Reviews for the West End production of Hamilton are yet to be published. Below is a selection of reviews from the Broadway production.
"Hamilton is a magnificent tapestry where all the elements of theatre are called upon to be their very best...The end result is something much more than the story of one man. It is the story of how we each create our destiny and our mark on the world. You leave the theater thinking about what you would like to do that you have not done. You leave the theatre filled with possibility."
Tulis McCall for New York Theatre Guide
"Hamilton makes us feel the unstoppable, urgent rhythm of a nation being born.”

Hamilton tells the story of the American founding father and scrappy young immigrant who forever changed America: Alexander Hamilton. The musical follows him from bastard orphan to George Washington's right hand man and sees him journey from rebel to war hero. As he climbs up the political ladder we see how he goes from being a loving husband caught in the country's first sex scandal to Treasury head who made an untrusting world believe in the American economy.
In the aftermath of the deceleration of independence Hamilton explores this political mastermind alongside real-life characters such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Eliza Hamilton, and lifelong Hamilton friend and foe, Aaron Burr. Together, a diverse company tell this revolutionary tale of America’s fiery past using the sounds of the ever-changing nation America has become.
Latest Hamilton Tickets London News & Features
In a week where Hamilton has once again dominated the theatre news by winning 11 Tony Awards at the 2016 ceremony and also announced a London transfer to hit the West End in October 2017, there seems to be no stopping this juggernaut show. From humble beginnings off-Broadway, the show has played almost a full sell-out year on Broadway, enjoying some of the highest grosses ever seen, and has reportedly paid back its full initial investment.
The 11-time Tony Award winning musical Hamilton has now officially announced that it will open in London at the Victoria Palace Theatre in Victoria in October 2017, reopening the venue following a multi-million pound rebuild.
The musical, which last night won 11 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Book and Best Director, is one of the most successful musicals of all time, breaking numerous box office records on Broadway and becoming a cultural sensation.
The 70th Annual Tony Awards took place last night at New York's Beacon Theatre, hosted by Tony winner James Cordon. As predicted, smash hit musical Hamilton dominated the evening, picking up a total of 11 Tony Awards, but failed to break the record of 12 wins previously set by The Producers. As well as being featured during the telecast along with all the other musical nominees, it also had the honour to both open the show (introducing its host) and close the show.
Lin-Manuel Miranda is arguably the most in-demand personality on Broadway right now and he is looking set on world domination. With his smash hit musical Hamilton currently the hottest ticket in New York and set for a historic win at this weekend's Tony Awards following its 16 nominations, London audiences are desperate for the transfer to be officially announced.
