Michael Erin is a former U.S. Armed Forces Captain and current chief of staff and director of operations for the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance. Among other interests, Michael Erin is a fan of opera and theater.
Hamilton, a sung-through hip-hop opera, became a Broadway hit in the past year, so much so that it set the record for most money earned in a single week. After pulling in $2.45 million the week prior, Hamilton's gate revenue for the week ending Nov. 27 was $3.3 million, breaking the record previously held by Wicked, which pulled in $3.2 million during a nine-performance week in 2013.
The Tony Award-winning musical also broke the record for most expensive premium ticket offered by a Broadway box office by charging $988. By doing so, Hamilton needed only eight performances to reach the $3.3 million total. The previous ticket price high was held by Barry Manilow on Broadway, which charged $700 for premium tickets in 2013.
Michael Erin currently serves as the global initiatives manager for the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance.
