If you don't have tickets, you just don't have tickets. 

The Broadway hit musical Hamilton is cracking down on ticket resellers.

The New York Times reports that the producers of Hamilton will be capping the number of tickets that can be purchased per person.

Currently “there is a fourteen ticket limit per person for performances within a seven-day period,” according to the Ticketmaster website.

“When people exceed the limits, we refund them, and we pooled all the refunds and put them on sale,” explained Jeffrey Seller, the show’s lead producer.

And it doesn’t end there. The producers announced via Twitter new rules for people waiting in line for tickets.

“There are brokers who hire people to stand in line for [tickets] – they set up tents, they sit in chairs with sleeping bags – and we don’t want a tent city that encourages brokers to resell,” Seller tells The New York Times. “We want to ensure that if anyone has perseverance, they are a beneficiary of the line. But this camping out has to stop, because it has crossed over into public nuisance.”

No sitters, no scalpers. Enjoy the show.
