It might be, without exaggeration, the most anticipated theatrical tour of the past several decades.
More on ‘Hamilton’ in Atlanta:
And yes, Atlanta, it is time to mark your calendars, schedule any anticipated travel and book a babysitter now, because “Hamilton” will play the Fox Theatre May 22-June 10, 2018.
The show — phenomenon, really — manages to make as dry a subject as Secretary of the Treasury and Founding Father Alexander Hamilton engaging, thanks to the brilliant mind of creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and his penchant for crafting dexterous, meaningful raps and musical hooks that seem to be an increasingly fleeting thought on Broadway.
While “Hamilton” is the cherry on top, the season comprises a slew of other notable shows, including “Something Rotten!,” “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder,” “Love Never Dies,” “The Color Purple,” “Rodgers & Hammerstein’s The King and I” and the 20th anniversary tour of “Rent.”
