First came ‘Hamilton’ the musical; next is ‘Hamilton’ the exhibition

A trip through the life of Alexander Hamilton, voiced by Lin-Manuel Miranda, with tickets going for under $40?
That’s no misprint. It’s “Hamilton: The Exhibition,” the museum show that will make its debut in Chicago — and allow hordes of history buffs to become part of the “Hamilton” phenomenon.
The immersive, 360-degree exhibition will open April 27 on Northerly Island, a Lake Michigan peninsula that was home to the 1933-34 “Century of Progress” World’s Fair.
According to the Choose Chicago tourism bureau, the exhibition “will take visitors deeper into the life and times of Alexander Hamilton, while at the same time chronicling the American Revolution and the creation of the United States of America.”
There’s an endless appetite for the history of Hamilton and that era, the Tony award-winning playwright said.
“People want to learn more,” Miranda told the Chicago Tribune. “It seems that two hours and 45 minutes of a musical were just not enough for them. I know from my Twitter account.”
The exhibition runs through Sept. 8 in Chicago before embarking on a U.S. tour.
Surely San Francisco, which is currently hosting a second run of the smash-hit musical, is on the list?
Those who know aren’t saying — yet. The Hamilton team is keeping the list of cities “closely under wraps,” according to the Chicago PR folks.
If you want to head to Chicago to be among the first to attend the exhibition, tickets are $39.50 for adult general admission, $32.50 for senior/military and $25 for youths aged 4-14. Chicago public school students in 4th grade and above are being offered free admission.
