An additional tour city of Lin-Manuel Miranda's Broadway musical Hamilton has been announced. The production will play San Diego during the 2017-18 season as part of the Broadway San Diego series. Venue, dates, and additional information will be revealed at a later date.

Hamilton opened at the Richard Rodgers Theatre on August 6 after a run at the Public Theater. Written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, directed by Thomas Kail, and inspired by Ron Chernow's biography Alexander Hamilton, the musical explores the life of the American founding father and first Secretary of the Treasury. It follows Hamilton from his experiences as an orphan of the British West Indies who immigrated to the 13 Colonies to his role as a founding father who helped shape the United States of America.

On Broadway, Miranda takes on the title role alongside Leslie Odom Jr. (Aaron Burr), Drama Desk Award winner Renée Elise Goldsberry (Angelica Schuyler), Phillipa Soo (Eliza Hamilton), Jonathan Groff (King George), Daveed Diggs (Marquis De Lafayette, Thomas Jefferson), Christopher Jackson (George Washington), Anthony Ramos (John Laurens, Phillip Hamilton), Okieriete Onaodowan (Hercules Mulligan, James Madison), and Jasmine Cephas Jones (Peggy Shuyler, Maria Reynolds). Javier Muñoz plays Alexander Hamilton once a week.

The previously announced tour will kick off at San Francisco's SHN Orpheum Theatre in March 2017, where it will play for 21 weeks before heading to Los Angeles' Hollywood Pantages Theatre for a run from August 11-December 30. The tour will run in addition to a previously announced Chicago run of Hamilton, which will play at the PrivateBank Theatre beginning September 27. That production will sit down for at least a year in Chicago before touring the country.
