Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tony Award-sweeping modern musical masterpiece Hamilton makes its long-awaited London premiere at the refurbished Victoria Palace Theatre.

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.

A sung- and rapped- through musical, Hamilton’s score fuses hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway to tell the tale of a leading figure at a crucial juncture for America, with music, lyrics and book by the global sensation Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Although the demand for tickets is extremely high, audiences can participate in a £10 daily lottery, with more information available via the show’s website.

Having only recently graduated from RADA in 2016, Jamael Westman will step into the shoes of the show’s popular creator to play the eponymous role. Stage and screen star Michael Jibson has been cast opposite him as King George.

The musical was inspired by the book Alexander Hamilton, written by historian Ron Chernow. The show was the winner of a record-setting 11 Tony Awards including Best Musical (having been nominated for a record 16), the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and the 2016 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album, and a film adaptation based on the musical has been confirmed to be in the pipeline.

Hamilton’s juggernaut success has seen it garner swathes of critical and audience acclaim, as well as unprecedented advance box office success on Broadway. Hugely anticipated on these shores, it is a surefire, eagerly-awaited West End hit in the making.
