As of this writing, you could snag two good seats to tomorrow’s matinee for $861.62 each in Row P (seats 103-104) or economize in the fifth row of the mezzanine for $484.88 each.

But you can also listen to the original cast album, free, just-released made available here on NPR.

Three things the next president should do are:

  1. Amend the Affordable Care Act to allow Medicare and Medicaid to negotiate drug prices and direct the FDA to take a harder line on approvals and pricing (and/or make it easier for private insurers to piggyback on the prices Medicare and Medicaid negotiate).  Why should a 62-year-old generic drug suddenly be hiked from $13.50 a pill to $750?  There are many outrageous examples like this; but this one is so egregious, it just might turn into one of those, “at long last, have you no sense of decency” moments that turn the tide.
  2. Ramp up the efforts, already underway, to reform our criminal justice system — see, for example, The Atlantic‘s cover story this month.
  3. Keep Hamilton on the $10 bill and replace Jackson with a woman in 2020.  (And not Ben Carson’s mom or Mike Huckabee’s wife, either — this one).
