The national touring production of the Tony Award-winning musical Hamilton is coming to the Fox Theatre next month.

Hundreds of fans waited hours on Sunday for a chance to score tickets. The line went from the Fox Theatre, up Peachtree Street and down 3rd Street, but the long wait was worth it to the fans who braved the cold temperatures for a shot at tickets.

"When we started sitting it was 53 degrees and overnight it was 36 degrees," said Jacqueline Chambliss, who waited overnight.

Tickets went on sale at 10 a.m. Sunday morning both online and at the Fox Theatre.

Fans paid anywhere from $80-550 per ticket for a chance to see the musical in Atlanta.

"I wanted to see it on Broadway but never made it to New York so I was like alright this is the next best thing," said Mark Battle.

"I can't stop hearing good things about it," said Carrie Bushman. "The music is amazing."

Hamilton at the Fox Theatre will run from May 22 to June 10.

There will be 24 performances.

To avoid buying counterfeit tickets, the Fox Theatre encourages fans to buy tickets directly from them.
