After its Monday Night Grammy Performance and award for Best Musical Theater Album, the country is itching to get their hands on some Hamilton tickets. Luckily, those who were not fortunate enough to secure what has become Broadway’s hottest ticket ever will have more chances as a Hamilton tour will be hitting the road in the fall.
Chicago will be the first city to get Hamilton, beginning September 27, 2016. It will then head to the West Coast for a 21 week run at San Francisco’s SHN Orpheum Theater starting in March 2017 before Los Angeles’ Hollywood Pantages Theater from August 2017 through December 2017. The NYC Broadway production will continue to run during the tour.
The hip-hop musical follows the life and times of Alexander Hamilton, one of our founding fathers who the average American knows very little about, presenting his story in revolutionary fashion. The Show has received critical acclaim and unprecedented advance box office sales. During the Grammy’s Stephen Colbert said the next seat he could get online was for a Sunday matinee in 2018, and he wasn’t kidding.
Producer Jeffrey Seller has stated that his he intends to run replicas of New York’s Hamilton in the other cities. When speaking about the first stop in Chicago he said, “When we come here, it won’t just be a tour. The entire creative team will come here, live here for a month to give this show the same tender loving care they gave it in New York.” Expect Hamilton tickets for all city stops in the tour to sell-out in similar fashion as New York. As always, Rukkus will have Hamilton tickets to all dates. More stops on the tour after Los Angeles are expected to be announced and we will be sure to keep you updated.
