Hamilton coming to Chicago
The blockbuster Broadway musical HAMILTON - with book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda - will play its first engagement outside New York this fall in Chicago. Performances begin September 27, 2016, at Broadway In Chicago's newly named The PrivateBank Theatre (formerly the Bank Of America Theatre).
With book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, directed by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler and musical direction and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, HAMILTON is based on Ron Chernow's biography of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. A thoroughly inventive, wildly entertaining musical about the birth of our nation - with a score that blends hip-hop, pop, blues, jazz and Broadway -HAMILTON opened on Broadway earlier this year to enthusiastic reception from critics and audiences of all ages.
The musical made its Off-Broadway debut at The Public Theater in February 2015, where its engagement was sold out. The show transferred to Broadway that summer, opening on August 6, 2015 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. On Broadway, it has received enthusiastic critical acclaim and unprecedented advance box office sales.
Broadway In Chicago and The PrivateBank have a new long-run strategic partnership that will rename what many refer to as a crown jewel of the Chicago Theatre District, at 18 W. Monroe, to The Private Bank Theatre. The theatre was formerly known as the Bank Of America Theatre (and the LaSalle Bank Theatre, and the Shubert Theatre and the Majestic Theatre). Beginning with the production of CABARET, on Tuesday, February 9, the theatre will transform with a new marquee and signage to unveil The Private Bank Theatre. At a press conference on December 8, 2015, Broadway In Chicago and The PrivateBank announced this dynamic partnership, a partnership that is committed to bring the best of Broadway to our Chicago Theatre District including the breathtaking announcement of Broadway's biggest hit, HAMILTON, which will make The Private Bank Theatre its new home beginning in September of 2016.
