LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Hamilton comes to the Kentucky Center Tuesday, June 4th through Sunday, June 23rd

Hamilton is finally coming to WAVE Country. The show makes its debut in Louisville June 4th through June 23 at the Kentucky Center.

The blockbuster Broadway hit is the story of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and was the new nation’s first Treasury Secretary. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B, and Broadway, HAMILTON is the story of America then, as told by America now.

Tickets to the show are hard to come by, but you can still get your hands on them, and they can be quite affordable. Digital lottery for Hamilton tickets will begin in conjunction with the show’s first performance Tuesday, June 4, in Louisville at Whitney Hall.
