The blockbuster Broadway production of “Hamilton” is coming to San Francisco. The critically acclaimed musical about the life of Alexander Hamilton, one of America’s founding fathers and the first Secretary of the Treasury, by Grammy and Tony Award winning playwright and composer Lin-Manuel Miranda, has been a raging box office success drawing sold out crowds since it’s off-Broadway debut in February 2015.

Transferred to the Richard Rogers Theatre on Broadway later that summer, “Hamilton” achieved a record-setting 16 Tony nominations in 2016, winning 11 including Best Musical. Also highly praised for it’s integrated casting featuring the depiction of many white historical figures by Hispanic and black actors, the show has received widespread praise for it’s depiction of America as the melting pot it is today, as opposed to the lily white characterization that the turn of the 19th century would have required.

Bay Area performances will run March 10th thru August 5th at the SHN Orpheum Theatre and are available at https://www.hamilton.shnsf.com .
