This is not a drill. “Hamilton” is coming to Greenville.
The national tour of the Broadway musical “Hamilton” will play Greenville’s Peace Center in 2018 as part of the 2018-2019 Broadway season, it was announced today by producer Jeffrey Seller and the Peace Center.
The best way to guarantee tickets to “Hamilton” is to purchase a season subscription for the 2017-2018 Broadway season, which will be announced on March 28. Season ticket holders who renew their subscription for the 2018-2019 season will be able to guarantee their tickets for the Peace Center’s premiere South Carolina engagement of “Hamilton” before tickets become available to the general public.
Information regarding engagement dates and how to purchase groups and single tickets will be announced at a later time.
“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, as told by America now.
