“Hamilton” will not be part of the mix. No surprise there. But Broadway in Chicago has announced the lineup for its annual Summer Concert on the stage of the Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Millenium Park – a program that serves as a teaser for the coming season’s lineup of national touring company productions of Broadway musicals.

The free concert, scheduled for 6:15 p.m. on Aug. 15, and presented in collaboration with the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, will include the previously announced cast performances from Disney’s “Aladdin,” the return of “Beautiful – The Carole King Musical,” “The Bodyguard” (with Grammy Award-nominee and R&B superstar Deborah Cox), “Finding Neverland,” the 2015 Tony Award-winning best musical, “Fun Home,” and Cameron Mackintosh’s new production of the Andrew Lloyd Webber classic, “The Phantom of the Opera.” New additions to the lineup include Stephen Trask (composer and lyricist of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch”), as well as cast members from the revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “The King and I,” “Something Rotten!” and “Stomp.”
