A touring production of Hamilton will be coming to Proctors during the 2018-2019 season.

Yep, that's a big deal because it's a hugely popular show. But it's also a year and a half (or more) away. And don't overlook a very solid lineup of Broadway shows for the 2017-2018 season, including the excellent The Color Purple.

Proctors announced that lineup -- along with the next Capital Rep lineup -- Monday night.

Tickets for both series go on sale today (February 7) as part of subscription packages. Individual show tickets will be available closer to the season starting. People who buy subscription packages this year will have first crack at Hamilton tickets next year.

Some shows end up being very popular, so you might want to plan ahead a little bit for tickets if you're interested in going.

Without further ado...

"From their humble beginnings in Cuba, Emilio and Gloria Estefan came to America and broke through all barriers to become a crossover sensation at the very top of the pop music world. But just when they thought they had it all, they almost lost everything. From international superstardom to life-threatening tragedy, On Your Feet! takes you behind the music and inside the real story of this record-making and groundbreaking couple who, in the face of adversity, found a way to end up on their feet."

Capital Rep 2017-2018 season

The ABBA-inspired show.

September 22-October 15: Sex With Strangers
"When Ethan, a strapping twenty-something blogger ends up snowbound at a bed and breakfast with his literary idol--fortyish novelist Olivia--sparks fly! In Laura Eason's Sex With Strangers, one thing leads to another as these two savvy writers give in to their mutual attraction--but, oh, in the morning, things are not quite what they seemed to be the night before. Soon it becomes clear that this passionate weekend will turn into a life-altering experience, all just a click or a tweet away."

"A gripping and sophisticated world premiere that looks behind the headlines at anti-Semitism in today's France." Winner of the Next Act! New Play Summit 5 at Capital Rep.

March 6-11: The Humans (at Proctors)
"Stephen Karam's The Humans is an uproarious, hopeful and heartbreaking play that takes place over the course of a family dinner on Thanksgiving." Won the 2016 Tony for best play.

April 6-April 29: Blithe Spirit
"One highly spirited wife is fun, but two is fertile ground for this smash comedy hit of the London and Broadway stages--from the witty pen of Noel Coward."

I've seen a steady increase in cycling trips along Madison Ave. after the road diet. I've been one of those riders, too. It's made summertime trips from my house to the Point on Madison that much faster than walking, and there's really no need to drive that short distance - thereby saving a spot for another patron. I've not only enjoyed the F out of the trip, but burned a few calories, too, which considering my diet, is much needed. I'm very very pleased with this effort and thank CDTA, CDPHP and CDTC for their efforts in making this happen. I'm resolving to make MORE trips in 2019!
