In a press statement, Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda commented, “The support Hamilton has received from our British fans has been incredible—I have been reminded of their love, which is just as our King George would want it to be! I’m thrilled the show will be shared with UK audiences starting in the fall of 2017 at the beautiful Victoria Palace Theatre,”
Jeffrey Seller, its lead Broadway producer with Sander Jacobs, Jill Furman and The Public Theater, will be newly joined by Cameron Mackintosh, with whom he previously co-produced Avenue Q in the West End. Seller commented, “Hamilton is pure joy and I can't wait to share it with London audiences. I’m delighted to be partnering again with Cameron, from whom I've been learning my entire career. And we couldn't have a better home than the Victoria Palace Theatre, which will be a Palace, indeed, after its current renovation.”
Mackintosh added, “Just occasionally in life the stars align as they have now, and I have the perfect theatre available for one of the most brilliant, original and entertaining musicals I have ever seen. The moment I saw Lin Manuel's remarkable Hamilton I knew that this was a musical with a phenomenal story and score which will be performed somewhere in the world as long as people want to go to the theatre. To be working with my friend Jeffrey Seller again is an added bonus. My major redevelopment of the Victoria Palace will bring new life to a much loved building and I have no doubt Hamilton will do the same for the musical theatre.”
Casting and full dates are still to be confirmed.
