The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust announced its lineup of musicals coming to Pittsburgh for the 2017-2018 PNC Broadway in Pittsburgh season, but the news was somewhat overshadowed by the H-bomb they dropped about next year. Yes, that’s right. Hamilton is coming to town.

Of course you want to know the dates, and when tickets go on sale, but you’ll have to wait until the spring of 2018 to learn all that. What we can tell you is that subscribers to the 2017-2018 PNC Broadway in Pittsburgh season will have first access to Hamilton tickets when they renew their subscription for the 2018-2019 season, so if you were on the fence about signing up, now may be the time to be decisive.

In the meantime, there’s a lot to be excited about in this upcoming year. Here’s what will be tiding you over:
