‘Hamilton’ is coming to South Florida. Here’s the best way to nab tickets.

UPDATE: Your first shot at buying tickets has arrived. Tickets go on sale Friday, Jan. 26.

Do you want the good news or the bad news first?

OK, let’s start with good: “Hamilton” is coming to South Florida. The bad? You’re going to have to wait for it. The national touring company of the Tony Award-and-Pulitzer-Prize-winning musical won’t hit the Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale until the 2018/2019 season.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, accompanied by composer Alex Lacamoire, perform at the White House an early version of what became the musical 'Hamilton.'

In the meantime, though, Broadway Across America has announced its 2017/2018 lineup at the Broward Center, and the best way to nab “Hamilton” tickets is to purchase a season subscription. Subscribers who renew for the 2018/19 season will be able to guarantee “Hamilton” tickets before tickets go on sale to the general public.

In other words, if you say no to this, you may find yourself helpless come sale time.

Miami's Alex Lacamoire overcame hearing loss to help write music to the Tony Award-winning ‘Hamilton,’ one of the biggest hits in Broadway history.

The 2017/2018 lineup includes old favorites and new-to-South-Florida shows:

▪ “The Sound of Music,” Oct. 10-22

▪ “Love Never Dies” (the sequel to “The Phantom of the Opera”), Nov. 7-19

▪ “School of Rock,” Dec. 12-24

▪ “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder,” Jan. 9-21, 2018

▪ “Waitress,” April 11-22

▪ “Jersey Boys,” May 8-20

Not part of the subscription package are two other shows:

▪ “Riverdance,” Jan. 5-7

▪ “Wicked,” Feb. 14-March 4
