Hot Ticket: Hamilton Headed To Broadway

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s highly-anticipated new musical, Hamilton, is making the leap to Broadway. The musical premiered Off-Broadway this past season at the Public Theater (Artistic Director, Oskar Eustis) where it enjoyed two healthy extensions, before ultimately closing on May 3rd. The Broadway production will once again be produced by the Public Theater and producer Jeffrey Seller (The Last Ship, In the Heights, Avenue Q, Rent). Previews are set to begin July 13th, 2015 with an official opening set for August 3rd, 2015 at Broadway’s Richard Rodgers Theater.hamilton 1

Here is how Hamilton is being billed: “From bastard orphan to Washington’s right hand man, rebel to war hero, loving husband caught in the country’s first sex scandal to Treasury head who made an untrusting world believe in the American economy, Hamilton is an exploration of a political mastermind. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Eliza Hamilton, and lifelong Hamilton friend and foe, Aaron Burr, all attend this revolutionary tale of America’s fiery past told through the sounds of the ever-changing nation we’ve become.”

The most recent Off-Broadway cast featured Carleigh Bettiol (Ensemble); Andrew Chappelle (Swing); Ariana DeBose (Ensemble); Alysha Deslorieux (Swing); Daveed Diggs (Marquis De Lafayette, Thomas Jefferson); Renée Elise Goldsberry (Angelica Schuyler); Sydney James Harcourt (Ensemble); Sasha Hutchings (Ensemble); Christopher Jackson (George Washington); Jonathan Groff (King George); Thayne Jasperson (Ensemble); Jasmine Cephas Jones (Peggy Schuyler, Maria Reynolds); Stephanie Klemons (Swing); Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton); Javier Muñoz (Hamilton Standby); Leslie Odom Jr. (Aaron Burr); Okieriete Onaodowan (Hercules Mulligan, James Madison); Anthony Ramos (John Laurens, Phillip Hamilton); Jon Rua (Ensemble); Phillipa Soo (Eliza Hamilton); Seth Stewart (Ensemble); Betsy Struxness (Ensemble); Ephraim Sykes (Ensemble); and Voltaire Wade-Greene (Swing).
