The world was wide enough for a second national tour of Hamilton.
Producer Jeffrey Seller announced that Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hit Broadway musical will open in February 2018 at Seattle’s Paramount Theater for a six-week limited engagement before touring North America. The production will make stops in Portland, Salt Lake City, Costa Mesa, Las Vegas, Des Moines, Cleveland and Minneapolis.
The hip-hop musical about America’s founding fathers won 11 Tony Awards in 2016. Since Hamilton opened on Broadway in 2015, a resident production opened (and has remained sold-out) in Chicago, with another beginning performances in November in London. A first national tour began performances in San Francisco last week and will continue on to Los Angeles, playing the Hollywood Pantages Theatre from Aug. 11.
