One of the show’s producers, Cameron Mackintosh said: “I feel extraordinarily fortunate that Lin [Manuel Miranda] and my friend Jeffrey Seller, the show’s original producer, have entrusted me with their wonderful musical in the UK and Ireland.”

“The London production opened in 2017 at the Victoria Palace, a theatre I completely rebuilt to house Hamilton, where it continues to play and has proved to be as big a success as the Broadway original. So, I am thrilled that it is time to put together a second British national touring company to bring this great show to our leading cities.”

Hamilton is notable for featuring all non-white actors as the Founding Fathers and other historical figures as a way to weave the tale of “America then, as told by America now”.

It draws heavily from hip-hop, soul and R&B in its soundtrack which features “My Shot”, “Aaron Burn, Sir”, “Right Hand Man” and “The Story of Tonight”.

Since its sold-out debut run on Broadway in 2015 the musical has received a record-breaking 16 Tony Award nominations, winning 11 including Best Musical.

It has gone on to open in cities across the globe, including a hugely successful West End run.

In 2020 the release of the original Broadway production premiered on streaming platform Disney+.

It became one of the most streamed films of 2020 and went on to be nominated for two Golden Globe Awards, including Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.
