'Hamilton' starts previews at Pantages; contest giving away $10 tickets

Hamilton creator and all-around cool guy Lin-Manuel Miranda announced the app in a Twitter video on Friday morning. The merchandise store will sell exclusive app items.

"We are constantly exploring ways to allow more people to experience Hamilton in its many forms", says producer Jeffrey Seller. "There is a lot more to this app that's on the way, and I'm very excited to share it with all our fans in the coming months", he said in a press release. Now, those with the app will be able to enter with just a tap. "Get ready for what's next!" The app will also soon include an enhanced #EduHam experience - which is a program that provides New York City public school students with the chance to see Hamilton on Broadway and integrate it into the classroom. You can enter to win two tickets for $10 each to see the show now running on a national tour in Los Angeles, or in NY and Chicago at the end of August. Among other features is the #HamCam, which transforms you into a character from the show. It also offers alerts of productions' newly available ticket blocks and houses content written by the cast and creative team.

What's next, according to the release, is updates to include exclusive ticket access, "augmented reality", and interactive karaoke tracks.
