Lin-Manuel Miranda’s revolutionary show about America’s “forgotten” Founding Father, Alexander Hamilton, ignited a revolution in the American musical. With its exciting, ethnically diverse cast, the Australian production is helping change the lie of the land in theatre here as well. The rapped-and-sung-through show, which blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway in its exhilarating, addictive score, proved a sensation when it opened on Broadway in 2015. If you love musicals, make sure you’re In the Room Where it Happens.
Limelight Editor’s Choice
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. Hamilton has also received an unprecedented special citation from the Kennedy Centre Honours.
