Following its world premiere at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Hamilton (Lewis) – a musical story about the most successful British F1 driver in the history of the sport Lewis Hamilton – will run at London’s King’s Head Theatre from 5 to 22 September 2018 (press night is 6 September 2018), directed by Benji Sperring.

Hamilton (Lewis) is the epic story of a self-starter, born and raised in Stevenage, who worked a lot harder, by being a lot faster. Discover the petrol-fuelled thrills and spills of the life of Hamilton (Lewis) then, as told by Hamilton (Lewis) now. Not in any way endorsed by Lin-Manuel Miranda… or Hamilton… (Lewis)… or the Pussycat Dolls.

The score, with music and lyrics by David Eaton (The Mikado, King Tut: A Pyramid Panto – King’s Head Theatre), blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway, while the new musical parody has a book by Fiona English (1127, Cambridge Junction, Greenbelt; and This is Happening, Greenbelt).

Sperring directed the musicals The Toxic Avenger (Southwark Playhouse, Edinburgh Fringe 2017 and West End) and Shock Treatment (King’s Head Theatre).
