Hamilton will take the stage at Toronto's The Princess of Wales Theatre February 22, 2023–May 14, 2023 in a return to the Canadian city. The musical's "And Peggy" North American tour company, one of three companies touring the continent, will play the engagement.
“As we all know, the show’s original Toronto run was cut short by the pandemic in March 2020, when it only was able to play four weeks of its two-and-a-half-month scheduled run," says theatre owner David Mirvish in a statement. "We had two entire years without any live theatre in Toronto, so to be able to welcome this show back is truly a very significant and meaningful announcement that speaks loudly of theatre’s triumphant reemergence from what has been called the 'great intermission.'"
Currently starring in the company are Darnell Abraham, Brandon Louis Armstrong, Rebecca E. Covington, Marja Harmon, Rick Negron, Paris Nix, Morgan Anita Wood, Deaundre' Woods, Jared Howelton, Donald Webber, Jr., Adam Ali-Perez, Amanda Braun, Taylor Broadard, Yossi Chaikin, Milika Cherée, Emma Claye, Amanda Clement, Eean S. Cochran, Ixchel Cuellar, Tré Frazier, Ellis C. Dawson III, Hayley Dorling, Alex Dreschke, Daniel Gaymon, Jordana Grolnick, Alex Larson, Tiffany Mellard, Kevin Murakami, Chloe Nadon-Enriquez, Julian Ramos, Elijah Reyes, Manuel Stark Santos, Justin Showell, Alex Swift, Emily Tate, Charlotte Mary Wen, and Christopher Henry Young.
History meets hip-hop in the musical which follows the story of America's founding fathers with a focus on the life of Alexander Hamilton from childhood and the Revolutionary War to becoming a politician who dies at the hands of his political rival Aaron Burr.
Hamilton features a book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire.
