Lin-Manuel Miranda has been tirelessly raising money for Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria devastated most of the island. On Tuesday, the Tony-winning creator of the Broadway smash hit Hamilton said he will be bringing the show to Puerto Rico for a three-week run in January 2019.
Miranda announced the decision on Twitter:
In an interview with CBS, Miranda talked about his decision to take the show to Puerto Rico:

Hamilton debuted in 2015 and went on to win 11 Tony Awards. Tickets at one time were as high as $850.
