Young, scrappy, and hungry for the biggest musical hit of the decade? Look no further than Hamilton…
Musicals have come a long way from Sondheim, and for proof of that, look no further than December 2017, when a little musical called Hamilton arrived at the Victoria Palace Theatre and turned the West End upside down. Now into its third year in London, Hamilton has become one of the hottest theatre tickets in town – and if you haven’t see it yet, we’ve conveniently got your tickets right here.
For those who’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, here’s what you need to know about the show. Hamilton tells the story of immigrant, writer, and politician Alexander Hamilton, who masterminds an unlikely rise to a crucial position amongst America’s founding fathers, helping to shepherd the US through revolution, independence, and the struggle to build a new nation.
However, that’s only half the story, for creator Lin-Manuel Miranda has given this underdog tale a winningly fresh spin via the use of a hip-hop and rap-influenced soundtrack, and casting only people of colour in the leads. It’s upbeat, refreshing, and – having seen it twice – I can reliably inform you that it more than lives up to the hype.
There’s absolutely nothing like Hamilton in the West End right now, so for your chance to catch this unforgettable show, get your tickets through Fever.
