Tickets are currently on sale (click here to purchase tickets). There will be a lottery for a limited number of $10 seats for all performances in San Francisco . Details will be announced closer to the engagement.
Hamilton producer Jeffrey Seller says, “The Bay Area has always been a special place for Hamilton after audiences embraced the launch of our first national tour. We are thrilled that Hamilton will reopen in San Francisco and play for four final weeks before continuing on as a west coast tour.”
“There’s no clearer sign that San Francisco is coming back to life than seeing live performances returning to our stages. Everyone has sacrificed so much over the past year to keep each other safe, and that meant that we couldn’t enjoy the shows and events that make our city such a special place. Now, with case numbers low and our vaccination rate approaching 80%, we’re excited that Hamilton is coming back to the Orpheum Theatre for our residents and visitors to enjoy once again,” said San Francisco Mayor London Breed.
Rainier Koeners, Managing Director of BroadwaySF says, “BroadwaySF is back, and we are thrilled that after a 17-month intermission, we’re not only reopening the Orpheum Theatre with Hamilton, but will also be the first Broadway Theatre in California to resume performances. Our plan is to open at 100% capacity, and we are working closely with the city of San Francisco to make sure our audience, actors, stagehands and ushers will safely return.”
Hamilton is the story of America then, told by America now. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway, Hamilton has taken the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theatre—a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics, and education. With book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, Hamilton is based on Ron Chernow’s acclaimed biography. It has won Tony®, Grammy®, and Olivier Awards, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and an unprecedented special citation from the Kennedy Center Honors.
The Hamilton creative team previously collaborated on the Tony Award®-Winning Best Musical In the Heights. Hamilton features scenic design by David Korins, costume design by Paul Tazewell, lighting design by Howell Binkley, sound design by Nevin Steinberg, hair and wig design by Charles G. LaPointe, casting by Telsey + Company, Bethany Knox, CSA, and General Management by Baseline Theatrical.
