The West End has its fair share of Broadway hits entertaining the crowds and 2017 brings yet another in the form of Hamilton. But whilst many shows have boasted Broadway success ahead of a West End transfer, Hamilton is on a different level. The critically acclaimed show opened on Broadway in 2015 and after a wealth of rumours its West End future is now certain.
Sir Cameron Mackintosh produces the British version of the show and he does so as one of the biggest names in world musical theatre, so audiences on this side of the Atlantic can be sure that this is in safe hands.
The Hamilton of the title refers to historical figure Alexander Hamilton, one of the Founding Fathers of the Unites States of America, and this musical adds a hip-hop twist to the proceedings as audiences go back to the 18th century and witness how he stood by the side of George Washington and had a hand in shaping the American political system for hundreds of years. Born in the 1850s his achievements include the founding of the Federalist Party and a major newspaper and one look at his biography makes it clear that his story is ripe for the telling.
The show opened at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in August 2015 and went on to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Its success ensures that it will be talked-about for many years to come and as it now plays in the West End we can be sure of considerable attention on this side of the Atlantic as well.
Hamilton runs in the West End in 2017.
