Playhouse Square welcoming ‘Hamilton’ back for second big Cleveland stint

This is a real #ICYMI at this point, but, in case you missed it, “Hamilton” is returning to Cleveland.

Playhouse Square recently announced a six-week engagement that will take over downtown for the first half of fall.

A Huntington Featured Performance, “Hamilton” will play Sept. 22 through Nov. 1.

“My absolute favorite question that people ask me is will ‘Hamilton’ ever come back?” says Gina Vernaci, Playhouse Square president and CEO, in the news release. “Yes! For the rest of our lives ‘Hamilton’ will be coming back! We were one of the first cities to see it and one of the first cities to get the return for the most in-demand show of a generation.”

Here’s some background on the show from the release:

Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway, HAMILTON has taken the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theatre—a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics, and education. With book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, HAMILTON is based on Ron Chernow’s acclaimed biography. It has won Tony, Grammy, and Olivier Awards, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and an unprecedented special citation from the Kennedy Center Honors.
