Just you wait (but not much longer): “Hamilton” is coming to Denver

This is not a drill. “Hamilton” is coming to the Buell Theatre next season, the Denver Center for the Performing Arts announced.

The Broadway sensation just won 11 Tony Awards, and that recognition hardly scratches the surface of the musical’s success.

It’s notoriously next to impossible to get tickets to the show in New York City, so if you want to go in Denver, offer up your first-born now. Alternatively, you can get a 2017/2018 Broadway subscription, which will give you the best chance of securing seats. Current subscribers who renew are guaranteed tickets, according to the DCPA.

OK, now for the bad news if you’re still hoping to catch the show in New York. “Hamilton” creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda is leaving the production when his contract expires July 9. He will be replaced by his alternate, Javier Muñoz, who also replaced him in the Broadway musical “In The Heights.”

That doesn’t affect the Denver cast, but it’s sad nonetheless.
