Jeffrey Seller and Cameron Mackintosh, producers of the West End production of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton, are delighted to announce that from 19 August 2021 the show will resume performances at the Victoria Palace Theatre.

For all its considerable entertainment value, there are some vitally important messages here, about politics, society and the fragility of our institutions – messages that, 246 years after the birth of the world’s greatest modern democracy, are perhaps never more urgent than now. History has its eyes on us all, as one of Miranda’s lyrics reminds us.
My verdict? A top-class transfer of an all-American musical, spreading Alexander Hamilton’s story ever further – you won’t want to miss your shot to be in the room where it happens!
Thanks to the power and brilliance of the London cast, all comparisons with Broadway fade away. The entire company pump in soul, heart and skill to the glorious narrative created by Miranda, musical supervisor Alex Lacamoire and director, Thomas Kail.
