Musical telling the story of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and helped shape the very foundations of the America we know today.

The Broadway hit based on Ron Chernow’s biography of Alexander Hamilton comes to London.

Victoria Palace [West End]

“Stunning London production of Lin-Manuel Miranda's intricate and revelatory hip hop musical... Westman conjures it all.”

Tim Bano (The Stage, Time Out)

“A bona fide game-changer... Wonderfully liberating and joyous... A magnificent achievement... On no account is this to be missed”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“Full of energy and character, lyrical dexterity and subversive humour... Grabs your ears... The cast is magnificent.”

Neil Norman (Express, The Stage)

“Exhilarating, game-changing musical... What’s brilliant about the show is its scintillating fusion of form and content.”

Sarah Hemming (Financial Times)

“A rollercoaster... the fervour and excitement of revolution... What is astonishing is how well the form fits the subject.”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Does Hamilton live up the hype - and will it appeal to British audiences? Yes, and yes again... A blisteringly great night out.”

Marianka Swain (Broadway World, Arts Desk)

“An artistic sophistication that makes most of its British counterparts look like they’re mumbling into their shoes... Wow.”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Stupendously good... If anything... actually better than the hype suggests... Ferociously enjoyable... A brilliant hybrid.”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“A heart-breaking work of staggering genius that changes the form of musical theatre for ever... Unfolds fluently and fast.”

Sarah Crompton (What's On Stage, Guardian)

“High expectations ... it fulfils every one... Marvellous: different, daring, joyful and intelligent... Performed superbly.”

Libby Purves (TheatreCat, Times)

“History in the remaking... stampeding towards us with the news that the past need no more be male, pale and stale.”

Ann Treneman (Times)

“A massive achievement – A vast, questing, complex work of art that brings past and present into electrifying collision.”

Sam Marlowe (The Times, The Stage, Time Out, Arts Desk)

“Expands your heart and concentrates your brain by deliciously stretching your ears... A musical of infinite dexterity.”

Susannah Clapp (The Observer)

“A knockout, and its British cast is superb... Making 18th-century politics seem as explosively immediate as a rap battle.”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)

“A gamechanger... almost entirely sung, powered by the angular, insistent rhythms of hip hop... brimming with singalong melodies ”

Claire Allfree (Metro, Telegraph)

“So bravely different, so stylishly rule-breaking and so goddamn catchy, it’s impossible not to be won over by its innate charm.”

Adam Bloodworth (Metro)
