TAMPA, Fla. — "Hamilton" fans rejoice because the famous show is coming to Tampa. This is everything you need to know. 

You can purchase single tickets online, over the phone or in person at the Straz Ticket Center starting at 9 a.m. on November 16. The limit is four tickets per account for the show and they will range in price from $86 to $196. There will also be a select number of premium seats available for $489.  

The performances will be between February 12 - March 10, 2019 at the Straz Center. 

"Hamilton" is the story of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and was the new nation’s first Treasury Secretary. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway, HAMILTON is the story of America then, as told by America now. 

With book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, "Hamilton" is based on Ron Chernow’s biography of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton.

“It’s tempting to get tickets any way you can. There are many sites and people who are selling overpriced, and in some cases, fraudulent tickets. For the best seats, the best prices and to eliminate the risk of counterfeit tickets, all purchases for the Tampa engagement should be made through The Straz,” Producer Jeffrey Seller said. 

If you plan to purchase tickets over the phone, the number to call is 813-229-7827. For more information on the event, visit the Straz Centers website.

"Hamilton" features scenic design by David Korins, costume design by Paul Tazewell, lighting design by Howell Binkley, sound design by Nevin Steinberg, hair and wig design by Charles G. LaPointe and casting by Telsey + Company, Bethany Knox, CSA. The musical is produced by Jeffrey Seller, Sander Jacobs, Jill Furman and The Public Theater.
