Producers of the West End production of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton have revealed the full cast for the musical which resumes on 19th August at the Victoria Palace Theatre.
Karl Queensborough returns to play the title role of Alexander Hamilton with Simon-Anthony Rhoden as Aaron Burr, Ava Brennan as Angelica Schuyler, Sharon Rose as Eliza Hamilton, Trevor Dion Nicholas as George Washington and Waylon Jacobs as Marquis De Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson.
The rest of the main cast is made up of Emile Ruddock as Hercules Mulligan/James Madison, Khalid Daley as John Laurens/Phillip Hamilton, Emilie Louise Israel as Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds and Harry Hepple as King George. At certain performances the role of Alexander Hamilton will be played by Nuno Queimado.
Hamilton is the story of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and helped shape the foundations of the country.
The score blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway – the story of America then, as told by America now.
