We're holding auditions for Hamilton IN Puerto Rico this summer. This is for the tour that will premiere in PR in January 2019, with me as Hamilton for those 3 weeks. The audition sheet:
HAMILTON: AN AMERICAN MUSICAL will play a three-week run, January 8th through 27th, 2019, at Teatro UPR, the theater at the University of Puerto Rico's main campus in the Río Piedras section of San Juan."Bringing Hamilton: AN AMERICAN MUSICAL to Puerto Rico is a dream that I've had since we first opened at The Public Theater in 2015," said Lin-Manuel Miranda. "When I last visited the island, a few weeks before Hurricane Maria, I had made a commitment to not only bring the show to Puerto Rico, but also return again to the title role. In the aftermath of Maria we decided to expedite the announcement of the project to send a bold message that Puerto Rico will recover and be back in business, stronger than ever." Built in 1939, Teatro UPR is considered Puerto Rico's most iconic stage. The theater is located at the heart of the campus and has hosted legendary stage, music, and opera performances by local and international companies, as well as lectures with legends of the world's cultural scene. The birthplace and first home of the world-renowned Casals Festival, Teatro UPR has most recently hosted Spanish language productions of Evita, Into the Woods, Master Class, The Sound of Music and Once on This Island. Raúl Juliá and Miriam Colón, among many other artists of Puerto Rican descent who have made a mark on Broadway and Hollywood, got their start at Teatro UPR.
