Last week Popejoy announced that "Hamilton" will be coming to the University of New Mexico sometime during the 2020-2021 season. 

The dates of the performance, the price of tickets and the sale date of the tickets have not yet been announced. However, Popejoy said that 2019 - 2020 season pass holders will have first access to purchase tickets. 

Hamilton began its historic run in 2015 and was written by Lin-Manuel Miranda. The show was nominated for 16 Tony Awards and took home 11 of them in 2016. 



The smash hit examines the stories of Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, two determined men struggling with their traumatic pasts during the nascent stages of the newly-formed United States. The story takes place over the course of 20 years and features a troupe of famous political actors in the American Revolution and its aftermath. The musical is not historically accurate. 

The musical explores themes of legacy, trauma, love and friendship, blending a wide range of musical styles in the process. The predominantly hip-hop musical features the sounds of jazz, R&B, Broadway to British-pop.
