Lin-Manuel Miranda to play Hamilton in Chicago to honor Oscar Lopez Rivera

When Lin-Manuel Miranda bowed out of the title role in Hamilton last July, he said it probably wouldn’t be the last time he played the Founding Father.

“I feel like it’s not done with me,” he explained. And he meant it.

He’ll return to the part in the Chicago production to commemorate the commutation of Puerto Rican independence activist Oscar Lopez Rivera by President Obama. (Hamilton opened in October in Chicago, with Miguel Cervantes in the title role.)

It’s likely to be a one-off performance or limited run and no dates have been announced. Read more here.
