About the show
The musical opened in England’s capital in December 2017, at the refurbished Victoria Palace Theatre after top reviews while playing in America.
Its creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, who orginated the role of Alexander Hamilton, retells the tale using rap music and lyrics that cleverly weave together a historic story that was largely untold until the release of the production.
