You may have no choice but to throw away your shot after hearing this…
It's no secret that Hamilton is already a Broadway classic after winning 11 of its record-setting 16 Tony Award nominations, but the Alexander Hamilton hype train may have just officially gone off the rails.
That's because tickets for Lin-Manuel Miranda, Phillipa Soo, and Leslie Odom, Jr.'s final performance are selling for upwards of $20,000!!!
Seriously — the trio are set to take their final bows this Saturday, and if you had any hope of seeing them in action one last time, you better be willing to fork over some serious cash on StubHub.

While we don't blame anyone for wanting to take part in the historic musical… we can't imagine any 3-hour engagement being worth the price of an affordable mid-sized sedan.
How much would U pay to see LMM LIVE onstage??

Talk about baby momma drama.
On Friday, it was revealed that American Idol alum Constantine Maroulis' baby momma Angel Reed was arrested after an innocent drop by to pick up their five year old turned physical. Oh no!
The Rock of Ages alum defends she was simply picking up her daughter from Constantine's house when the 40-year-old started taunting by recording videos of her on his phone. The annoyance obviously escalated as the twosome got into a heated argument which became physical.
Reportedly, Angel made a move to
But soon, the mastermind will take his final curtain call in playing the titular character.
On Thursday, the creator and star of the Broadway hit announced he will depart the show on July 9!
The news was confirmed in a press release, where it was also revealed that Miranda's alternate Javier Muñoz will be taking over as Alexander Hamilton starting July 11.
But just because the OG Alexander will be departing the show doesn't mean he'll be ancient history!
When asked after Sunday's Tonys about leaving the musical, Miranda said he had plans to "drop in" on the show to reprise his role sometime down the line, explaining:
Over the weekend, the U.S. suffered one of the biggest terror attacks and on Monday night, late night hosts Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, Conan O'Brien, and Seth Meyers all took a moment to address the tragic events.
While the late night shows are generally all about silliness, celebrity interviews, and poking fun at the news, each comedian decided to address the terrible incident in their own way.
James Corden talked about Orlando during the Tony Awards, but last night Jimmy, Stephen, Conan, and Seth decided to touch on viewpoints of the shooting from how to tell their kids, to accepting others, and getting rid of guns — and even mentioning how to help the victims!
Ch-ch-check out all the AH-Mazing tributes from the incredible late night hosts last night (below)!
