What to do in Las Vegas on Memorial Day weekend — May 25-28

Hamilton

When “Hamilton” opens Tuesday at The Smith Center’s Reynolds Hall, Joseph Morales and Nik Walker will be center stage — playing friends-turned-rivals Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, respectively — in the Pulitzer- and Tony-winning musical.

“It’s the story of any creator … who has an idea and goes out into the world to make that idea known,” Walker says. “It’s all there. It’s that fight to find your place in the world and make your voice heard.”

“Hamilton” premieres at The Smith Center on Tuesday.

A digital lottery for $10 tickets to the Tony-winning musical about the “$10 Founding Father” — with 40 seats available for every performance — opens at 11 a.m. Sunday for tickets to the opening performance on Tuesday. See more about “Hamilton.”
