Recording of ‘Hamilton’ may come to movie theaters in 2020, reports say

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Fans who missed out on seeing Lin-Manuel Miranda in the leading role of “Hamilton” may be in luck, according to the Wall Street Journal. 

The publication reported Tuesday that a bidding war is going on between Hollywood studios for a 2016 taping of the ever-popular stage musical. It could come to theaters by 2020. 

The production is currently on tour, with shows running at Cleveland’s Playhouse Square until August 26. 

Tickets cost hundreds of dollars, though a $10 lottery gives people a shot at seeing the acclaimed musical for less. 

“Hamilton” is a hip-hop musical that tells the story of founding father Alexander Hamilton. The production, which opened on Broadway in 2015, won 11 Tony Awards. 

The 2016 taping would let fans watch the show with some original cast members.
