We are delighted to announce that the touring production of Hamilton will be coming to Toronto as part of the 2019-20 Mirvish subscription season. This will be a limited engagement and we will share more details, exact dates and a venue at a later date.

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.

Dear Friends,

As you know, a few weeks ago we announced our 2017-18 season, and the response couldn’t be better. I’m writing to you today with some very exciting news about a future season. We wouldn’t typically share news this early, but we just can’t hold back our enthusiasm – and many of you have been asking!

We are delighted to announce that the touring production of HAMILTON will be coming to Toronto as part of the 2019-20 Mirvish subscription season. This will be a limited engagement and we will share more details, exact dates and a venue at a later date.

With book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler and musical direction and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, HAMILTON is based on Ron Chernow’s biography of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton.
