New West End Dates for Hamilton in 2017


first_img We have your latest West End Hamilton update. Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hit tuner is now scheduled to begin previews a little later than previously reported and will start performances in November 2017 at the renovated Victoria Palace Theatre. According to U.K. journalist Baz Bamigboye, opening night is set for December. As Miranda hinted to at the Tonys, he is still aiming to appear in London in some shows in 2018.Directed by Thomas Kail and featuring a book, music and lyrics by Miranda, Hamilton is inspired by the book Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow. The new musical follows the scrappy young immigrant who forever changed America, from bastard orphan to Washington’s right hand man, rebel to war hero, loving husband caught in the country’s first sex scandal to Treasury head who made an untrusting world believe in the American economy. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Eliza Hamilton and lifelong Hamilton friend and foe, Aaron Burr, all make appearances in the tuner about America’s fiery past.Hamilton is currently playing to standing room only audiences at Broadway’s Richard Rodgers Theatre and at Chicago’s PrivateBank Theatre.
