Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda will appear in conversation with Chicago Tribune theatre critic Chris Jones September 23 at the Lyric Opera.

According to the Tribune, the evening will cover “Miranda’s theatrical upbringings, the path to his first Tony winner, In the Heights, and, of course, the process of creating Hamilton, the remixed Founding Fathers musical about Alexander Hamilton—an immigrant who went on to become the nation’s first treasury secretary.”

The in-conversation event, presented by the Chicago Humanities Festival and the Chicago Tribune, will be held from 6-7 PM and feature live open captions.

Tickets for the evening will go on sale to Humanities Festival members and Tribune subscribers August 31 at 10 AM and will be available to the general public September 6 at 10 AM. Member tickets are $32, with public tickets at $40 and student and teacher tickets at $10.

The Lyric Opera of Chicago is located at 20 N. Upper Wacker Drive in Chicago, IL. For more information and tickets, click here.

Chicago performances of Hamilton, starring Tony winner Karen Olivo, begin September 27 at The PrivateBank Theatre. Click here to read about the cast, and for more information, visit
