20,000 Chicago students to see ‘Hamilton,’ study US history

CHICAGO (AP) — An education program that debuted last year with the megahit musical “Hamilton” on Broadway is coming to the touring company in Chicago.

Broadway in Chicago says 1,900 Chicago Public Schools students and teachers will attend the Wednesday matinee performance of the Tony Award-winning musical. It’s the first of ten all-student matinee performances during this year. In all about 20,000 Chicago high school students will have the opportunity to see “Hamilton” after spending several weeks studying American history with a special accompanying curriculum about Alexander Hamilton and the U.S. founding fathers.

Students also will participate in question-and-answer sessions with the “Hamilton” cast and get to perform an original work they created in their classrooms on the theater stage.

“Hamilton” is Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hip-hop-flavored biography about the first U.S. treasury secretary.

Man who disrupted ‘Hamilton’ banned from some theaters

CHICAGO (AP) — A man charged with disrupting a Chicago performance of the musical “Hamilton” has pleaded guilty and is temporarily banned from some theaters.

John Palmer entered the plea Monday to a charge of misdemeanor trespassing and was sentenced to six months of court supervision. As part of his plea agreement, the 56-year-old can’t attend Broadway in Chicago productions for six months.

In court, Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney Lindsay Hicks told the judge that Palmer was “yelling,” ”cursing” and “making actresses fearful.”

Palmer’s attorney Jonathan Feldman had blamed the Nov. 19 incident on a “hostile” and “partisan” audience that was clearly against President-elect Donald Trump, whom Palmer supported. The cast had made comments to Vice President-elect Mike Pence at a previous performance.

After Monday’s hearing, Feldman said Palmer “regrets the incident.”

Lawyer: Man provoked by partisan crowd before ‘Hamilton’ arrest

(CHICAGO) The man charged with criminal trespassing after he allegedly refused to leave a Chicago production of “Hamilton” on Saturday was provoked by partisan theater goers riled up by the lecture a cast member in New York gave to Republican Vice President-elect Mike Pence from the stage the day before, the man’s lawyer said Monday.

“My understanding was everything was in response to an unfortunate, biased and partisan audience on the night in question,” said Jonathan D. Feldman, the attorney representing John Palmer, 56, of the downtown Streeterville neighborhood. “It is my understanding that the audience within the production of Hamilton has now been fueled by a fire created by the cast and production” in New York.

Feldman also insisted Palmer was neither intoxicated nor combative inside the PrivateBank Theatre during the incident, which occurred after actors playing Alexander Hamilton and the Marquis de Lafayette sang “Immigrants — we get the job done!”

That’s contrary to social-media postings of audience members, who described a man, now identified as Palmer, ranting loudly before he was removed, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting.

Afterward, video taken by one audience member, Jeff Grider, shows the man swearing and seeming to argue with somebody as security guards had him up against a wall in a vestibule outside the performance area.

Grider confirmed he shot the video, posted on Facebook, in an interview with the Chicago Sun-Times.

“Our side won! Our side won!” Grider recalled the man saying in the theater. “F— anyone who didn’t vote for [President-elect Donald] Trump, you don’t belong here!”

The episode went on for about six minutes before security intervened, Grider said on Facebook. Palmer later was charged with misdemeanor criminal trespass for refusing to leave.

Feldman, Palmer’s lawyer, said his client went to the show with family members and was forced to defend himself in the audience.

“It’s my understanding that prior to Mr. Palmer defending himself in the audience, other members of the audience had adequately antagonized and provoked a political viewpoint that was not in defense of our president-elect,” Feldman told reporters during a brief news conference outside a River North health club.

Feldman wouldn’t specifically say how Palmer, who couldn’t be reached for comment, responded to the audience provocation. Feldman described his client a “good family man, a company man.”

Palmer is due in court Jan. 9.

Feldman’s impassioned defense of Palmer came as the feud between Hamilton’s New York cast and Trump continued Monday.

Actor Brandon Victor Dixon, who plays Aaron Burr in the New York version of the musical, told “CBS This Morning” that “there’s nothing to apologize for.” Dixon gave Vice President-elect Mike Pence an onstage earful about equality at the end of Friday’s performance.

Trump has called on the cast to apologize to Pence.

Dixon said “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda had a hand in crafting Dixon’s remarks, although Dixon said he “made some adjustments.”

Dixon said that both Trump and Pence are welcome to come backstage and meet with the cast at any time, adding, “Art is meant to bring people together.”


‘Hamilton’ creator to receive award from Chicago museum

(CHICAGO) The creator of the Broadway smash “Hamilton” is set to receive an award at the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture in Chicago.

Lin-Manuel Miranda will appear at the museum Thursday evening to pick up the National Puerto Rican Ceiba (SAY’-buh) Award. Also receiving the award this year will be painter and printmaker Antonio Martorell. They will receive the honors at the museum’s annual fundraising gala.

“Hamilton” performances begin in Chicago next week. Miranda played Alexander Hamilton on Broadway. The Chicago company will feature Broadway veteran Miguel Cervantes in the role.

The award from the Chicago museum is named for a tree indigenous to the Caribbean and Latin America that is known for its deep roots and long life.
