Tickets for the extended Chicago showings go on sale Aug. 29.

“Hamilton” originally debuted in 2015 in New York City.

Chicago’s rendition has been called “vivid, fluid, endlessly ingenious, emotionally searing” by the Chicago Sun-Times.

“Hamilton” received a record-setting 16 Tony nominations, winning 11, in addition to winning both a Pulitzer and Grammy award in 2016.

It is only currently showing in Chicago and Los Angeles, but has a long list of upcoming locations.
