CHICAGO (AP) — The musical “Hamilton” will end its more than three-year run in Chicago in January 2020.

Producers made the announcement Thursday, saying the production playing at downtown Chicago’s CIBC Theatre would close Jan. 5, 2020. Productions of the Tony Award-winning musical detailing the life of U.S. founding father Alexander Hamilton currently are playing in New York, Chicago, San Francisco and London, along with a U.S. touring company.

Producer Jeffrey Seller said in a news release that more people have seen “Hamilton” in Chicago than in any other city. He added “you can bet that ‘we’ll be back.’” Producers say “Hamilton” will have played 1,341 performances during its 171-week run in Chicago, performing for more than 2.6 million people.

“Hamilton” opened in Chicago on Sept. 27, 2016.
