CLEVELAND, Ohio — If you didn’t catch “Hamilton” the last time he was in Cleveland, don’t throw your shot to see him this time around.
The Lin-Manuel Miranda sensation returns to the KeyBank State Theater in Playhouse Square for a six-week run from December 6 to January 15. The show, which won the Tony for Best Musical in 2016, last performed in Cleveland in 2018. Scheduled for fall 2020 was scrapped due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Tickets for the show will go on sale at a late summer date to be announced. The musical is not part of Playhouse Square’s upcoming KeyBank Broadway series, which will be unveiled next week. But season ticket holders will have priority to purchase “Hamilton” tickets.
For the uninitiated, the show tells the reimagined story of the first U.S. Treasury Secretary and George Washington’s right-hand man, Alexander Hamilton. The musical features a diverse cast and an infectious hip-hop soundtrack performed at a blistering 144 words per minute. Popular songs include “My Shot”, “Satisfied”, “The Room Where It Happens”, and “You’ll Be Back”. A filmed version of the stage show aired by Disney+ won an Emmy for Outstanding Variety Special.
