RAISE A GLASS TO FREEDOM!!! After 17 months and 523 days of being shutdown, Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s Award winning hottest ticket Hamilton relaunches its returning sit-down company in Los Angeles tonight!!!

This LA company of HAMILTON originally opened on March 12th, 2020 (following the success of the show’s ANGELICA 1ST National Tour company launching it there). It was slated to run till September 20th, 2020. However, it was abruptly shutdown after Opening Night due to the COVID-19 pandemic causing Live Theater everywhere to be shutdown.
What an unforgettable cast that will get audiences once again RISE UP in THE ROOM WHERE IT HAPPENS. Under the direction of Thomas Kail and choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, this LA company is led by….
Jamel Westman reprising his Olivier Award nominated performance from the London company as THE 10 DOLLAR FOUNDING FATHER himself “Alexander Hamilton”,
