This summer, Washington, D.C. welcomes the revolutionary, inventive, ground-breaking, entertaining, and in-every-other-way superlative cast of Hamilton as they bring their incredible talents to the Kennedy Center for a run of performances through September 16. See what enthralled audiences around the country have raved about and take an incredible journey through our nation’s history as Lin Manuel-Miranda’s record-setting play uses hip-hop, soul, and R&B to tell the story of Alexander Hamilton and our nation’s Founding Fathers.
The Play is the Thing
Since its debut in February 2015 on Broadway, Hamilton has shattered records and blown minds, with no signs of slowing down. The play received a record 16 Tony Award nominations, scoring 11 wins for its incredible performances, breathtaking stage design, intricate costumes, and a pulse-pounding score. After setting every Broadway record for attendance and ticket sales imaginable, Hamilton is now on its second U.S. tour and is finally arriving at the venue that was made to host it: the historic, iconic, and legendary- The Kennedy Center.
The life and times of Alexander Hamilton read like something out of a Hollywood movie (and indeed an adaption of the stage play is in the works), and Manuel-Miranda’s vision of it on the stage is nothing short of breathtaking. Utilizing a color-conscious cast and portraying historical figures in ways you have never imagined, this heartfelt story of love, intrigue, freedom, and bravery features cutting edge music, dance numbers, and incredible drama to tell the story of one of America’s least well-known Founding Fathers. Come along for the ride as Hamilton leaves his home in the Caribbean, inspires the patriots of the American Revolution, and lends his unique ideas to the formation of our young country.
The Kennedy Center
As America’s foremost center for the performing arts, this is a match made in heaven. This legendary venue is perfectly equipped to match the spectacle and splendor of Hamilton as it was meant to be performed and promises to provide a unique entertainment experience the likes of which you have never seen. Plus, Washington, D.C. is currently gripped with Hamilton fever (the production opened in June), and rightly so: Hamilton, our nation’s first secretary of the Treasury, is well represented here, with plenty of themed attractions and events across the city all summer long.
