Take 3’s Keith Webb has landed a role as an ensemble cast member in the Chicago production of the smash-hit musical Hamilton.
Prior to Hamilton, Webb appeared in Rocktopia on Broadway, along with regional productions of In The Heights, Legally Blonde, and Sweeney Todd.
Written by Lin Manuel Miranda, Hamilton follows the life of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. Its combination of hip-hop and R&B style melodies with show tunes took the world by storm, and a result Hamilton achieved a record setting 16 Tony nominations, winning 11 of them.
Following the show’s mass success upon its opening on Broadway in 2015, a Chicago production was added in 2016. The show received positive reviews upon its open from a number of publications and is currently booking through January 2019.
