Broadway hit 'Hamilton' to launch company in Chicago

NEW YORK (AP) -- The mega-hit Broadway show "Hamilton" is on the move -- a production will open in Chicago next September.

Producers said Tuesday that performances will begin Sept. 27 at the newly named The PrivateBank Theatre.

Written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, the musical tells the true story of an orphan immigrant from the Caribbean who rises to the highest ranks of American society, told by a young African-American and Latino cast.

It's got a terrifically varied score, ranging from pop ballads to sexy R&B to rap battles, with lyrical nods to Gilbert and Sullivan, Jason Robert Brown, "South Pacific" and the Notorious B.I.G.
