Hamilton

Overview

Lin-Manuel Miranda's multi-award-winning, record-breaking musical Hamilton plays in London’s West End at the newly refurbished Victoria Palace Theatre, originally opening to critical acclaim in November 2017. After an unprecedented sold-out run on Broadway, the musical has become one of the most fan-loved, critically-admired and award-winning musicals ever created.

Hamilton is based on the life of Alexander Hamilton, with music, a book and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda. Miranda best-known to London audiences for his first musical In The Heights, which premiered at the Southwark Playhouse in 2014 and later transferred to the temporary King’s Cross Theatre. Miranda’s distinctive style of fusing rap, hip-hop and the music of Latin America has revolutionised the modern musical. With his follow-up Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda has reached new heights, redefining the modern musical.

The musical follows the life of Alexander Hamilton, who, after growing up as an orphan, went on to become George Washington’s right-hand man. As a rebel, a war hero, a loving husband and adulterer, and founder of the US Treasury, Alexander Hamilton’s life had some sweet pickings for any writer looking to adapt the biography into a musical. With George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr all making their mark in this ingenious political masterpiece, Hamilton is a thrilling retelling of American history.

Hamilton originally premiered off-Broadway at the Public Theatre in February 2015, where it enjoyed an acclaimed sold-out run, before transferring to the Richard Rodgers Theatre on Broadway, where it continues to sell-out performances, making it one of the most in demand shows ever.
