NAVY PIER — The Chicago cast of "Hamilton" isn't throwing away its shot to make a difference, recording a new song with proceeds going to epilepsy research.
Miguel Cervantes, who plays Alexander Hamilton in the Chicago run of "Hamilton," and castmates will perform "'Til The Calm Comes" at a CURE (Citizens United for Research In Epilepsy) benefit Monday night at Navy Pier, 600 E. Grand Ave.
The song, an original composition, will be released on iTunes on Monday with all sale proceeds benefiting the research organization.
The cause is personal to Cervantes, whose baby daughter Adelaide suffers from epilepsy. The condition afflicts more than 750,000 children across the United States, Cervantes said in a promotional video for the non-profit last fall. Last year's dinner raised nearly $2 million.
The benefit dinner starts at 6 p.m. Monday. Individual tickets are $400 each while tables can be reserved for $5,000. Visit the dinner's website for tickets and more information.
