PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Pittsburghers will have to be willing to wait for it just a little bit longer. The smash hit musical “Hamilton” won’t be coming to town until 2019.
The Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical will be at the Benedum Center from Jan. 1 to Jan. 27, 2019.
The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust announced their entire 2018-19 PNC Broadway in Pittsburgh line-up Monday evening at the Benedum Center.
Musical fans in Pittsburgh have been eagerly waiting for about a year to find out exactly when “Hamilton” would be coming. The Trust announced last year that the show would be part of the 2018-19 season, but the dates of the engagement weren’t announced at that time.
Also coming to Pittsburgh later this year and early next year are “The Play That Goes Wrong,” “Anastasia,” “Fiddler On The Roof,” “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” “Come From Away,” and “Dear Evan Hansen,” which won the 2017 Tony Award for Best Musical.
The PNC Broadway in Pittsburgh Season Specials include “Cirque Éloize Hotel,” “ELF The Musical,” “The Phantom of the Opera” and “The Book of Mormon.”
Information on the best chances to get tickets to “Hamilton” and other Broadway in Pittsburgh shows can be found on TrustArts.org.
Individual ticket sale dates for “Hamilton” and the other shows in the season will be posted on TrustArts.org at a later date. There will also be a ticket lottery for every “Hamilton” performance in Pittsburgh.
“So, right now, of course, the best way to get tickets to ‘Hamilton’ is to be an entire season subscriber,” said Kevin McMahon, of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust. “However, there will be many, many thousands of individual tickets that will also be available.”
Those individual tickets will go on sale sometime this fall, and they haven’t been priced yet.
