If you thought you threw away your shot at seeing “Hamilton” at the Hippodrome Theatre, here’s some news that is sure to satisfy.

Unfortunately, you’ll have to wait for it.

Lin Manuel-Miranda’s hit musical on founding father Alexander Hamilton will return to the Baltimore stage in 2021, from June 8 to July 3. All further details, such as how to acquire tickets, will be announced at a later date, the theater said in a release.

The Hippodrome will announce its 2020-2021 slate of traveling Broadway shows on Jan. 14.

Here are some details from the show’s run at the Hippodrome earlier this summer that could prove to be important. Purchasing tickets, which went on sale in May for a run that went from June 25-July 21, required registering with Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan program–the goal being to keep the tickets out of the hands of re-sellers.

Prices ranged from $81.50-$189, including fees, with a few premium seats available at $424.50. But the theater also made a limited number of $10 seats available at each performance.

Also, patrons who subscribe for the theater’s entire season of shows were given early access for buying “Hamilton” tickets.

In June, shortly before the show’s opening night in Baltimore, The Sun reported ticket sales were slow compared with other markets, namely nearby Washington, D.C., where thousands of people lined up to buy tickets to see the musical at the Kennedy Center. As DCist put it, “If You Missed ‘Hamilton’ in D.C., You Can Just Go To Baltimore, Apparently.

Ron Legler, president of the Hippodrome, told the paper at the time this was the desired result of the theater’s decision to release the tickets a month ahead of time instead of earlier.

“[It’s] so that we can make sure that the fans of ‘Hamilton’ and our loyal patrons are not getting gouged with ticket prices,” he said.

Clearly, organizers with the traveling production aren’t too concerned since they didn’t say no to this opportunity to return to Baltimore.
