Broadway show Hamilton coming to San Francisco in March 2017

From the blog of SierraFoodWineArt magazine:

The blockbuster Broadway musical Hamilton is coming to the SHN Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco in March 2017 as the anchor of its 2016-2017 season. The San Francisco performance is part of a national tour.

The show features book, music and lyrics by Tony Award-winner Lin-Manuel Miranda. Hamilton is based on Ron Chernow’s biography of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. A thoroughly inventive, wildly entertaining musical about the birth of our nation—with a score that blends hip-hop, pop, blues, jazz and Broadway—Hamilton opened on Broadway earlier this year to enthusiastic reception from critics and audiences of all ages.

“I am loath to tell people to mortgage their houses and lease their children to acquire tickets to a hit Broadway show,” wrote Ben Brantley in the New York Times. “But ‘Hamilton,’ directed by Thomas Kail and starring Mr. Miranda, might just about be worth it — at least to anyone who wants proof that the American musical is not only surviving but also evolving in ways that should allow it to thrive and transmogrify in years to come.

    Watched 60 minutes a couple of weeks ago and they did a feature on the play. I look forward to reading the book it was based on and seeing the play in 2017.
