They’ll tell the story of tonight: the award-winning production of Hamilton has announced that 10 new cast members will join the show for its second year at the Victoria Palace Theatre.

The Olivier Award-nominated Jamael Westman will continue as Alexander Hamilton, while original London cast member Sifiso Mazibuko will step up to play arch nemesis Aaron Burr from 3 December.

Joining the Hamilton company are Allyson Ava-Brown as Angelica Schuyler, Dom Hartley-Harris as George Washington, and Jon Robyns as King George, while original cast member Courtney-Mae Briggs will switch roles to play Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds.

Rachelle Ann Go continues as Eliza Hamilton, along with Tarinn Callender as Hercules Mulligan/James Madison, Jason Pennycooke as Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson, and Cleve September as John Laurens/Philip Hamilton.

The Hamilton ensemble will comprise continuing members Jade Albertsen, Curtis Angus, Stephenson Ardern-Sodje, Johnny Bishop, Jack Butterworth, Kelly Downing, Leslie Garcia Bowman, Gregory Haney, Leah Hill, Barney Hudson, Waylon Jacobs, Aaron Lee Lambert, Phoebe Liberty, Sharon Rose, Alexzandra Sarmiento and Lindsey Tierney. They will be joined by Robson Broad, Lisa Darnell, Joe Griffiths-Brown, Sinead Long, Emile Ruddock and Ellena Vincent.

As the role of Hamilton is certainly ‘Non-Stop’, between 17 December 2018 and 12 January 2019, Ash Hunter will portray Alexander Hamilton. In the second year cast, the role will be played by Karl Queensborough at certain performances.

Hamilton opened at the Victoria Palace Theatre in December 2017 to ripples of acclaim, winning 7 at this year’s Olivier Awards with Mastercard ceremony. The Lin-Manuel Miranda musical tells the story of America’s forgotten Founding Father, through a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway.

Relive their performance at the ceremony below.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
