It has won Tony®, Grammy®, and Olivier Awards, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and an unprecedented special citation from the Kennedy Center Honors.

“We had to wait for it, but Arkansans finally had their chance to be in ‘the room where it happens.’  We are humbled by the overwhelming support and enthusiasm we’ve received from Central Arkansas and the sold-out engagement solidified our return to live theatre here in Little Rock” states Kristin Dotson, CEO of Celebrity Attractions. “With patrons coming from 73 of Arkansas’ 75 counties and from each of its neighboring states, HAMILTON made an impact on downtown Little Rock.  Restaurants, hotels, and retail establishments have benefited from the number of visitors in town for the production.”
