'Hamilton' is here: A sneak peek at the landmark musical's arrival in L.A.

Wait for it? No more. “Hamilton” is here. Let the countdown begin.

Three days. Seventy-two hours. Four thousand, three-hundred and twenty minutes. No matter how you put it, the wait for the first Los Angeles performance of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s landmark musical has been a long time coming for “Ham” fans. At long last, the first preview will be 8 p.m. Friday, in advance of opening night Aug. 16.

The Times will begin rolling out extensive coverage on Wednesday. Behind-the-scenes features on the production’s arrival, cast interviews, plus coverage of the opening night scene all will be posted to our “Hamilton” story gallery in the days to come.

Until then, a sneak peek: exclusive photos of preparation inside the room where it happens, the Hollywood Pantages Theatre. Check back for regular updates at latimes.com/hamilton.
