    I haven’t had the opportunity to see Hamilton yet (and possibly never will) due to the fact that tickets are notoriously horrific to get. If you want to see it, you have to endure the ticket lottery which, like any lottery, offers a pretty slim chance of success. Now the musical has added another way to snag tickets: an app.

    The official Hamilton app launched Friday. Within it you can enter to win the opportunity to buy two $10 tickets for the show (exchanging a Hamilton for Hamilton, ha!).

    Tickets are available now just for the show’s performances in Los Angeles, with 40 discount tickets being given out with each lottery.

    Lotteries open at 11am PST two days before each show, and close at 9am the day before the performance — that means you’re not going to have a ton of time to make travel plans if you are in fact a winner. Two hours after the lottery closes, officials will email or text you to let you know you’ve won, and you’ll have until 4pm PST that day to purchase the ticket or you’ll lose out. So, basically, you better be waiting by your phone and have a totally free schedule (or be willing to drop everything for Hamilton) if this is going to work out at all.

    Lotteries for the New York show will start in the app on August 22nd, and tickets for the Chicago show will become available on August 29th.

    Even if you don’t win tickets (which, let’s face it, is probably what’s going to happen), there are a few other Hamilton-themed features within the app. Notably, the news about the musical, virtual stickers and a feature called #HamCam for taking Hamilton-themed selfies.

    Going forward, there’s also the promise of a new augmented reality feature, interactive karaoke tracks, and “exclusive ticket access” soon. So, maybe the lottery won’t be the only way to get tickets using the app in the future.
