Hamilton Just Announced a National Tour—so You Might Actually Get to See It Now!
As every musical theatre aficionado knows already, Hamilton is the historic hip-hop sensation that has captured the hearts and ears of fans across the internet. Getting a ticket is hard, but the soundtrack’s on Spotify, and most have had to settle for that. Your prayers have been answered today, Hamilton fandom: The show has a national tour in the works!
Hamilton already announced an upcoming stint in Chicago, starting this September 27th at the PrivateBank Theater. Word on the street had it that other cities could end up on the docket as well. As of today, we now know that the show will tour in San Francisco at the SHN Orpheum Theater in March 2017, and then in Los Angeles’ Hollywood Pantages Theater from August 11 to December 30, 2017. After that, the show plans to tour other cities as well.
The New York production plans to run indefinitely in the interim, and the producers plan to explore a production in London—so, yes, that’s right, there are auditions happening across the planet now for this show. Polish up those resumes, actors!!
The only downside? 2017 sounds so incredibly far away, and Boston still isn’t on the list of planned cities (that’s where I live, folks). I might not get to see Hamilton for a while yet. But I can be patient! It’s going to be worth it!
