Black History Month in Houston is closing out with a bang as Hamilton makes its way back. Created by American playwright, composer and actor, Lin-Manuel Miranda, the award-winning Broadway musical opens tonight at the Hobby Center and is one of the season’s most coveted productions.

The musical is a contemporary take on America’s origin story and is told through the lens of Alexander Hamilton, founding father and right-hand man to the nation’s first president George Washington. Miranda took inspiration from Ron Chernow’s biography on Hamilton and fused it with a genre-blending score and dynamic choreography. The revolutionary production has taken the world by storm since its premiere at New York’s Public Theatre in 2015. 

Every element of the musical is a hit, from the expert performances to the set and costume design. A year after it debuted on Broadway, Hamilton dominated the award circuit, racking in a Pulitzer Prize for Drama and sweeping 11 Tony Awards (out of its 16 total nominations). The soundtrack also won a Grammy for Best Musical Theatre Album and a Billboard Music Award in 2017. 

Now, Houston audiences can get their musical fix with this contemporary classic. Tickets start at $49 and premium seats are available for $249.

Performances kick off this evening at the Hobby Center’s Sarofim Hall and will continue through Sunday, March 20. Beware of ticket fraud and purchase seats safely here
