TAMPA, Fla. — Five years after debuting on Broadway, the world still can't get enough "Hamilton."

And, the hit Broadway musical will come back to the Straz Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa for the 2020-2021 season.

The Straz said the Tony award-winning musical from Lin-Manuel Miranda returns June 1-27, 2021.

"Hamilton" first came to the Straz Center in February 2019.

The show is credited with helping the Straz sell a record number of season tickets and a record number of single tickets. Back in February, Director of Marketing Summer Bohnenkamp said the Straz was expecting 80,000 people to see the musical during its four-week Tampa run.

"Hamilton" debuted on Broadway in 2015 and is based on Ron Chernow's extensive biography of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. The show has since garnered a renewed interest in history and culture, a global fanbase beyond American history nerds and a return on investment of about 600 percent. 

All that from a hip-hop musical about the United States' first treasury secretary.

Didn't get to see the show in Tampa the first time around? Don't throw away your shot for performances next year.
