SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Tickets went on sale this morning for the hottest act coming to San Diego.

One of those in line was Margurite McCurley-Jenkins, waiting for her chance to grab tickets to the Broadway hit, Hamilton. She and her mom got in line around 9:40 a.m.

"When I saw the line, I didn't think it was that long, but didn't take into consideration how long everybody would take to get their tickets," McCurley-Jenkins said.

"It feels great, especially after 4.5 hours," McCurley-Jenkins said after finally getting her tickets.

Not everyone waited that long, Stephanie Roman only waited two hours, but that's because she ended up taking her cousin's spot.

"He came down at 9 a.m., I took his place at 11 and I just purchased tickets at 1 p.m.," Roman said.

Roman said she's not even going to the show, but says she scored him good tickets.

"I said it would be great if the tickets would be on a Sunday, and she said great I have something for Sunday, these are great seats all together either evening or matinee," Roman said.

Prices start at $75 but can go as high as $595. There are 28 scheduled performances.

If you miss out you can try the lottery Hamilton is holding before each show where 35 fans have a chance to buy $10 orchestra seats.

Those details will be released closer to the show opening in January.
