CLEVELAND — If you missed seeing Hamilton when it was in Cleveland several years ago, here’s your chance to finally see it in person!
Playhouse Square announced Tuesday morning that the national tour of the Broadway musical Hamilton is coming back to Cleveland for six weeks at the KeyBank State Theatre from Dec. 6 through Jan. 15.
Tickets for the 48 Cleveland performances will go up for sale in late summer. More details will be announced at a later date.
“Hamilton is the story of America then, told by America now,” according to officials with Playhouse Square. “Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway, Hamilton has taken the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theatre -- a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics and education. With book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, Hamilton is based on Ron Chernow’s acclaimed biography.”
Hamilton has won Tony, Grammy and Olivier Awards along with the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It was also recognized with the special citation from the Kennedy Center Honors, according to Playhouse Square.
Additionally, Playhouse Square’s new 2022-23 KeyBank Broadway Series lineup will be revealed next week.
“While Hamilton will not be a part of the KeyBank Broadway Series, season ticket holders will receive priority access to purchase tickets to Hamilton,” according to Playhouse Square officials.
