Tony Award Nominee Jarrod Spector Returns to Broadway in 'Hamilton'

The Broadway stage is set to welcome back the exceptional talents of Tony Award nominee Jarrod Spector as he takes the spotlight once again. Spector will be gracing the historic Richard Rodgers Theatre, starting tonight, Tuesday, September 12, 2023, in the role of 'King George III' in the much-celebrated Tony Award-winning musical, HAMILTON.

Jarrod Spector's theatrical journey is nothing short of extraordinary. He embarked on his Broadway career at the tender age of nine, leaving an indelible mark as Gavroche in the original production of Les Misérables. With an astounding 1500 performances as Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys, he solidified his place in the annals of Broadway history. Spector's excellence was recognized with a Tony Award nomination for his portrayal of Barry Mann in Beautiful - The Carole King Musical. Most recently, he wowed audiences in the critically acclaimed MUNY production of CHESS.

For fervent fans who have eagerly awaited Spector's return, this marks a momentous comeback to Broadway since his final bow as Sonny Bono in The Cher Show in August 2019.

HAMILTON, the musical phenomenon that has taken the world by storm, continues to captivate audiences with its unique blend of hip-hop, jazz, R&B, and Broadway melodies. Lin-Manuel Miranda's brilliant creation brings the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton to life in a way that transcends time, culture, and history, leaving an indelible impact on culture, politics, and education.

The production, with its remarkable book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, draws inspiration from Ron Chernow's celebrated biography. HAMILTON boasts an impressive collection of awards, including Tony®, Grammy®, and Olivier Awards, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and a unique special citation from the Kennedy Center Honors.

Behind the scenes, HAMILTON features the creative talents of David Korins (scenic design), Paul Tazewell (costume design), Howell Binkley (lighting design), Nevin Steinberg (sound design), and Charles G. LaPointe (hair and wig design). The casting is overseen by The Telsey Office, Bethany Knox, CSA, with general management by Baseline Theatrical. The musical is produced by Jeffrey Seller, Sander Jacobs, Jill Furman, and The Public Theater.

Audiences can relish the music of HAMILTON through the Original Broadway Cast Recording, available nationwide and recipient of the 2016 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album.

As the curtains rise once more on Broadway, theatergoers are encouraged to visit the official HAMILTON website for ticket availability:
