Doors will open 30 minutes before show time, but latecomers can still enter at their preferred time during the show.
Based on Ron Chernow's book Alexander Hamilton published in 2004, the musical blends hip-hop, R&B, jazz, and Broadway to tell the story of American Founding Father Alexander Hamilton as a poor orphan who later became the right-hand of George Washington, helped draft the U.S. Constitution, and revolutionize the country's financial system, among many other feats.
The musical made its off-Broadway debut in February 2015 and has earned $649.9 million (P36 billion) in sales as of 2020, earning its spot in the top 10 highest-grossing musicals of all time.
