Lin-Manuel Miranda, his wife Vanessa Nadal, and the online platform Prizeo are offering the chance for one fan and a guest to attend the West End opening night of Miranda's Pulitzer Prize-winning Hamilton December 21.
Those interested can make a donation to the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and U.K.-based nonprofit 10:10 at prizeo.com/hamilton. For $10, donors will receive 100 entries for the opportunity to join the opening-night celebration in London’s West End, including two VIP tickets to the performance at the Victoria Palace Theatre, two tickets to the after-party, a meet-and-greet and photo with Miranda, roundtrip airfare, and hotel accommodation for two at the five-star Hyatt Regency London–The Churchill.
The Prizeo campaign closes December 6.
Miranda and his wife announced the campaign with a video in partnership with NRDC and 10:10. Watch it here: prizeo.com/hamilton.
“With Hamilton’s first international production, we think it is appropriate to tackle an issue that affects the international community: climate change,” Miranda said.
Nadal continued, “Yes, climate change is real. The U.S. federal government just this month released a comprehensive scientific report concluding that humans are the major cause of global temperature rise. And we see that humans around the world are paying the cost with extreme weather events and resulting devastation. We want to bring awareness and help slow the tide.”
NRDC, an international environmental nonprofit working to safeguard the earth, is at the forefront of the international fight against climate change.
“From hurricanes to drought, wildfires to heat waves—no one, and nowhere, will be untouched by the impacts of climate change,” said NRDC President Rhea Suh. “Despite the Trump administration’s best efforts, the international community is responding. We must continue to work together to usher in a brighter, more prosperous tomorrow for our children and for future generations.”
In honor of the Hamilton opening in London, a portion of the funds will support 10:10, a London-based organization, which brings people together to take positive, practical action on climate change, at home, work, school or in their community.
