'Hamilton' Premieres In Puerto Rico Friday Night

On Friday, people in Puerto Rico will be able to see "Hamilton," the musical.

According to CNN, Lin-Manuel Miranda's hit musical will premiere on Friday night at Centro de Bellas Artes in San Juan.

The play is set to have a two-week run and proceeds will help raise money for local arts programs. Miranda, who is of Puerto Rican descent, returns to his role as Alexander Hamilton for the run.

The Tony Award winning place was relocated from the University of Puerto Rico's Rio Piedras campus amid student protests and security concerns.

Miranda explained to CBS, "We had security concerns because the university doesn't have its own police, it's difficult for police to go in...So, if anything were to happen -- even if the possibilities were remote -- we didn't want to run that chance."
