Hailed by critics as “A reinvention of the musical” – Chicago Tribune and “A singular work of brilliance.” – Rolling Stone, HAMILTON has gone from theatrical rebel to cultural phenomenon. It is a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics and education.

Based on Ron Chernow’s acclaimed biography, HAMILTON has received an unprecedented special citation from the Kennedy Centre Honours. With book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda(whose previous hit “In The Heights” broke new ground in Musical Theatre), it tells the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton, featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway.

After its Off-Broadway premiere on February 17, 2015, at the Public Theater (where its brief engagement was sold out), the musical won eight Drama Desk Awards, including Outstanding Musical. It then transferred to the Richard Rodgers Theatre on Broadway, opening on August 6, 2015, where it received a record-breaking 16 nominations and won 11 awards, including Best Musical. It received the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The Broadway production was directed by Thomas Kail, choreographed by Andy Blankenbuehler, with musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire. The original cast featured Lin-Manuel himself, as Alexander Hamilton.

The Chicago production of Hamilton opened in October 2016. The West End production opened at the Victoria Palace Theatre in London in December 2017, winning seven Olivier Awards in 2018, including Best New Musical. The show toured the U.S three times from 2017-2020. And now, this Tony®, Grammy®, Olivier and Pulitzer Prize winning musical will open at the Sydney Lyric Theatre 17 March 2021.
