Out at Chicago History Museum: Our Bars

Shamilton! The Improvised Musical @ Apollo Theater
Have you ever heard of this show “Hamilton”? Shamilton is just like that, but (ahem) better! Expect the (ahem) same level of hip hop, incredible songs, stunning choreography and powerhouse singing… except made up on the spot! Join the Shamilton cast as they improvise an epic musical based on a historical figure of your choosing. It’s the show Lin-Manuel Miranda calls, “cease and desist!”
