With book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler and music supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, HAMILTON is based on Ron Chernow’s biography of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. The HAMILTON creative team previously collaborated on the 2008 Tony Award ® Winning Best Musical In The Heights. HAMILTON features scenic design by David Korins, costume design by Paul Tazewell, lighting design by Howell Binkley, sound design by Nevin Steinberg, hair and wig design by Charles G. LaPointe, and casting by Telsey + Company, Bethany Knox, CSA.

    we are old we may not be around for return at a later date

    Thank you for the explanation.

    It's too bad there isn't more lead time on the digital lottery. For those of us who don't live in the Denver area, two days is not enough to arrange for lodging and count on I-70 to be open and passable. I realize Hamilton is a huge hit and demand is high. Perhaps in the future a more fair arrangement for rural Coloradans on the Western Slope can be made.
