Looking to score some last-minute “Hamilton” tickets?
The Atlanta run of the wildly popular musical about our nation’s first Treasury secretary is close to sold out, but Georgia Lawyers for the Arts has two prime, fourth-row orchestra tickets that it’s auctioning off right now to raise funds.
It’s a chance to see “Hamilton” from great seats and make a tax-deductible donation to Georgia Lawyers for the Arts, instead of paying a scalper. Alexander Hamilton himself would appreciate the fiscal savvy.
Georgia Lawyers for the Arts is holding an online auction on eBay for the tickets that will end on Monday, May 21 at 9:30 p.m. The group connects artists and inventors with pro bono attorneys and holds educational seminars to help these creators protect their intellectual property.
The show’s three-week Atlanta run starts May 22. The fourth-row aisle tickets, donated by a board member, are for the Saturday, June 9 matinee at the Fox Theatre.
Comparable seats retail for $645 on the Fox’s website, but only a handful are left. Online ticket reseller StubHub is offering similar tickets for that performance at $1,750 apiece.
“We’re always looking for creative ways to fundraise,” said Tasha Tavaras, the group’s director of programming.
“We’re a small nonprofit, so the more money we raise, the more help we can give to Georgia’s artists and inventors,” she added.
