The good news for “Hamilton” devotees: The musical will return to Atlanta.
The bad news: You have to wait until March 31, 2020.
But hey, at least Atlanta snagged the Lin-Manuel Miranda phenomenon less than two years since its May 2018 debut.
“I think Atlanta is a city that they love and they wanted to get it back quickly,” said Russ Belin, vice president of Broadway in Atlanta, which will bring the show back to the Fox Theatre next year.
While specific dates haven’t been announced, Belin assures that it will be a multi-week engagement.
He’s also confident that the popularity of the Alexander Hamilton-themed musical hasn’t waned, either.
“Three weeks (of tickets) went quickly last time and I don’t see ‘Hamilton’ slowing any time soon,” he said. “We sold about 100,000 tickets in a city of 5 million, so it will be just as hot a ticket as it was last time.”
The announcement of “Hamilton”’s encore appearance was part of Monday’s unveiling of the Broadway in Atlanta 2019-2020 season, which also includes inaugural runs of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” “The Band’s Visit,” “Summer: The Donna Summer Musical,” “Anastasia” and the triumphant revival of “Hello, Dolly!”
Renewals for subscription packages begin at 10 a.m. Feb. 26; new subscriptions will be available in late April with prices starting at $319 for all of the season’s shows, including “Hamilton.” Visit broadwayinatlanta.com/season for more details.
That means as of now, “Hamilton” tickets are not for sale. The show typically doesn’t announce on-sale information for non-subscribers until a month or so prior to opening night.
“If anyone is seeing tickets for 2020, it’s a red flag,” Belin said. “No one has tickets.”
