Time to freak out: touring production of Hamilton is coming to Toronto

Hamilton, the megahit Broadway musical that retells the life of U.S. Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, is coming to Toronto in 2019. 

David Mirvish issued a release on Thursday morning announcing that the touring production of the hip-hop influenced show would be part of the 2019-20 Mirvish subscription season. 

The musical has won major accolades since production began in New York, including the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for drama. It has also spawned a cast album, a cover album featuring stars like Alicia Keys and Nas, a PBS documentary and a book about its creation. 

By the time Hamilton makes its way to Toronto, it will already have had productions in Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and London. 

The Mirvish release says that more details about the exact dates and venue will be shared at a future date, putting off the inevitable scramble for tickets for at least a little while.
