases for the Pittsburgh engagement should be made through trustarts.org.”
“Hamilton” is based on Ron Chernow’s biography of the founding father and features music and lyrics by Broadway darling Lin-Manuel Miranda.
