Hamilton Launches Official App
Broadway hit Hamilton has officially made the leap from stage to smartphone: As Variety reports, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tony- and Pulitzer-winning musical now has its own mobile app, available for download on both iOS and Android devices.
Available in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store, the official “HamApp” includes lyric and fan-art stickers, a themed “HamCam” photo filter (which lets users transform themselves into characters like the Schuyler sisters, or put themselves on a $10 bill), news updates, an exclusive merchandise store, and a portal to the daily #Ham4Ham lottery, so fans can enter to win $10 tickets to Hamilton performances while on the go. As of press time, the portal links users only to the lottery for the national tour in Los Angeles (which kicks off August 11), but lotteries for New York and Chicago shows will be available on the app later in August.
Later iterations of the HamApp will also include karaoke tracks for at-home sing-alongs, augmented reality content, exclusive access to ticket blocks, and more.
“With the roll out of the HamApp, we are setting the stage, but it's just the opening number,” Miranda said in a press release. “There is a lot more to this app that’s on the way, and I'm very excited to share it all with our fans in the coming months. Get ready for what’s next!"
