Hamilton is a Pulitzer Prize-winning musical that details the life of Alexander Hamilton, a Founding Father that was the first Secretary of the Treasury. Hamilton is by Lin-Manuel Miranda, and won seven Olivier Awards including Best New Musical.
In a five star review of Hamilton for LondonTheatre.co.uk, Hamilton "may be about history, but it also makes history itself… the freshness and vivacity of its rap-based score that could come from the charts today... It’s also impossible to take your eyes off the amazing dance ensemble who move with utter fluidity.”
Hamilton is one of many musicals posting a summer reopening date. Come From Away is due to reopen at the Phoenix Theatre later this week, as well as The Lion King and The Phantom of the Opera later this month. Find out when all London shows are reopening here.
