Hamilton'sOpening Night on Broadway
The musical biography of American founding father Alexander Hamilton covers the years of the American Revolution and includes three cameo appearances by King George III (Jonathan Groff) singing "You'll Be Back." The show opened Aug. 6 to once-in-a-generation raves. Read them here.
The paper quoted Mackintosh saying "I think there’s every intention for it to come to London." Mackintosh collaborated with Hamilton lead producer Jeffrey Seller to bring the musical Avenue Q to the U.K.
The paper also quoted creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda as saying: "We’re hoping it will happen sooner rather than later. My wife is always trying to get me to other countries so I would be honoured to open the show in London."
