After Miranda’s final curtain call at the Richard Rodgers theater, the “Hamilton” creator/star will head to Hollywood, where plenty of opportunities await him. Currently, the actor/rapper is in post-production on “Speech & Debate” and gearing up to star in “Mary Poppins Returns,” which is slated for 2018. In that movie, he’ll star opposite Emily Blunt, who will play the title character.
“Hamilton” was recently nominated for a record 16 Tony Awards, with Miranda getting a Best Actor nod. If theatergoers want to catch his final performance, be prepared to pay these eye-popping prices.
