Hamilton musical could be coming to Toronto

Toronto fans of Lin-Manuel Miranda's Hamilton no longer have to feel so helpless. That's because the hit musical might be making its way to Toronto, reports the Globe and Mail today.

David Mirvish is not throwing away his shot to mount the Pulitzer Prize-winning show on a local stage. Instead, he's working with Hamilton producer Jeffery Seller to bring it to the great white north. As the Globe writes, they're looking at possibly putting up a production here using an all-Canadian cast.

The musical, as its name suggest, tells the story of the ten-dollar founding father Alexander Hamilton through hip-hop and rap as well as an array of other musical styles.

It's nearly impossible to see the show at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in Manhattan, unless you're willing to fork out nearly $1,000 for tickets on re-sale sites. But if you want a sneak peek, check out the Tony Awards this Sunday where Hamilton has a record-breaking 16 nominations.

While the Toronto production wouldn't happen for a while, my dreams of it finally making its way here can stay alive.
