Miranda himself is up for three Tonys: for the book, score and his role as lead actor in a musical. Since the show's sold out through next January, the increase-up to $849 from $475-isn't all that newsworthy, especially considering a rear mezzanine seat ticket to a 7 p.m. showing next Tuesday is going for upwards of $2000.

Hamilton is the story of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became a confidant of George Washington's during the Revolutionary War.

The musical is about one of America's founding fathers, Alexander Hamilton and is inspired based on Ron Chernow's 2004 biography about Hamilton. He was killed in a duel by his political rival, Vice President Aaron Burr, at the age of 47.

The show has set new standards on Broadway for the diversity of its cast and the adventurousness of its music, which is driven by hip-hop but also takes in jazz, blues and even Britpop.

The producers of the historic Broadway show "Hamilton" just made their hit a little bit more historic, raising box office prices to a record $849 for premium seating - the highest (non-scalper) price ever for any Broadway show.
