You know how all those people are paying $1,500 to see Lin-Manuel Miranda rap about the constitution in “Hamilton”? Well no surprise, but investing in one of the most-talked about shows of the past decade has paid off majorly for the show’s producer Jeffrey Seller. According to city records, the producer just bought himself a townhouse at 36 Riverside Drive for $11 million. He and his partner Joshua Lehrer also own a unit down the street at 54 Riverside Drive. Investor Gary Broxmeyer of Fairfield Properties was the seller.
At the moment, the 7,567-square-foot home is a seven-unit apartment building (four studios; two one-bedrooms apartments; and one two-bedroom on the garden floor). It is unclear whether Seller intends to convert the home into a single-family unit; right now, plans for such a conversion have not yet been filed.
In addition to “Hamilton,” Seller also produced Tony-Award-winning musicals including Miranda’s “In the Heights” (which won in 2008), “Rent” (1996) and “Avenue Q” (2003). He and his former business partner Kevin McCollum are also known for starting the rush ticket policy, so that students and other people who can’t afford current ticket prices could still see the show.
