Hamilton premiered on Broadway in August 2015 to wide critical and commercial acclaim and has had successful runs in London’s West End, Australia, Germany, and recently opened in New Zealand. It will premiere in the Philippines before its Abu Dhabi debut.

Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway, Hamilton has taken the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theater—a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics, and education.

With book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, Hamilton is based on Ron Chernow’s acclaimed biography, and is the story of America then told by America now.
