Were you unable to score tickets to see “Hamilton” during its first national tour? Take heart — another national tour is kicking off early next year.

Producer Jeffrey Seller said Monday a second tour of the megahit musical will start in Seattle for six weeks in February 2018. It then goes to Portland, Oregon; Salt Lake City, Utah; Costa Mesa, California; Las Vegas, Nevada; Des Moines, Iowa; Cleveland, Ohio; and Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The new company follows the first national tour, which began in San Francisco last week, as well as the Chicago production, which began in September 2016, and the London staging, which debuts in November.

“Hamilton,” Lin-Manuel Miranda’s multiple award-winning take on the nation’s first U.S. treasury secretary, has a varied score and has been cheered for reclaiming the nation’s founding story with a multicultural cast.
