‘Hamilton’ gets a shot at Bass Hall. Here’s when and the ticket info

The Tony Award-winning musical “Hamilton” will come to Fort Worth June 9-28, 2020, highlighting the 2019-2020 season at Bass Performance Hall.

Season tickets for a package of eight Performing Arts Fort Worth “Broadway at the Bass” musicals went on sale Wednesday morning at Prices for the eight musicals start at $343.40.

Individual “Hamilton” tickets will go on sale later.

Hamilton” is the Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical created by and starring Lin-Manuel Miranda. The boundaries-busting show features America’s Founders as played by a multiethnic cast expressing themselves in a mixture of hip-hop, rap, jazz, soul, R&B and Broadway show tunes.

The musical — which reintroduces theatergoers to Alexander Hamilton, the man who achieved so much more than just being “the dude on the 10-dollar bill” — has earned widespread acclaim for its revolutionary approach to history.

But historians have complained that the history is flawed and the depiction of the Founders is sterilized.
