There are still tickets available to see this award-winning show this month. With accolades that include GRAMMY, Tony, and Oliver awards, plus a Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Hamilton is a must-see this summer.

Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway, HAMILTON has taken the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theatre-a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics, and education.
