NORFOLK, Va. - Between the long lines and an early wake-up call, many looked happy for the opportunity to get tickets for "Hamilton," the hit Broadway show that's coming to Norfolk from December 10-29.

Many in the lines Friday morning were drinking coffee, eating breakfast, plus relaxing and reading. Some even looked to be working while in the long line.

One woman we spoke to said she already had tickets but wanted to hang out with her friend, who needed to get tickets for herself.

Tickets for the Chrysler Hall shows went on sale in person at the box office at 8 a.m., with online tickets through and going on sale at 10 a.m.

There will be a lottery for 40 $10 seats for all performances. Details will be announced closer to the engagement.

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.
