The Denver Center for the Performing Arts just announced its 2017-’18 Broadway season, and it includes Hamilton, which will open at the Buell Theatre on February 27, 2018 — which means less than a year to wait. The Broadway blast is the story of 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.
Hamilton is so hot that it almost overshadows other hits in the lineup, including The Book of Mormon, Denver's biggest ticket just a few years ago. The show, by South Park hometown heroes Matt Stone and Trey Parker, will be at the Ellie. Here's the complete schedule:
