Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Oliver and Tony Award-sweeping modern musical masterpiece Hamilton continues to take the refurbished Victoria Palace Theatre by storm.

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. Having only graduated from RADA in 2016, Jamael Westman stepped into the shoes of the show’s popular creator the following year to play the eponymous role.

The production claimed claimed seven Olivier Awards with Mastercard at the 2018 ceremony (having been nominated for a record-setting thirteen), adding to its glittering haul of eleven Tony Awards on Broadway (from an also record-setting sixteen nominations).

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.

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 on both sides of the Atlantic. “Do not throw away your shot”: catch this spectacular West End hit at the Victoria Palace Theatre.
