The national touring company of the Broadway musical Hamilton has added two more cities to its planned itinerary, San Diego, CA, and Charlotte, NC, at dates TBA in the 2017-18 season.
As previously announced, Hamilton will stop at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.
Specific engagement dates and information on how to purchase group and single tickets will be announced at a later date.
The Kennedy Center recommends that the best way to guarantee tickets to Hamilton is to purchase a full season subscription for the 2016-17 theatre season. New or renewing subscribers of the 2016–17 theatre season will be first in line for seats in the 2017–18 Broadway series, which includes tickets to the premiere Washington, DC, engagement of Hamilton. 2016-17 theatre subscriptions are available for purchase at kennedy-center.org/subscribe.
Hamilton is the winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and is up for a record-breaking 16 Tony Award nominations, including Best Musical. With book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler and musical direction and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, Hamilton is based on Ron Chernow’s biography of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton.
Casting for the national tour has not yet been announced, but the Broadway creative team will recreate designs for the tour.
The national touring company will launch at San Francisco's SHN Orpheum Theatre in March 2017, where it will play for 21 weeks before moving on to the Hollywood Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles August 11-December 30.
