"Hamilton" is set to close Jan. 5 at the CIBC Theatre in Chicago. The musical opened in Chicago at what was then The PrivateBank Theatre on Sept. 27, 2016.
The Chicago show was only the second production of the musical to be mounted outside of New York City. A touring production began in 2017.
"Hamilton," the brainchild of actor/singer/writer Lin-Manuel Miranda, who wrote the book, music and lyrics to the show, tells the story of one of America's Founding Fathers, Alexander Hamilton. It relays the historic tale with a score starring hip-hop, jazz, pop, and other contemporary musical styles and a cast featuring performers with diverse cultural backgrounds.
Still starring as Alexander Hamilton is Miguel Cervantes, who took on the role at the beginning of the Chicago run. Various other actors and actresses have rotated other roles during the show through the years. The Chicago engagement of the production has drawn more than 2.6 million audience members.
