Lin-Manuel Miranda is taking his hit Broadway musical out west…
Hamilton, the 36-year-old Puerto Rican composer, lyricist, librettist, rapper, and actor’s rap-infused musical about the American Revolution and the nation’s first Treasury secretary, will have a run beginning in the late summer of 2017 at the Hollywood Pantages.
The theater is operated by the Nederlander Organization, which also owns the Richard Rodgers Theatre on Broadway, where the show has become this season’s most coveted ticket.
In anticipation of a hit, the four-month-plus Hollywood run is scheduled from August 11 through the end of the year, concluding a season that will feature two other Nederlander-based hits: An American In Paris (March 22 – April 9, 2017), currently at the Palace Theatre and Finding Neverland (February 21 – March 12, 2017), currently at the Lunt-Fontanne.
Completing the 13-month season that begins next November are the Tony-winning revivals of Hedwig And The Angry Inch (November 1-27, 2016) and The King And I (December 13 – January 21, 2017) plus the musical adaptation of The Bodyguard (May 2 – 21, 2017), which had its premiere in London and hasn’t been seen on Broadway, and a return engagement of The Book Of Mormon (May 30 – July 9, 2017).
