The West End production of Hamilton will reopen from 19 August at the Victoria Palace Theatre.

Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda said of the musical's reopening: "For over a year the lights on the West End have been dark and our friends, family and colleagues on and off the stage have been out of work. It is with tremendous gratitude that we announce the return of Hamilton to London's Victoria Palace Theatre this August. We will safely gather to tell this story again. We'll be back."

Dramatising the life and career of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, Hamilton portrays American history to a mash-up of hip-hop, R&B and soul songs. Hamilton transferred to the West End in December 2017, winning seven Olivier Awards including best new musical.

Casting for Hamilton in London is to be announced. Prior to the show's suspension in March 2020, the Hamilton cast included Karl Queensborough as Alexander Hamilton, Simon-Anthony Roden as Aaron Bur and Gavin Spokes as King George III.

In a five star review of Hamilton for, "This show may be about history, but it also makes history itself: not just in the freshness and vivacity of its rap-based score that could come from the charts today, but also in the colour-blind diversity of its cast. It's also impossible to take your eyes off the amazing dance ensemble who move with utter fluidity."
