Hamilton

About the show

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s historical rap musical Hamilton barely needs any introduction. With 11 Tony Awards including Best Musical, a massively successful West End transfer and acclaim from Barbara Streisand and Barack Obama, this radical show about the founding of America is one of the hottest tickets on Broadway.

Hamilton is the story of scrappy young dreamer Alexander Hamilton. An immigrant and orphan who rose to become one of the Founding Fathers, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s exuberant musical follows the political powerhouse who changed America forever. With its musical medley of classic show tunes, rap, R&B and pop, Hamilton is notable for its color-conscious casting and pro-immigration message which challenges the notion of what it means to be American.

Austin Scott currently stars as Alexander Hamilton, with credits including One Day Off-Broadway. Denée Benton plays his wife, Eliza Hamilton, having previously received a Tony Award nomination for Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812. Other cast members include Daniel Breaker (The Book of Mormon, Shrek<\em>) as Aaron Burr and Euan Morton (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) as King George.

Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote the book, music and lyrics for Hamilton, inspired by a 2002 biography, and also originated the role of Alexander Hamilton during workshop performances. His many accolades include a Pulitzer Prize, three Grammy Awards, three Tony Awards and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. His other writing and acting credits include In the Heights, Disney’s Moana, and Mary Poppins Returns.

Hamilton is directed by Thomas Kail, who received a Tony Award nomination for In the Heights, and choreographed by Tony and Olivier Award-winner Andy Blankenbuehler (In the Heights, Bandstand).

After making its Off-Broadway debut at the Public Theater in 2015, Hamilton was immediately hailed as a sold-out success. With international acclaim, universal praise and a truly revolutionary story at its heart, Hamilton is currently playing at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York.
