Not only did he pick up a glut of awards for his previous show In The Heights, Lin Manuel Miranda’s historical creation, Hamilton, reeped 9 Tonys at the 2016 ceremony held recently in New York. Now the multi award-winning, musical, whizz-kid, will see Hamilton open at the newly restored Victoria Palace Theatre in the Autumn of 2017.
Breaking all box office records on Broadway, Miranda’s show was inspired by Ron Chernow’s biography of America’s “forgotten” Founding Father, Alexander Hamilton, and features characters such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and, of course, their sworn enemy King George III.
Starring in his own musical as the titular Hamilton, it is yet to be confirmed whether Miranda will transfer his acting talents to UK shores when the show opens here in October 2017. Three other members of the Broadway cast also won Tony awards, so they too could make their West End debuts reprising their roles at the Victoria Palace which was recently vacated by Billy Elliot to undergo an 18 month extensive renovation project.
Hamiltonis arguably the hottest ticket in New York at the moment and we will have to wait to see if British audiences react in the same way as our cousins across the big pond.
Hamilton Theatre Breaks will be available to book as soon as tickets are made available to agents.
Although Hamilton Theatre Breaks won’t be available until 2018, we are happy to book hotel accommodation for those who buy tickets through the official sources.
