Good news for those of us on the West Coast who want to see Hamilton but don’t want to fly across America to do so: Lin-Manuel Miranda’s beloved show is coming to Los Angeles!
The Hollywood Pantages has announced that Hamilton and five other shows are making their Los Angeles premieres at the theater next summer for the 2016-2017 season.
The five other shows coming to the Hollywood Pantages are An American in Paris, The Body Guard, Finding Neverland, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and The King and I. And returning to Hollywood is The Book of Mormon!
Season ticket packages are now available, but group and single tickets for Hamilton will be announced at a later date. The show has been a difficult ticket to nab in New York, so we expect Los Angeles demand to be high once tickets go on sale.
Until you get to see it, you can always listen to the soundtrack again. Or watch some clips from the show below:
Hamilton launched last year and quickly became a Broadway sensation. It’ll open in Chicago this September before launching a tour in 2017. Prior to Los Angeles it’ll be opening its tour in San Francisco.
Said Hollywood Pantages General Manager Martin Wiviott, “The exceptional shows we have in store for next season…is the type of lineup that reminds us all why we LOVE theatre. We come together as a community of arts lovers, certainly for the amazing entertainment…but largely because we know that we are witnessing something important unfolding right before our eyes – stories reminding us all about who we are, the important journeys in our lives…and all the important moments in between. Featuring stories from classic music-makers like Rodgers & Hammerstein and George & Ira Gershwin…to today’s theatrical trailblazers, such as Lin-Manuel Miranda, director Diane Paulus & John Cameron Mitchell…we are pleased to invite you to join us when the lights go down and the curtain goes up on a memorable and momentous theatrical journey.”
