The 19th annual Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards will be presented at a private cocktail reception on May 24 in New York City. The Hamilton tour, currently playing Houston's Hobby Center and Costa Mesa's Segerstrom Hall, continues to criss-cross the country, with upcoming engagements in Atlanta, Minneapolis, Boston and more.
