Get ready, Lincoln! The national tour of the Broadway sensation ‘Hamilton’ is set to make a grand entrance at the Lied Center for Performing Arts. This 16-show engagement, running from August 2 to 13, 2023, brings the riveting life story of one of America’s founding fathers to the stage in an unprecedented way. 🎟️
The Birth of ‘Hamilton’
What began as an 818-page biography of Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow, casually picked up by Lin-Manuel Miranda in an airport bookstore, evolved into a hip-hop musical sensation over a span of seven years. The result? A cultural masterpiece that has enthralled audiences globally.
The Craftsmanship Behind the Scenes
Creating ‘Hamilton’ is a monumental task. It requires over 8,000 man-hours to engineer, build, paint, and automate the touring set, including its iconic turntable stage. With more than 50 paper props, over 500 lighting instruments, and nearly 1,100 light cues in a single show, the production is a testament to theatrical innovation.
The Crew Behind the Magic
‘Hamilton’ is a product of teamwork. From the 25 backstage crew members to the full-time stitchers and pressers, the show’s success is a testament to the dedication of over 100 committed individuals. And let’s not forget the 11 semitrailers that transport the magic of ‘Hamilton’ from city to city.
A Legacy of Triumph
Since its Broadway debut in 2015, ‘Hamilton’ has been a powerhouse. Garnering 11 Tony Awards from a record-breaking 16 nominations, a Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and eight Drama Desk Awards, the show has grossed over $854 million from its Broadway performances alone.
