The American Theatre Guild announced on Thursday that “Hamilton” will make its debut at the BJCC for Broadway in Birmingham scheduled for the 2021-22 season.
“Hamilton” is the story of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and was the new nation’s first Treasury Secretary. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B, and Broadway, “Hamilton” is the story of America then, as told by America now.
