After a short and super successful run at the Public Theater, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s critically acclaimed Hamilton is headed to Broadway. If sales of its off-broadway run are any indication, these tickets will go fast so get your tickets NOW. Lin-Manuel once again works his magic. Inspired by the biography Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow, Hamilton follows the trials, tribulations and triumphs of a gutsy immigrant who through sheer tenacity and gumption helped to shape the very foundation of this country. Alexander Hamilton literally started from the bottom and made it to the top. This is history meets hip-hop. Get your tickets!
