Lin-Manuel Miranda’s groundbreaking hip-hop musical also broke box office records, earning the most money in a single week out of any other Broadway show by raking in $3.3 million for an eight performances over the span of one week.

According to the newspaper, national touring company Broadway Across America made the announcement during their show lineup reveal for this coming 2017-2018 season for the Fort Lauderdale theater.
