Hamilton Chicago Sets 2016 Opening Dates

June 09, 2016 by Alyssa

Hamilton Chicago

Since opening on Broadway this summer, Hamilton has quickly become one of the most successful musicals in American theater. Fusing hip-hop and American history, this Lin Manuel-Miranda-penned masterpiece has given fans plenty of reasons to see Hamilton on Broadway. Starting in Sept. 2016, though, theater lovers won’t have to trek to New York to see this landmark musical.

Producer Jeffrey Seller confirmed the news on Dec. 8 that a Hamilton Chicago production will be opening late in 2016. The new production of the musical is slated to open on Sept. 27 at the PrivateBank Theatre (formerly known as the Bank of America Theatre). Hamilton Chicago is expected to remain open in the “Windy City” as long as demand for tickets is high.

Seeing as Hamilton’s Broadway run has booked performances more than 10 months in advance, the musical’s Chicago production could remain in the city for a year or more, much like The Book of Mormon before it.

The Hamilton Chicago production will run at the same time as the Broadway production, so a new cast will be needed for the Midwestern edition of the musical. As of Dec. 9, no cast members have been confirmed.

A West Coast version of Hamilton is also reportedly in the works, but the producers have not yet confirmed further details.
