Hamilton Broadway Tickets:
One of the most unique and surprising ideas to grace Broadway in a long time, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton tells the story of Alexander Hamilton, the first United States Secretary of the Treasury and one the founding fathers of America. Unusual topic matter for a musical as is, Hamilton goes several steps further. Despite being set in the 18th century, the venture abandons traditional musical theatre material in favour of a modern sound fuelled by R&B, rap, and hip-hop.

Questlove, who produced the soundtrack for the show, called it the “first authentic hip-hop show”. Lin-Manuel Miranda is no pop artist trying to shoehorn their work into a musical, either; having worked on Cats, Les Misérables and The Phantom of the Opera, three of the longest-running musicals of all time, Lin-Manuel Miranda knows the formula inside out – and is therefore in a far better position to know exactly when, and how far, to deviate from it to produce something truly original.
“One of the most brilliant and original shows I’ve seen in a long, long time”
– The Telegraph
From its opening number to its sung-through progression, the music of Hamilton is punchy and infectious, drawing audiences into a retelling of history that is instantly a hundred times more accessible to the modern listener than it otherwise could have been. Not only is the music a reflection of America today – so is the very deliberately multi-ethnic cast. The leading role of Hamilton is played by two actors of Hispanic origin, whilst the rest of the roles, all white men, are filled by a mixture of men and women and non-white actors. The show represents America today whilst telling the story of its beginnings, and in doing so, resonates with everyone who sees it.
“With a show this brash and nimble, this historically engaged and startlingly contemporary, Miranda confirms his promise as one hell of a teller”
– The Guardian
Hamilton; daring, bold, imaginative, and emotive, is a truly spectacular feat of modern musical theatre. Do not miss your chance to see the most-hyped show of the decade – book your tickets now while they last!!
