"Hamilton" Interactive Exhibition Coming To Chicago This Fall
Fans of the mega-musical "Hamilton" have one more reason to rejoice this year, as "Hamilton: The Exhibition" is set to open in Chicago this November. Taking a deeper look into the life and times of Alexander Hamilton and the formation of America, the "360-degree immersive exhibition," according to its website, will feature an audio guide from "Hamilton" creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.
“People want to learn more,” Miranda told the Chicago Tribune. “It seems that two hours and 45 minutes of a musical were just not enough for them. I know from my Twitter account.”
Miranda and his team are onboard for giving fans a rich, interactive experience. The show's director Thomas Kail, producer Jeffrey Seller, and creative director, David Korins, who designed the set for “Hamilton” are all on-board for the pop-up project, which will reportedly be about the size of a football field. The exhibition will present a mixture of dynamic lighting, sound, multimedia, and artifacts to experience the way Hamilton lived, all told through the narrative arc of the widely loved musical.
The exhibition will debut for at least six months in Chicago — where the show is currently running sold-out performances — before heading out on the road to travel to other cities.
Tickets for "Hamilton: The Exhibition" are not yet on sale, but fans can sign up to be notified when they become available via the exhibition's website.
