'Hamilton' is coming back to DC! Here's when and where to get tickets

After selling out hundreds of theaters across the country, the award-winning musical is back at the Kennedy Center this March.

WASHINGTON — Heads up theater lovers and musical aficionados: You can now add scoring Hamilton tickets to your bragging rights again. The Kennedy Center announced on Tuesday that the best-selling musical will be back at the venue, and if the last tour was any indication, you're going to want to grab tickets fast.

Hamilton tickets will go on sale to the general public on Tuesday, March 9, with a pre-sale available to Kennedy Center, members the week prior on March 2.

The show will run at the venue from Jun. 16 - Sep. 20, 2020, and officials with the Kennedy Center are asking you to create a username on their ticket site ahead of time for easier access. New and current members will get access to the presale, meaning if you sign up early now, you can get a couple of days heads up.

The musical, written and starred by Lin-Manuel Miranda, tells the life and backstory of Alexander Hamilton in two acts. The show first premiered back in 2015 to critical acclaim and sold-out shows nationwide, winning 11 Tony Awards and nominated for 16. So yeah, it's good.

DMV residents were eager to see the show last tour at the Kennedy Center-- so badly that hundreds waited outside the venue for last-minute tickets in March of 2018, with ticket prices sky-rocketing up to $2,500 on resale sites.

You won't want to be feeling "Helpless" this go around for tickets, so don't throw away your shot. But if you do happen to miss the tickets, fear not: the musical will be hitting the big screens next year with the original cast. The film won't be an adaptation of the musical, but rather a live recording of the stage performance with the original cast, and is airing to theaters on Oct.15, 2021.
