CHICAGO --Christmas is coming, but "Hamilton" is coming first. Show creator Lin-Manuel Miranda is auctioning off two VIP seats to Chicago's opening night, October 19. The winner also gets to attend the Post Show party with the cast and will get to meet Lin-Manuel himself. All proceeds benefit onePulse (hyperlink: http://www.onepulse.com/), the Orlando non-profit set up to assist the families of victims in the Pulse Nightclub shooting. Get your pennies together though, checked, bidding was at $10,000.
