Is Chicago’s Hamilton Coming to LA?

It has been revealed on Playbill that the Chicago production of Hamilton will be coming to a close after a 3-year run at the CIBC Theatre. Final performance is scheduled for January 5, 2020.

When the Pantages Theatre announced their 2019-2020 Broadway Season earlier in the year, they showed us that Hamilton will be returning to the Pantages in March 2020. Will this Chicago company/production be coming to Los Angeles? I did tweet at them today. Still waiting for a reply. I might just be onto something.

I haven’t seen the Chicago production of Hamilton. I haven’t even been to Chicago. But from what I read on Twitter and Instagram from people who have seen it, some say that it is the greatest version of Hamilton that they have ever seen.

Broadway In Hollywood

Since this is my first real post, I don’t see the need to let you all know that I am also very much into Broadway musicals. Just to give you a little background information, I didn’t see my first stage musical until 2017 when Jersey Boys was in Los Angeles at the Ahmanson Theatre. From that point on, I wanted to see more and I eventually purchased a Season Package for Segerstrom’s 2018-2019 Broadway Season. So far I am 3 shows down, 3 more to go.

The Pantages Theatre recently announced their 2019-2020 Broadway Season. Dubbed “Broadway In Hollywood,” the new season brings Anastasia, Summer: The Donna Summer Musical, Frozen, Escape to Margaritaville, The SpongeBob Musical, Mean Girls, My Fair Lady, and The Band’s Visit to LA. New to this season will be a second venue, the Dolby Theatre, just down the street on Hollywood Blvd. Hamilton is also slated to return as a season add-on in March 2020.

At this moment, individual tickets are not on sale. Everyone has been asking and bugging them about it. They answered on an Instagram Story stating that individual show tickets typically go on sale 4-5 months before a show starts. However, you can purchase the Season Package right now.
