Tony Award-winning Broadway smash hit “Hamilton” made its Milwaukee debut on Oct. 22 at the Marcus Performing Arts Center. All 32 shows of the extended four-week run are expected to sell out, and local businesses such as The Rumpus Room are cashing in on that impact. The nearby restaurant is hosting a Colonial-themed dinner in its 50-seat private event room before each “Hamilton” performance, allowing it to bring in more diners than it usually would during an already booked Broadway night.
