"Hamilton" is coming to Boston! And the Massachusetts Bar Association has a special opportunity for you to see the show.
We are offering our members a way to take part in a once-in-a-lifetime event while helping a great cause for people in real need of legal assistance.
The MBA -- together with the Massachusetts Bar Foundation and the Massachusetts Association of Hispanic Attorneys -- is holding a fundraiser to help the Puerto Rican victims of last fall’s Hurricane Maria. “Hamilton’s” creator and original star, Lin-Manuel Miranda, arranged for us to buy 100 orchestra tickets for the Friday, Oct. 12 performance of the Broadway smash hit at the Boston Opera House.
The event’s goal is to raise $150,000 for legal assistance to hurricane victims both in Puerto Rico and in Massachusetts. The MBA, MBF and MAHA will donate half the net proceeds to legal services for Puerto Ricans who have relocated to Massachusetts, and the other half of the net proceeds will go to legal assistance for victims who remained in Puerto Rico.
The program for this special event includes a pre-show cocktail reception inside the Opera House with a personalized video welcome to our group from Lin-Manuel himself. His father, Luis Miranda, will talk to our group and engage in a Q&A session during the pre-show private function. Lin-Manuel has authorized the playing of a special video recording of a duet he did with the star of “Dear Evan Hansen.” It will be an excellent event for a great cause and a night that will long be remembered by all.
Starting Friday, Sept. 7, tickets to the show will be offered online on a first come, first served basis, with a limit of two tickets per person. Not only will you have your seats to the show, you will also be making a significant contribution to help hurricane victims who are still struggling to rebuild their lives. A copy of the seating map of the Boston Opera House, which shows where the seats are located, is here. An email will be sent to all MBA members with more details on how to purchase the tickets on Sept. 7.
Don’t throw away your shot! Be in the room where it happens! See you at the show!
