There’s only one day left to see Lin-Manuel Miranda in the role of Alexander Hamilton on Broadway, but if you haven’t secured your ticket already, it could cost you as much as a brand new Lexus Hybrid.

StubHub is the home of the high-priced ticket, $20,000 a piece for a pair of Orchestra Row A seats to Hamilton’s Saturday performance. Those prices rival even the cost to see the show with Hillary Clinton on Tuesday in a special performance.

The Saturday show will also mark the last for original cast members Leslie Odom Jr., and Phillipa Soo, who played Aaron Burr and Eliza Hamilton, respectively.

There are other scalped options for Saturday at slightly more reasonable prices. Ticketmaster has resale options from $1,626 to $4,499 per seat, and there’s a rear mezzanine pair on Craigslist for $2,900 each.

Of course, there’s alway the digital lotto, if you only have $10 to spare.
