Hamilton on Broadway Information

The Hamilton musical is the smash hit of the century. After premiering off Broadway at the Public Theater in February 2015 for a sold-out limited engagement, Lin-Manuel Miranda's juggernaut musical quickly made the leap uptown and began previews on Broadway on July 13, 2015, and opened to rave reviews on August 6. One year later, Hamilton received a record-breaking 16 Tony Award nominations and tied with The Producers for most Tony wins with a total of 11, including Best Musical. The original Broadway cast recording reached number 3 on the Billboard charts at one point, with its companion album, The Hamilton Mixtape, later debuting at the top spot in December 2016.

The show's creator and original leading man Lin-Manuel Miranda was already known in the Broadway theatre community for his work on In The Heights and Bring It On, but Hamilton made his name known in mainstream American pop culture. Hamilton also made top Broadway stars out of original cast members Leslie Odom, Jr., Renée Elise Goldsberry, and Daveed Diggs (who each took home a Tony Award in their respective categories), as well as Phillipa Soo, Christopher Jackson and Okieriete Onaodowan. All original principal cast members have now left the Broadway production, but that hasn't stopped fans who continue to flock to the theatre for sold-out performances.

Miranda's idea to tell the story of Alexander Hamilton through hip hop and R&B by a multi-racial cast captured the imagination of Americans coast to coast. For the younger demographics still at school, Hamilton would become the most revolutionary and exciting history lesson they would ever attend. The musical combines 18th-century-inspired, Tony-winning costumes by Paul Tazewell and slick, modern, Tony-winning choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler to create a fresh Broadway production to appeal to those outside the Broadway community and hardened theatregoers in equal measure.

If you are yet to witness "The Story of Tonight," then take your shot and secure your tickets today! Hamilton on Broadway is not to be missed.

Hamilton tells the story of Alexander Hamilton - a scrappy young immigrant who forever changed America. From bastard orphan to Washington's right hand man, rebel to war hero, loving husband caught in the country's first sex scandal to Treasury head who made an untrusting world believe in the American economy, Hamilton is an exploration of a political mastermind. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Eliza Hamilton, and lifelong Hamilton friend and foe, Aaron Burr, all attend this revolutionary tale of America’s fiery past told through the sounds of the ever-changing nation we’ve become.
