Lin-Manuel Miranda is taking his show on the road…
Broadway juggernaut Hamilton, created and starring the 35-year-old Puerto Rican composer/lyricist and actor, will begin performances on September 27, 2016, at the PrivateBank Theatre (formerly the Bank Of America Theatre), leading off its Broadway In Chicago subscription season.
The show was inspired by the 2004 biography Alexander Hamilton by historian Ron Chernow.
Broadway in Chicago is a 15-year-old program of the Nederlander Organization, which also owns Hamilton‘s Broadway venue, the Richard Rodgers Theatre.
BIC books shows for five Chicago theaters, including the Oriental and Cadillac Palace, along with the PrivateBank. Flexibility in programming the varied venues will allow for the run of Hamilton to be open-ended.
Additionally, a London production of Hamilton is in the works and will be announced shortly.
