Found­ing Father makes mu­si­cal re­turn

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - - NEWS -

LIN-MANUEL L Mi­randa is repris­ing his lead role in the hit mu­si­cal Hamil­ton to start a two-week run in Puerto Rico that’s ex­pected to raise thou­sands of dol­lars for artists and cul­tural groups strug­gling in the wake of Hur­ri­cane Maria.

Dozens of fans chat­ted ex­cit­edly out­side the show’s venue in San Juan yesterday as they waited in line to pick up tick­ets that ranged from $10 to $5000.

It is the first time Mi­randa (cen­tre) has per­formed the role of US Found­ing Father Alexan­der Hamil­ton since his last ap­pear­ance in the Broad­way ver­sion in July 2016.
