CHICAGO — Lin-Manuel Miranda and the producers of his hit Broadway musical “Hamilton” are bringing a sprawling exhibit to Chicago about the musical’s Founding Father namesake.

The Chicago Tribune reports that “Hamilton: The Exhibition” will be an immersive, interactive exhibit about Alexander Hamilton and the founding of the United States. The exhibit will start Nov. 17 in a temporary structure the size of a football field on Northerly Island, a peninsula on Chicago’s lakefront.

Miranda created and starred in the original “Hamilton” production. He’ll provide a voice narration for the tour and be featured in video form.

Producer Jeffrey Seller says Chicago was chosen in part because of its support of the musical. It’s had a sold-out run since opening in Chicago in October 2016. Seller says the exhibit will likely stay for about six months before moving to other cities.
