CHICAGO (AP) — The world premiere of an exhibit based on the Broadway hit “Hamilton” will be delayed three weeks in part due to recent subzero temperatures in Chicago.
“Hamilton: The Exhibition” was to premiere on Northerly Island along Lake Michigan on April 6 but producers now say it will open April 27. They blame unexpected delays in shipping, customs and a stretch of frigid weather last month when temperatures dropped to minus 23 (minus 30 Celsius).READ MORE: Chicago Weather: Record Warmth Possible Next 2 Days
