Lin-Manuel Miranda Will Star in "Hamilton" Again in Puerto Rico

Lin-Manuel Miranda Donald Trump Peurto Rico

Lin-Manuel Miranda is returning to the role that made him a household name.

The Tony award victor will bring his hit stage show to the country early in 2019 after it was left battered and bruised following devastating hurricanes which hit it late in the summer.

Miranda, whose parents were both born in Puerto Rico, also announced during his visit to the island a partnership with the Hispanic Federation, with the intention of donating $2.5 million in grants for a variety of nonprofit projects focused on recovery following Hurricane Maria.

Miranda, who left the title role in his Tony-winning Broadway musical in July 2016, will bring Hamilton to Teatro UPR in hurricane-ravaged San Juan from January 8th to January 27th.

Broadway's buzziest show is headed to Puerto Rico.

Still, he said investors need to consider the risks posed by Puerto Rico's record-setting bankruptcy and the potential impact of the storm - and the federal government's response - on the island's economy, Hammer wrote.

Miranda's first musical In the Heights also played in Puerto Rico in 2010, with the actor-composer also reprising his role.

"Bringing [Hamilton] to Puerto Rico is a dream that I've had since we first opened at The Public Theater in 2015", said Miranda in a statement. Built in 1939, the theater was severely damaged by Hurricane Maria, and will undergo restorations and repairs prior to Hamilton's 2019 bow.

'In the aftermath of Maria we chose to expedite the announcement of the project to send a bold message that Puerto Rico will recover and be back in business, stronger than ever'.

The show will continue its tradition of a $10 lottery for a portion of the seats.

While it's clear Miranda will do anything to help Puerto Rico - even embarrass himself - it's unclear where he's willing to grow his hair back for the role or he'll be donning a wig this time around. He convened a group of Latin music all-stars for a charity track, "Almost Like Praying", to raise money for hurricane relief.

In addition to touring productions, a production of Hamilton has opened in Chicago, and it's set to premiere on London's West End in December.
