“HAMILTON” THE MOST POPULAR SHOW
EVERY ONE WANTS TO SEE COMING TO ARSHT CENTER
Coming to the Arsht Center February 18- March 15, 2020, Hamilton is the story of America’s founding father Alexander Hamilton, with music, lyrics, and book by Lin-Manuel Miranda, inspired by the 2004 biography of Alexander Hamilton, written by Ron Chernow.
The show is an achievement of historical and cultural reimagining. The costumes and set reflect the period, with velvet frock coats and knee breeches. The show revolves around the life of Alexander’s many achievements as a military hero and aide to George Washington, as the first Secretary of the Treasury and much more.
Hamilton is a story about America, and the most beautiful thing about it is ....it’s told by such a diverse cast with such diverse styles of music, according to Renee Elise Goldberry who played Angelica Schuyler. Although it was based on historical events and people, Miranda did use some dramatic license in retelling the story. For example while Angelica did have a strong relationship with Hamilton, it was exaggerated in the show.
In 2015, the U.S. Department of the Treasury announced a redesign of the $10 dollar bill, with plans to replace Hamilton, with a then-undecided woman from American history. Because of Hamilton’s surging popularity, almost exclusively due to the musical, the United States Treasury Secretary Jack Lew reversed the plans to replace Hamilton’s portrait.
Hamilton has been awarded almost every award possible, in every category that has ever been awarded for a musical, leaving audiences clamoring for tickets, now available from $78 to $198, and up, at the Arsht Center through Ticketmaster. Performances in the Ziff Ballet Opera House opens February 18 and runs through March 15, 2020. For all other information call the box office at 786-468-2326, located at 1300 Biscayne Blvd., Miami.

ROMANTIC SINGER ENGELBERT HUMPERDINCK
BRINGS HIS 2020 TOUR
TO THE PARKER PLAYHOUSE
Engelbert Humperdinck showed an interest in music at the young age of ten. He began learning the saxophone. By the early 1950's, he was playing saxophone in nightclubs, but he is believed not to have tried singing until he was seventeen, when friends coaxed him into entering a pub contest. His impression of Jerry Lewis prompted friends to begin calling him “Gerry Dorsey,” a name that he worked under for almost a decade.
His music career was interrupted by his national service in the British Army Royal Corps of Signals during the mid-1950's. He got his first chance to record in 1958 with Decca Records after his discharge. His first single ‘I’ll Never Fall in Love Again,” was not a hit, but Dorsey recorded for the same company almost a decade later with very different results.
He continued working the nightclubs until 1961, when he was stricken with tuberculosis. He regained his health and returned to nightclub work, but with little success. Dorsey spent the early 1960's living in a house with Johnny “Sambuca” Todd in Jersey, where he advanced and developed his talent.
In early 1967, the changes paid off when Humperdinck’s version of
“Release Me”made the top ten on both sides of the Atlantic and number 1 in Britain and is believed to have sold 85,000 copies a day at the height of his popularity. His style and good looks earned him a large following particularly among women. “Release Me” was followed by two more hit ballads.
Tickets are now on sale for the January 23, 2020 performance at 7:30 p.m. and will soon be sold out. For more information call the box office at 954-660-6307 located at 707 NE 8th Street, Fort Lauderdale.
