Starting Sunday, there will be a lottery for $10 tickets. Joan Marcus

In case you hadn't heard, Hamilton is coming to Seattle next week. Most tickets are already sold out, and the few that are left are upwards of $300. But if you're not willing to shell out hundreds of dollars but you still want to see the wildly popular show, it's not too late. The Paramount just announced the #Ham4Ham lottery, which will offer 40 orchestra seats for each performance, priced at $10 each.

The lottery for the first show (on Tuesday, February 6) opens this Sunday, February 4, at 11 a.m. Lotteries for the remaining performances (through March 18) will begin two days prior to each one.
