When Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico in September, 2017, the island was devastated.

More than a year later, the island has made tremendous strides toward recovery, especially in tourism.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator and original star of the hit musical "Hamilton," brought the show to San Juan.

It will be up for a limited run to raise funds for the island and promote the power of tourist spending.

Business Insider reports Miranda is resuming the titular role in a special, three-week run of "Hamilton".

The US Island is predicted to struggle monetarily for many years to come, making tourism more vital than ever.

A quarter of tickets to Hamilton are available for $10, but prices range up to $5,000.
