As soon as the word Hamilton is uttered in the West End, all ears prick up and everyone starts paying attention. The rap musical is a groundbreaking phenomenon that’s bringing a whole new audience to theatre. And that audience just can’t get enough of it. That’s why we were thrilled to be the first people to ever get a behind the scenes look at what goes into performing Hamilton either here in the West End or on Broadway.

The show doesn’t start when the curtain goes up. Each time Hamilton is performed, technicians, costumers, prop handlers, stage managers, and more, are setting things up so all the actors have to worry about is hitting their mark and those beats.

Not #satisfied? Don’t spend Monday asking ‘What Did I Miss?’ Tune in to the Olivier Awards with Mastercard this Sunday to watch an exclusive performance from the cast of Hamilton. To find out how to watch, click here.
