Hamilton makes its Australian premiere at the Sydney Lyric Theatre, in a new production beginning March 17, 2021. Final casting for the Australian company is underway with an announcement to be made later in the year.
Hamilton premiered on Broadway in August 2015 to wide critical and audience acclaim. The show has won Tony ®, Grammy ®, and Olivier Awards, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and an unprecedented special citation from the Kennedy Center Honors.
Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway, Hamilton has taken the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theatre – a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics and education.
With book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, Hamilton is based on Ron Chernow’s acclaimed biography.
The Hamilton creative team previously collaborated on the 2008 Tony Award-winning Best Musical In the Heights.
