About Hamilton

Hamilton description

Hamilton is a musical about Alexander Hamilton, one of the USA's founding fathers and, by all accounts, a jolly good egg. The show's music, lyrics and book come from the talented Lin-Manuel Miranda and the plot is inspired by the excellent 2004 biography of the great man by respected historian Ron Chernow. The results have wowed critics and audiences alike.

The musical made a star-studded Off-Broadway début at The Public Theater in early 2015, where it sold like hot cakes and almost caused riots as people desperately tried to buy tickets. It soon won the 2015 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical plus seven more Drama Desk Awards.

After transferring to Broadway in August 2015 it sparked even more critical acclaim at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. The show's advance box office sales were record-breaking stuff. It has gathered a coveted Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album and a Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and has been nominated for an all-time record 16 Tony Awards. Wow.

Miranda worked extremely hard to create a host of show tunes you won't forget in a hurry, including the splendid Who lives, who dies, who tells your story. Lin-Manuel Miranda, who also stars in the show, was nominated for Best Actor, Best Book of a Musical and Best Score of a Musical, and the cast won seven nominations across four acting categories, beating the record 15 long held by The Producers and Billy Elliot.

Hamilton is already a national sensation in the USA, and it's completely sold out over there until the end of 2016. Apparently the US presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders love it, as do the Obamas. Michelle Obama praised it to the skies, insisting it was, “the best piece of art in any form that I have ever seen in my life”. Barack Obama called it an “incredible musical”.

Hamilton the Musical – The story

This is the life story of Alexander Hamilton. The score mashes up rap, R&B and operetta, creating an unmissable portrait of the man whose face graces the ten dollar bill, and without whom the USA would probably be a very different place. He made history, and this musical is set to do the same. As President Obama added, “It’s a story for all of us – about all of us.

The cast album was streamed online by literally millions of Americans. And all over the nation people are singing those tunes at work, at home, in the streets. Seldom has a stage musical scored such a massive hit with people of every age, gender and race. Premium tickets were on sale for over five hundred dollars at one stage, pricing many audience members out of the market completely, and tickets on the Black Market were, apparently, going for three times that much. The show's Daily Lottery for ten dollar tickets was so badly over-subscribed the lottery website crashed. All of which means this is probably going to end up one of the shows of the decade, and it's already being eagerly awaited in London's West End.

Talented actors, wonderful lighting enhance excellent show

Hamilton is a high energy historical show with strong actors with great voices on a stage set that is minimal but well staged. Movement and creative set changes were aided by the revolving stage. Superb lighting helps make the show. Some words were lost in the blocking for those of us in the high seats but I could follow the plot easily. Highly recommended.

An all round amazing show!

I’ve never been to see a west end musical before but from the very first sight of the set I was already amazed. Seeing the set I was immediately felt I was brought back in time to the 18th century. The music and performance from the actors was phenomenal I was gripped from the opening scene untill the final word. Would strongly recommend to anyone wanting to go to a show for the first time.

Simultaneously vibrant and moving.

This was a highly talented cast telling a very moving story. It was challenging and thought provoking. I recommend reading the songs in advance of seeing the show as the pace is fast. There is great clarity on rap and song but so much content. I wanted to say - stop - did you just refer to Burnam Wood....Macbeth. biblical references too - packed with so much knowledge, history, analysis. I need to see this again - and perhaps again and will take more away with each successive viewing.

HAMILTON: The Musical that can stop traffic

by Phil Willmott | Wednesday, June 15 2016, 09:02

Hamilton The Musical - London I was in New York recently and decided to check out the smash hit musical Hamilton to see what all the fuss is about. No chance, I pulled every favour I could but no one could get me a ticket, the production is booked up solidly for at least the next year. But they do a daily on-line lottery. You have to register by a certain time and at 4pm you get an email letting you know if you've been successful or not. I imagined if I tried that every day for a week the odds were I'd win a ticket, I mean, how many other people would apply that much determination? Wrong again. 4pm brought disappointment every day.
