Lin-Manuel Miranda to ‘Hamilton’ fans: We’re closing a few shows tonight

Lin-Manuel Miranda is making a few last-minute changes to his hotshot musical “Hamilton” and its international franchise before one more performance in San Francisco next week.

I love this article:

In preparation for an upcoming limited engagement opening at the London Palladium, the Broadway smash has been retooled for the West End and has also been relaunched on film for international audiences.

In an even more unusual new adaptation, the international smash — the box-office hit of the decade and touted as the future of showbusiness — has been retooled twice for our global friends. It’s been first adapted for the London Palladium, the famed London theater venue, from which it is being relaunched on a limited run at the New York Marriott Marquis in London on Aug. 20.

“It was pretty crazy,” Miranda told The New York Times in an interview this week. “Everyone always tells you that when you have a hit on Broadway, you’re like, ‘I’m so sorry. I’m going to take it easy.’ But once you’ve had two hits in a row, suddenly you get the confidence that it can go anywhere, and you have an absolute need to take it everywhere.”
