Jeffrey Seller has produced some of the most popular theatrical blockbusters. Four of his productions have won Tony Awards for Best Musical: “Hamilton,” “Rent,” Avenue Q,” and “In the Heights.” And his smash hits “Hamilton” and “Rent” both won the Pulitzer Prize for drama.

But success does have a downside. Tickets for “Hamilton” are notorious for their outrageously high price tag. On secondary markets like StubHub, they go for between $400 and $600.

Seller weighs in on what makes a hit, the future of American musicals and the role of live theater in the digital age.
