THEATER | 'Hamilton'


Geva Theatre Center on Monday will present a one-night-only reading of "Hamilton." No, not Lin-Manuel Miranda's Tony-winning musical phenomenon, but the biographical play written 100 years ago by West Bloomfield native Mary P. Hamlin and George Arliss. Like its hip-hop-infused successor, "Hamilton" chronicles the life of the influential founding father and first Secretary of the Treasury, and while the original Broadway "Hamilton" was not much of a success at the time, it did go on to inspire a 1931 film. The live reading will be performed by cast members of Geva's current production of "In the Heights."

A reading of "Hamilton" will take place Monday, September 25, at Geva, 75 Woodbury Boulevard. 7 p.m. The event is free with a refundable reservation fee of $10. Reservations are required, and can be made by phone at 232-4382.
