After 21 months on hiatus, Broadway in Austin returns with epic award-winner “HAMILTON,” running December 7th-19th, 2021.
“Welcoming ‘HAMILTON’ back is a spectacular way to celebrate the return of Broadway in Austin,” says Bob Bursey, Executive and Artistic Director of Texas Performing Arts. “This will be the first Broadway production to visit Bass Concert Hall in 21 months. We’re thrilled to welcome everyone back and kick off a great Broadway in Austin season with this history-making production.”
“HAMILTON” is the story of America then, told by America now. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway, “HAMILTON” has taken the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theatre—a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics, and education.
With book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, “HAMILTON” is based on Ron Chernow’s acclaimed biography. It has won Tony®, Grammy®, and Olivier Awards, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and an unprecedented special citation from the Kennedy Center Honors.
There is a maximum purchase limit of eight (8) tickets per account for the engagement. Ticket prices range from $49 to $179 with a select number of premium seats available from $249 for all performances.
