The show dominated the 70th Annual Tony Awards on Sunday where it won 11 awards including Best Musical, Best Original Score, and Best Book Of A Musical.
“The support Hamilton has received from our British fans has been incredible – I have been reminded of their love, which is just as our King George would want it to be! I’m thrilled the show will be shared with UK audiences starting in the fall of 2017 at the beautiful Victoria Palace Theatre,” said Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Hamilton is the story of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and was the new nation’s first Treasury Secretary. Hamilton’s score blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway – the story of America then, as told by America now.
Hamilton is produced by Jeffrey Seller, Sander Jacobs, Jill Furman, The Public Theater and Cameron Mackintosh. Cameron Mackintosh said, “Just occasionally in life the stars align as they have now, and I have the perfect theatre available for one of the most brilliant, original and entertaining musicals I have ever seen. The moment I saw Lin Manuel’s remarkable Hamilton I knew that this was a musical with a phenomenal story and score which will be performed somewhere in the world as long as people want to go to the theatre. To be working with my friend Jeffrey Seller again is an added bonus. My major redevelopment of the Victoria Palace will bring new life to a much loved building and I have no doubt Hamilton will do the same for the musical theatre“.
