"I'll bet when you bought your seats they didn't even list a category called regular seats for 499."
True, but that's kind of my point. This show didn't open it's box office, and set out to preclude ticketbuyers (like me) who can only pay something well under $100. I'll never quibble with anyone who bristles at "Premium" seats. But I've seen all of the hits in the last two years for $59 - $99, including "Hamilton." I'm just suggesting that it being a savvy consumer is part of being a theatergoer in New York City.
