Pharmaceutical executive Dr. Loretta Itri has overseen clinical drug development in all of its phases. Outside of her career, Dr. Loretta Itri is a great lover of musical theater and an avid theater-goer. She saw the musical Hamilton in 2015.

Hamilton has been included in NewYork.com’s 10 Best Broadway Shows You Must See for two consecutive years. Based on Ron Chernow’s best-selling biography of one of America’s founding fathers and written by Tony winner Lin-Manuel Miranda, Hamilton experiments with a rap and hip-hop musical score. With an initial off-Broadway run at Public Theater, the musical has now moved to Broadway’s Richard Rogers Theater. It explores Alexander Hamilton’s life, telling the story of a feisty immigrant who ascends the ranks to become George Washington’s trusted aide.

The musical is top-billed by Lin-Manuel Miranda and is supported by a talented cast consisting of Leslie Odom Jr., Renee Elise Goldsberry, and Jonathan Groff.
