How much are you willing to spend to get two tickets to see the groundbreaking Broadway musical, “Hamilton,” and meet with its star and creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda?
The online auction site CharityBuzz – known for selling intimate access to famous people – auctioned off two tickets to the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical on Tuesday for more than $17,000.
The auction benefits A.R.T New York.
While it is the dearest, that was not the only “Hamilton”-related auction on the site. Others included four VIP tickets to the show (at press time at $7,250), tickets and dinner for two before the show ($2,450) and two tickets with a backstage tour with Miranda’s understudy Javier Muñoz ($8,000).
CharityBuzz has raised more than $167 million for causes around the world with at least 80 percent of net revenue benefiting many charitable organizations.
