How it works: Forty tickets will be sold for $10 apiece for every performance at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre, where "Hamilton" will play Friday through Dec. 30. Ticket hopefuls enter by going to or by downloading a new “Hamilton” app (

The daily lottery opens at 11 a.m. Pacific time two days prior to the performance date and closes at 9 a.m. Pacific time the day before the performance. So, for a Wednesday show, the lottery would open at 11 a.m. Monday and close at 9 a.m. Tuesday. About two hours after the lottery closes, winners are chosen and notified by email or text.
