‘Hamilton’ brings in more than $7.5 million for Overture Center, per report
MADISON, Wis. — Broadway hit “Hamilton” brought in more than $7.5 million during its 24-show run at the Overture Center for the Arts, according to the Wisconsin State-Journal.
Overture Director of Public Relations Gary Kohn told the State-Journal that the show sold 53,023 tickets and generated $7.5 million in gross ticket sales. Kohn said it was the “biggest money-maker” in the performing arts center’s 15-year history.
“Hamilton” ran from Nov. 19 to Dec. 8, and thousands of people waited in lines earlier this season for the chance to get tickets.
In the article, Chris Vogel, Overture’s chief operations officer, said the 2016 run of “The Lion King” grossed $5.1 million — the previous high. Vogel said the Overture won’t know the exact profit for “Hamilton” until the end of the Broadway season.
