Start saving those $10 bills, theater fans, because "Hamilton" is coming to San Diego.

The smash Broadway musical based on the life of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton is going to be part of Broadway San Diego's 2017/2018 season. The show is nominated for a record 16 Tony Awards and is sold out on Broadway through next year.

No specific dates have been announced, and The San Diego Union-Tribune speculates that it won't get here any earlier than 2018.

"Hamilton," created by Lin-Manuel Miranda, fuses hip-hop, rap and R&B with traditional show tunes and is one of the most successful theater productions in recent Broadway history.

Because of its mixed-race casting, the show is credited with bringing diversity into the theater, as well as keeping Hamilton on the $10 bill.

Tickets for the New York show were just raised to $849 for one premium seat (there are also $10 tickets to 46 seats per show). Prices for the national tour, which also stops in San Francisco and Los Angeles, haven't been released.

Broadway San Diego will also release date and location details at a later date, but guarantees tickets to upcoming season subscribers. Subscriptions to the 2016/17 season are still available by calling (888) 937-8995 or at broadwaysd.com
