Hamilton in Tempe 2018
THE SHOW IN TEMPE HAS ENDED: Please visit “Hamilton” national US tour page to see other cities.
The legend is coming to Tempe’s ASU Gammage. The showcase of the recent Broadway’s hit; Hamilton starts there on Jan. 30, 2018 and will continue within four weeks.
Even though Hamilton is a “freshman” among the other Broadway musicals, it has already outpaced them in popularity. Theatre lovers consider ticket’s purchase for this show as not the easiest task: they should pay extremely high fees to enter the Broadway. That is why producers of Hamilton arranged a tour across the USA to make musical’s fans from other cities a bit happier. The show will be held in such locations as Seattle, Denver and Tempe. Hurry up and buy your way in – don’t miss the best seats in the hall. Tickets for rumored Hamilton are sold like hot cakes.
Initially, Hamilton was created in 2015 by Lin-Manuel Miranda. 3 years before the forthcoming tour, the musical started its Off-Broadway run. The community was impressed so much that the play earned 11 Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama after its showcase on Broadway and outside the venue. The producer of the show, Lin-Manuel Miranda played Alexander Hamilton but has abandoned the project after a while. Nevertheless, the musical’s popularity continued to grow rapidly as well as the ticket’s price. To visit the show in September, you would pony up $449 as the regular entrance fee and up to thousands for the resale Hamilton ticket.
Chicago opened its own release of Hamilton in this October and launches the national tour on March 10. The starting point is Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco, where the performance will be presented within five following months. In August, the musical visits Los Angeles’ Hollywood Pantages Theatre. Also, you may see the legendary play in Tempe’s Gammage from Jan. 30 to Feb. 25, 2018. Actor Michael Luwoye was appointed to the main role during this tour. He is the second actor who plays Hamilton this year; the other one is Javier Muñoz who changed Lin-Manuel Miranda in the past.
Luwoye has already given an interview to Hamilcast (a popular podcast dedicated to the above-mentioned musical) and shared his thoughts about the upcoming performances. Michael revealed the dates of showcases in Costa Mesa, Denver, Calif and Tempe in his interviews. However, he made a mistake and told that Tempe is situated in Arkansas.
