Hamilton star reprises role to raise funds for Puerto Rico

Lin-Manuel Miranda is reprising his lead role in the hit musical Hamilton to start a two-week run in Puerto Rico expected to raise thousands of dollars for artists and cultural groups struggling in the wake of Hurricane Maria.

Dozens of fans chatted excitedly outside the show’s venue in San Juan on Friday as they waited in line to pick up tickets that ranged from 10 to 5,000 US dollars.

It is the first time that Miranda has performed the role of US founding father Alexander Hamilton since his last appearance in the Broadway version in July 2016.
