Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Hamilton producers have today announced that the West End phenomenon will extend until the 15 December 2018. Tickets for performances between the 30 July and the 15 December will be on sale from 12:00 noon on Monday 29 January 2018.
It comes after the five star musical reopened the renovated Victoria Palace Theatre last month.
HAMILTON is the story of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and helped shape the very foundations of the America we know today. The score blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway – the story of America then, as told by America now.
The musical has book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, and is directed by Thomas Kail. The West End production stars Jamael Westman in the title role, joined by Christine Allado (Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds), Rachelle Ann Go (Eliza Hamilton), Tarinn Callender (Hercules Mulligan/James Madison), Michael Jibson (King George), Rachel John (Angelica Schuyler), Jason Pennycooke (Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson), Cleve September (John Laurens/Philip Hamilton), Giles Terera (Aaron Burr), and Obioma Ugoala (George Washington).
At certain performances, the role of Alexander Hamilton will be played by Ash Hunter.
