Lin-Manuel Miranda's Off-Broadway Hamilton finally makes its way to Broadway!
Show Summary - Hamilton
Following a critically acclaimed run at the prestigious off-broadway venue The Public Theater, Hamilton comes to Broadway’s Richard Rodgers Theatre in a buzz of excitement. With book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda (In the Heights, Bring It On: the Musical), Hamilton tells the story of America’s founding fathers including Alexander Hamilton, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson. However, in an unusual take on the founding story of the United States, Miranda focuses on the gentlemen in terms of their roles as new immigrants, and to highlight this, black and Latino actors are unconventionally cast in the roles. Therefore, Hamilton is one of the most exciting new musicals to arrive on Broadway in recent years. It innovates not only in terms of the content of the story, but also in terms of the form of the storytelling. It is rare for such a novel creation to be fully realized on Broadway, which can sometimes tend towards the overly commercial, but here is an instance of true art meeting commerce. On top of this, the show was developed at the Public Theater (producer of Shakespeare in the Park), which prides itself on thorough artistic development and true devotion to quality. For all of thes e reasons, Hamilton is sure to be an engaging and enlivening theatrical experience that can’t be missed.

What Is Hamilton Like? Directed by Thomas Kail (In the Heights, Magic/Bird, Lombardi) and choreographed by Andy Blankenbuehler (In the Heights, Annie, Bring It On: the Musical), Hamilton earned the Edgerton Foundation New American Plays Award and was a hit production at the downtown Public Theater. Hamilton focuses on the story of Alexander Hamilton, who was the right-hand man to George Washington, a war hero, and the head of the Treasury during a tough time for the American economy. But besides this, Hamilton was an orphan born out of wedlock, a rebel fighter, and the victim of the nation’s first sex scandal. While referencing the diversity in present day America along with the struggles of contemporary immigrants seeking equality in society, Hamilton is an inspirational story about speaking your mind and fighting for your beliefs.
Is Hamilton Good for Kids? The show is most appropriate for children over the age of 10. Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.
Who Is Leaving Hamilton? Who Is Staying? Rumors of some cast members leaving Hamilton have all turned out to be true. After the 70th Annual Tony Awards, Lin-Manuel Miranda announced that his last performance with the Broadway cast would be July 9, 2016. Shortly after, he also announced that Javier Muñoz (Miranda's standby alternate) would be taking over on July 11, 2016. Later, it was also announced that Phillipa Soo, who played Alexander Hamilton's wife would also be leaving the show on July 9th, 2016 to play the title role in Amélie The Musical, in the 2016-2017 Broadway season. The departures don't stop there; on the days leading up to the Tony Awards, Leslie Odom Jr. (plays Hamilton's enemy Aaron Burr) released his first solo album, Leslie Odom Jr. Again, 11 Tony Award wins and several days later, Odom announced his leaving of the show also on July 9th. This announcement weighs more on Odom's pursuit of a solo music career rather than bad blood with the show's casting director.
Chicago and London Productions: The upcoming Chicago production of Hamilton is located at The PrivateBank Theatre consequently booting long-running The Book of Mormon out. Unfortunately, Lin-Manuel MIranda leads the London cast which occupies the Victoria Palace Theatre, since its most recent tenant Billy Elliot vacated the building in April 2016.
