Distinguished Speaker Series » Jeffrey Seller, Producer of Hamilton

Jeffrey Seller is the lead producer of the Broadway hit musical, Hamilton! Spanning the divide between art, commerce, and digital media, Seller’s popular theater productions of Hamilton, Rent, Avenue Q, and In the Heights have reinvigorated Broadway into the mainstream. The producer will weigh in on what makes a hit, the role of live theater in the digital age, and his work to make American musicals more accessible.

With increasingly expensive Broadway prices, Seller and his co-producer invented Broadway’s groundbreaking rush ticket policy to give young audiences more affordable options for Broadway shows. In June 2016, Hamilton received 11 Tony awards from a record-breaking 16 nominations, including a Best Musical win for Sellers, his fourth Tony Award overall.
