Hamilton begins previews at the newly renovated Victoria Palace Theatre on Wednesday 6 December, opening on Thursday 21 December.
Following the story of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, a West Indies immigrant who became George Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War, the show follows his epic journey. Starting as a child born out of wedlock, his marriage to a wealthy heiress, Hamilton goes on to become America’s first Treasury Secretary, ultimately leaving a vast legacy in forging the country’s financial system.
Having only recently graduated from RADA in 2016, Jamael Westman will step into the shoes of the show’s popular creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda, to play the eponymous role. Stage and screen star Michael Jibson has been cast opposite him as King George.
