    “He’s got the soundtrack, the poster, all kinds of 'Hamilton' memorabilia so I’m hoping to get him tickets,” Richter said.

    “Maybe he’ll take me. Maybe he’ll take a friend. I don’t know,” he said.

    Clarissa Smelser arrived at 4 a.m. She's been in love with the music since she took part in a sing-a-long at a Vista theatre.

    “I expected a whole lot more,” she said of the line of fans waiting for the box office to open. 

    Tickets range from $75 to $195 for regular performances, with a limited number of premium seats available for $595 for every performance. 

    Every performance, there will be a lottery for thirty-five $10 orchestra seat tickets. 

    The musical tells the story of Alexander Hamilton, one of America's Founding Fathers. The book, music, and lyrics are written by Lin-Manuel Miranda and it's based on Ron Chernow's biography of Hamilton.
