What is Hamilton about?

Performing in London after its award-winning run on Broadway, Hamilton tells the story of Alexander Hamilton, one of America's founding fathers.

Through hip-hop music and innovative storytelling, the musical explores Hamilton's journey from an orphaned immigrant to George Washington's right-hand man and eventually the architect of America's financial system. The show also delves into Hamilton's personal and political conflicts, including his infamous rivalry with Aaron Burr, which ultimately led to his tragic demise in a duel.
