“Shamilton,” the newest improvised musical inspired by the hit musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda, arrives at the Apollo Theater January 20! Directed by Emmy Award-winner Peter Gwinn, the improvised musical features a 75-minute live-performance musical written on-the-spot about a historic figure of the audiences’ choosing.

Inviting audiences to call out any famous historic figure—from Leonardo da Vinci to Genghis Khan to Paris Hilton—“Shamilton” unfolds in real time, complete with gorgeous solos, sweeping chorus numbers and hilarious on-the-fly choreography.

With a cast made up of ensemble members from “Baby Wants Candy” and some of Chicago’s top musical improvisors, “Shamilton” runs every Friday at 10:30 p.m. through March 31. Tickets ($15-$20) are on sale now, and can be purchased at the Apollo Theater Box Office by calling 773.935.6100 or visiting
