Producers Jeffrey Seller and Cameron Mackintosh announced that Lin-Manuel Miranda's international hit musical Hamilton will launch its first U.K. tour November 11 at the Manchester Palace Theatre for a 15-week engagement through February 24, 2024.
The production will subsequently play Edinburgh's Festival Theatre February 28-April 27, 2024. Casting and additional venues will be announced at a later date.
Tickets for the first two stops will go on sale March 13 at HamiltonMusical.com.
Mackintosh says, “Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton is indisputably the most brilliant, ground-breaking, contemporary musical of modern times. I feel extraordinarily fortunate that Lin and my friend Jeffrey Seller, the show’s original producer, have entrusted me with their wonderful musical in the U.K. and Ireland. The London production opened in 2017 at the Victoria Palace, a theatre I completely rebuilt to house Hamilton, where it continues to play and has proved to be as big a success as the Broadway original. So, I am thrilled that it is time to put together a second British national touring company to bring this great show to our leading cities."
Hamilton, the story of founding father Alexander Hamilton, is directed by Thomas Kail and features choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, and is based on Ron Chernow’s biography of Alexander Hamilton. The musical also has scenic design by David Korins, costume design by Paul Tazewell, lighting design by Howell Binkley, sound design by Nevin Steinberg, and hair and wig design by Charles G. LaPointe.
The Olivier, Tony, and Grammy–winning Hamilton opened at the newly rebuilt and restored Victoria Palace Theatre in London in December 2017. The Broadway production continues at the Richard Rodgers Theatre.
