INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Today is the day! The Broadway musical "Hamilton" opens in Indianapolis Tuesday night.

"Hamilton" is the story of America's Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington's right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and was the new nation’s first Treasury Secretary.

Lin Manuel Miranda's story of Alexander Hamilton first debuted on Broadway in 2015 and has taken musical theater by storm ever since.

In 2016, the show was nominated for 16 Tony Awards — winning 11 of them. The show also won the Grammy Award for best musical theater album, and Lin-Manuel Miranda won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for writing the show.

If you've never made it to New York City, now’s your chance to see it right here at home.

It's going to be playing at the Old National Centre now through Dec. 29.

There is a digital lottery you can enter for $10 tickets.

If you're willing to pay full-price or even more, there are very few tickets left for performances this week.

A spokesperson for the show says you can still find several available tickets for Dec. 20 through the 23, Dec. 26 and Dec. 29 on Ticketmaster here.
