You, like every other theatrically-inclined NYC tourist and resident, are dying to see Hamilton, the new musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda that has drawn in what feels like the entire world. But unless you’ve got money to burn (rear mezzanine side seats for Wednesday matinees are on StubHub for around $400), a lucky streak (10 people win a pair of tickets in the pre-show lottery), or an incredible amount of patience (there are still tickets available for next July!), the forecast doesn’t look good.
Luckily, the Tri-State Area is a dejected Hamilton fan’s paradise, with a bevy of historic sites referenced in the show and once frequented by the Revolution’s key players. Cue up the cast recording, ready your vocal cords, and follow our slideshow to heal your heart with Hamiltunes.
