Who’s Making Money From “Hamilton”

THR breaks it down for you. The Broadway version alone will eventually gross $1 billion, of which $300 million will be profit divided up among initial investors (the show cost $12.5 million to put on Broadway) and creatives. Lin-Manuel Miranda has a 7-percent deal on the profits, plus what he’s paid for starring in the show. The domestic and world tours, plus merchandising and album sales, will eventually gross further billions. On Broadway, you can make a killing but not a living.
