Hamilton: The Musical - Disney+
Experience the original Broadway production on Disney+
Disney+'s small screen version is a live capture of a stage performance shot on Broadway with the entire OG cast including Miranda himself as Alexander Hamilton.
Disney+ launches the musical to homes around the world on Friday 3 July.
Winner of 11 Tony Awards and 7 Olivier Awards including Best Musical, the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and the 2016 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album, HAMILTON has smashed box office records and has become a cultural sensation.
HAMILTON, currently playing at the Victoria Palace Theatre in London has book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, is directed by Thomas Kail, with choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler and musical direction and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, and is based on Ron Chernow's biography of Alexander Hamilton.
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 was the new nation's first Treasury Secretary. The score blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway - the story of America then, as told by America now.
HAMILTON'S creative team previously collaborated on the 2008 Tony Award-winning Best Musical "In the Heights", which is currently enjoying a very successful run at London's Kings Cross Theatre.
HAMILTON is produced in London by Jeffrey Seller, Sander Jacobs, Jill Furman, The Public Theater and Cameron Mackintosh.
When we dropped the news last year that Hamilton was headed down under, you were understandably shook.
The multi award-winning musical, created by Lin-Manuel Miranda, was initially due to head to our shores in March 2021.
But with a little thing called COVID getting in the way, that's on the back burner for now. Fortunately, there's still a chance to see the ground-breaking hip hop musical, and you don't even need to max out your credit card for it. Hype up, because Hamilton the movie is coming direct to your lounge.
That's right, Disney+ have just confirmed they're bringing the 11-time-Tony Award, GRAMMY Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning stage musical to homes around the world on Friday 3 July.
The small screen version isn't an adaption of Hamilton, but a live capture of a stage performance shot on Broadway with the entire OG cast including Miranda himself as Alexander Hamilton.
It had originally been slated for a theatrical release on 15 October 2021, so Disney+ have done us a serious solid releasing it over a year early.
So, hit up your musical-loving pals and enjoy a night at the theatre... while still in your PJs.
