WASHINGTON — D.C.-area musical theater fans rejoice: “Hamilton” takes center stage at the Kennedy Center starting June 2018.

The Tony Award-winning musical starts its D.C. run on June 12, 2018 and goes until Sept. 16, 2018. The Kennedy Center revealed its 2017-18 theater season Monday, which includes shows such as “The Color Purple,” “An American in Paris, “On Your Feet!” and “The Book of Mormon.”

“Hamilton” won 11 Tonys last year, including Best Musical, and the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for drama. It premiered off-Broadway in 2015 and moved to Broadway that same year, enjoying a run of sold-out performances.

Beyoncé, Samuel L. Jackson and Mike Pence have all seen the musical.

Details on tickets and when they would go on sale have not been announced yet.
