Tickets for "Hamilton" at the DCPA in Denver 2020 go on sale April 20

Denver Center for the Performing Arts on Wednesday released on-sale details for “Hamilton” tickets in a bet that the national tour of the Tony-winning Broadway musical will go on as planned this summer.

The show is scheduled to play the Buell Theatre at the Denver Performing Arts Complex from Aug. 12 to Oct. 4. Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning at 10 a.m. on Monday, April 20, via

“I daydream a lot about standing in the lobby of the Buell again, with people coming through the doors, tickets in hand,” said John Ekeberg, executive director of DCPA’s Broadway division. “I’d even be willing to usher that day, because I’d just be so excited to have (a live theater) experience again.”

Ekeberg’s optimism is shared by many in the theater world, judging by the cities that “Hamilton” is visiting just before and after Denver, such as Fort Worth and Houston, Texas, and Washington, D.C. Shows that were supposed to be taking place in May in Canada and U.S. cities such as Atlanta and St. Louis have been rescheduled to the fall.

However, DCPA would follow any guidelines set forth by the city and/or state, which includes shuttering the Buell theater if necessary, Ekeberg said.

Tickets for the show are only on sale digitally, DCPA said in a Wednesday press release that made no mention of the coronavirus pandemic. Subscribers were previously able to buy tickets starting Feb. 25.

“There is a maximum purchase limit of eight tickets per account for the engagement,” officials said. “When tickets go on sale, prices will range from $69 to $169 with a select number of $299 premium seats available for all performances. There will also be a lottery for a limited number of $10 seats for all performances. Lottery details will be announced closer to the engagement.”

“Hamilton,” which appears as an “added attraction” on DCPA’s subscription series, is the only show listed on DCPA’s calendar through August. The nonprofit organization last week canceled the remainder of its current shows, including this summer’s “Book of Mormon” tour, following layoffs and other cost-cutting measures the week prior.

DCPA is offering refunds to previously purchased tickets, but buyers must request them specifically, or else the money stays in a virtual DCPA account (where it can then be applied to later purchases or donated).

Should “Hamilton” get canceled, tickets can be refunded, Ekeberg said. But he’s hopeful that won’t be necessary. He said today’s on-sale announcement is DCPA’s reaction to the most up-to-date information out there.

“So many people have been excited about (‘Hamilton’s’) return so, to some degree, putting these tickets on sale feels like a delivery on our promise,” he said. “That’s what’s within our control at this point.”

The normally bustling Denver Performing Arts Complex, which also hosts performances by the Colorado Symphony, Colorado Ballet, Opera Colorado and others, has been near-silent since state and city officials instituted stay-at-home orders last month.
