“More people have seen Hamilton in Chicago than any other city, including New York,” said producer Jeffrey Seller. “Chicago has been a cornerstone of our mission to make Hamilton as accessible to as many people as possible.
Seller added that the Hamilton team—including fellow producers Sander Jacobs, Jill Furman and The Public Theater—have loved their time in Chicago.
“You can bet that we’ll be back.”
During its Chicago engagement from September 2016 to January 2020, Hamilton will have been attended by more than 2.6 million people—a number nearly equal to the population of the city itself. More than 32,000 Chicago public school students and teachers have also participated in Hamilton‘s singular, nationwide American history education program—popularly known as EduHam—since the musical’s arrival in Chicago.
With book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Hamilton is directed by Thomas Kail and choreographed by Andy Blankenbuehler, with music direction/orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire. Hamilton is based on Ron Chernow’s biography of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton and won 11 Tony Awards in 2016, including Best Musical, Score, Book of a Musical, Direction of a Musical, Choreography and Orchestrations. Additionally, Lin-Manuel Miranda received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for Hamilton.
Groups can now also book Hamilton: The Museum Exhibition, inspired by the revolutionary musical. Situated on Chicago’s Northerly Island, Hamilton: The Museum Exhibition features interactive games and displays, lifelike projections, full-scale statues, and Instagram-worthy art installations. The Exhibition takes student groups deeper into Alexander Hamilton’s life as it chronicles the American Revolution and the creation of the United States of America.
