Critical and international hit, Hamilton: An American Musical is finally making its way to our shores. Look, we all knew it was going to come to Australia at one point but the major debate was where it would premiere.
Whilst it would make an amazing announcement that against all expectations Adelaide has been the chosen, it would be a lie because our friends in Sydney will be the city that’ll host Hamilton.
Hamilton is slated to start showings in February 2021 at Sydney’s Lyric Theatre. The musical tells the story of Alexander Hamilton, one of America’s founding fathers. Instead of traditional storytelling however, it tells the story of Hamilton’s rise as an orphan to first treasurer of the United States, via the genres of rap, hip hop and R&B.
It’s won record-breaking awards, and even after five years it’s still selling out wherever it goes. The starting date is still pretty far away but keep your eyes peeled about cast updates. Head to their website for more info.
