The much anticipated touring production of Hamilton makes its way to Vancouver as part of Broadway Across Canada‘s 2020-2021 season.

In a media release, the touring presenter revealed the Lin-Manuel Miranda musical about American founding father Alexander Hamilton will close its upcoming season with performances at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in June of next year. Inspired by Ron Chernow’s 2004 biography Alexander Hamilton, the Tony Award-winning musical features a mix of hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway.

Kicking off the season in September is the Kander and Ebb musical Chicago. The Tony Award-winning musical satirizes the corruption within the criminal justice system as it tells the story of two “celebrity criminals” Velma Kelly and Roxie Hart.

Starting off the new year, the romantic and adventure-filled new musical Anastasia arrives in January. Based on the 1997 film of the same name, the musical is set during the twilight of the Russian Empire Paris in the 1920s, as a young woman sets out to discover the mystery of her past.
