Hamilton on Broadway wishes Chicago cast good luck on opening night

Updated

Hamilton is keeping it in the family. On Wednesday, the cast and crew of the hit Broadway show sent congratulations and good luck to their counterparts in Chicago for opening night.

The message came in the form of a new #Ham4Ham video in which the New York company members sing and dance along to the Sister Sledge classic “We Are Family” — or as they prefer to think of it, “We Are Hamily.”

Bowing Wednesday at the PrivateBank Theatre, the Chicago production of Hamilton has nearly sold out a year’s worth of performances. Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and author Ron Chernow, who wrote the bestselling biography on the which the show is based, will be on hand for the opening.
