NEW YORK – Time has nearly run out to see the original “Hamilton” cast on Broadway, but a PBS special this fall on the Tony Award-winning musical will feature at least 15 minutes of performance footage with creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and his team.

PBS announced its “Great Performances” series episode featuring “Hamilton” months ago, but time has only increased its resonance. Since then, the show has won 11 Tonys, a Pulitzer Prize and a Grammy.

Miranda, who performs in the starring role, has also announced he’ll be leaving the show July 9. So will prominent cast members Leslie Odom Jr., who plays Aaron Burr, and Phillipa Soo, who portrays Eliza Schuyler.

All three, however, will be filmed and be part of the Oct. 21 PBS show, Beth Hoppe, PBS’ chief programming executive, said.
