The new musical features Miranda in the title role, under the direction of Tony Award-nominated In the Heights director Thomas Kail. Hamilton began previews Jan. 20 toward a Feb. 17 opening night. The Off-Broadway production at the Public's Newman Theater will now run an additional four weeks through May 3. The extended engagement was originally scheduled through April 5.
The Public Theater engagement is supported by Jeffrey Seller, Sander Jacobs and Jill Furman, all of whom helped usher Miranda's In the Heights to Broadway in 2008.
