If you missed out on seeing the wildly popular touring show of Hamilton when it came through Cincinnati earlier this year, you'll have another crack at it soon. Today it was announced that the musical will wind back through the Aronoff Center as part of the Broadway in Cincinnati's 2020/2021 season.
"Our first engagement of Hamilton was an unprecedented event in Cincinnati,” said Genevieve Holt, General Manager of Broadway in Cincinnati, in a press release. “Our audiences were thrilled with this exceptional show, and we at Broadway in Cincinnati were eager to bring it back to the Tri-State as soon as possible. We are very proud that we will get to share this remarkable musical with our audiences again in the 20/21 season."
Broadway in Cincinnati subscribers who renew their 2019/2020 subscriptions for the 2020/2021 season will get first access to the tickets.
The dates for Hamilton's next Cincinnati engagement are TBA, as are (of course) ticketing details.
Hamilton's run at the Aronoff in February/March was the hottest ticket in town. Here's what CityBeat's Rick Pender — who declared the Cincinnati staging on par with the original Broadway one — said at the time:
"For Hamilton’s three-week engagement in Cincinnati, (the Aronoff) will be jam-packed. Very few seats remain for some performances if you’re willing to pay the price; you can also take a chance on the daily lottery. But thousands of area theater fans will be there, witnessing the fact that history is happening. During intermission, I overheard at least a half-dozen conversations about American history, with the reoccurring theme of 'I didn’t know that!' That’s one of the wonders of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s miraculous show."
