Why See ?

CHICAGO'S OWN BROADWAY SENSATION!

Lin-Manuel Miranda's Pulitzer Prize-winner returns to Chicago! Experience the energy of Hamilton all over again. It's a rollicking historical epic, equal parts Sondheim and Notorious B.I.G. Written by Tony, Grammy and Emmy Award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda, Hamilton is a vital piece of American culture, tearing up the musical theatre rulebook with a cast of ethnically diverse actors in the roles of the Founding Fathers. The story centers on Alexander Hamilton, one of our most important (and colorful) characters, who rose from his humble orphaned beginnings to play a major role in making America the country it is today.

Hamilton made its New York debut Off-Broadway at the Public Theater in 2015, where it was met with universal acclaim and was extended three times due to public demand. It lost none of its potency in the subsequent Broadway transfer, with Ben Brantley of the New York Times writing it was "changing the language of musicals". In 2016, It was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and scooped 11 Tony Awards. In 2018, it swept up the Olivier Awards bagging seven of their recording breaking 11 nominations!


WHAT IS HAMILTON ABOUT?

One of the Founding Fathers, Alexander Hamilton's story is an extraordinary one. Born out of wedlock in the West Indies, and orphaned by the time he was 11, he arrived in New Jersey in 1772 to begin his grammar school education. From there he played a major role in the American revolutionary war, rising through the ranks to become an aide to George Washington. But that was only the beginning of the great man's story, with the proceeding chapters in his life taking in everything from sex scandals, fatal duels and the creation of the American Constitution.

DID YOU KNOW?

Hamilton didn't just conquer the stage, it took over the airwaves too! Its Grammy nominated Cast Recording was the highest charting album of its kind since 1963!

What we thought

brilliant UNFORGETTABLE Game-changing

Hamilton truly is an American musical for every American

My turn to experience this theatrical tour de force came a few weeks into the Chicago run... But how does one even start to review a musical so iconic it's already spawned its very own Off-Broadway satire show.
