Hamilton: An American Musical
Begins September 27, 2016, at the CIBC Theatre (18 W. Monroe)
Hamilton is the story of America's Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington's right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and was the new nation's first Treasury Secretary. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B, and Broadway, Hamilton is the story of America then, told by America now.
September 11 - October 14, 2018, at the Cadillac Palace Theatre
A new comedy musical is coming to Chicago: TOOTSIE.
It’s the story of a talented, but difficult-to-work-with actor who will do anything to land the role of a lifetime—including adopting a new persona as Dorothy Michaels.
Starring Tony® nominee Santino Fontana (Cinderella, the film Frozen), this new production features a score by Tony winner David Yazbek (The Band’s Visit, The Full Monty), a book by Robert Horn (13, Dame Edna Back with a Vengeance), choreography by Tony nominee Denis Jones (Holiday Inn, Honeymoon in Vegas), and direction by eight-time Tony nominee and Olivier Award winner Scott Ellis (She Loves Me, On The Twentieth Century).
TOOTSIE will play a pre-Broadway engagement at the Cadillac Palace Theatre from September 11 - October 14. TOOTSIE will go to Broadway in Spring 2019.
