“A revolutionary musical, a thrilling salute to America’s immigrants” – The Guardian
Telling the story of the American Founding Fathers with the focus on lead character Alexander Hamilton, the Hamilton musical is a thrilling contemporary piece that brings ordinarily dry history to life in a way that has never previously been seen. Through the use of current hip-hop and R&B, Miranda injected the historical story with the youthful energy, excitement and vigour that befitted a tale of independence and freedom. The deliberately colour-conscious casting, with many roles played by non-white actors, does even more to make the messages of the musical relevant to today’s modern audience.
“Miranda’s synthesis of the historical material is phenomenal, as is his supple control of the diverse musical idioms…on no account is this to be missed” – The Independent
The number of awards Hamilton has scooped up say it all. The first musical to achieve 16 Tony nominations, of which it won an incredible 11, including Best Musical, Hamilton was also awarded the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama in addition to the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album the same year! The critical response has been almost universally positive – a positively unheard-of achievement for any Broadway musical.
“There are lots of shows with good songs. Hamilton is much more than that: it’s a game-changer. It’s a vital, revolutionary work that raises the musical theatre bar in the way Show Boat and West Side Story did in their day” – Radio Times
Hamilton has been nothing but a truly groundbreaking musical ever since it made it’s Off-Broadway first appearance in February 2015. No theatrical production in history has ever caused such a stir amongst critics and the general public alike – if you only see one show this year, make it this one.
