It’s finally happening. Hamilton is coming to Manchester’s Palace Theatre this November, kicking off it’s first UK tour!
The Olivier, Tony and Grammy and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical will have a 15 week run in Manchester from Saturday 11 November 2023 – Saturday 24 February 2024, with tickets going on sale on 13 March 2023 at 10am.
The show will then be followed by a run at the Festival Theatre, Edinburgh, with more venues to be announced.
Hamilton is the story of America then, told by America now. 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, Hamilton is based on Ron Chernow’s acclaimed biography. The creative team behind Hamilton has also previously collaborated on the Tony Award-Winning Best Musical In the Heights.
Legendary producer Cameron Mackintosh said today: “Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton is indisputably the most brilliant, ground-breaking, contemporary musical of modern times. I feel extraordinarily fortunate that Lin and my friend Jeffrey Seller, the show’s original producer, have entrusted me with their wonderful musical in the UK and Ireland.
“The London production opened in 2017 at the Victoria Palace, a theatre I completely rebuilt to house Hamilton, where it continues to play and has proved to be as big a success as the Broadway original. So, I am thrilled that it is time to put together a second British national touring company to bring this great show to our leading cities.
“Opening first in Manchester, followed by Edinburgh – not far from where the real story of Alexander Hamilton began in Ayrshire […] Tomorrow we start casting for a brilliant new company. We look forward to welcoming audiences to ‘the room where it happens’.”
You can book your tickets for this must-see show here from 13th March.
