The FSCJ Artist Series sponsored by VyStar Credit Union, finally brought Broadway back to Jacksonville Florida through the live production of “HAMILTON” at the Times Union Center for the Performing Arts. The entire Moran Theatre was packed (along with a symphony in the Jacoby Hall). Traffic and parking were special in downtown JAX on October 1, 2021 because of the addition of a Jazz Festival, yet the police kept everything moving smoothly. Entry into the Times Union was quick with numerous doors being used to execute security checking. Will-call ticket pick up and concession stands were also quick and courteous. Tickets may still be available, and you might want to check their availability and if you have other questions, the answers may be located HERE. HAMILTON is so worth getting out, getting dressed up, wearing a mask, as you enjoy this popular show. HAMILTON has amazing period costumes, spectacular dancing, a wonderful revolving stage, and whimsical hip-hop and spoken word music (some who were familiar with the soundtrack sang quietly along) and lines. If you are unfamiliar with the storyline, have no fear; it’s very easy to follow and your program will also help with some of the characters.
It’s not too late to be a part of this history-making show, so get your tickets while the show is still in town.
