"Hamilton" creator receives award at Humboldt Park museum

CHICAGO (WLS) -- "Hamilton" creator Lin-Manuel Miranda received an award at the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture in Humboldt Park Thursday night.

Miranda cut loose with artist Antonio Martorell before they both received wards from the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture. The award came five days before Miranda's smash hit opens in Chicago.

ABC7's Janet Davies sat down with Miranda to discuss why he brought "Hamilton" to Chicago and his visit to Humboldt Park.

Broadway fans in Chicago will get more opportunities to see the Tony Award-winning musical "Hamilton."

Producers Jeffrey Seller and Broadway in Chicago announced Thursday that 26 more weeks have been added to the show's open-ended Chicago run.

"Hamilton: An American Musical" debuts at The PrivateBank Theatre, located at 18 W. Monroe St., on Sept. 27. The original block offered tickets through March next year and sold out incredibly fast.
