London Theatre Reviews

Lin-Manuel Miranda's Hamilton is a breakthrough musical that graced the stage in New York’s Off Broadway theatre The Public Theater on February 17, 2015. The musical officially premiered on Broadway at the Richard Rodgers Theatre on August 6, 2015, where it is still a popular attraction. The London production of Hamilton, which was produced by Cameron Mackintosh and opened on December 21, 2017, too, remains one of the most-watched shows at the West End.

One of the most potent reasons for the fame of Hamilton is its music — it is a sung-and-rapped-through biographical musical based on the life of Alexander Hamilton, one of America’s Founding Fathers. It talks about his life and his significant contribution to the American Revolution and the political history of the early United States.

All of the storytelling is through music, which takes inspiration from hip-hop, R&B, pop, soul, and traditional-style show tunes. Therefore, the Hamilton soundtrack has become one of the most recognisable in the industry. Featuring catchy songs like ‘My Shot’, ‘You'll be Back’, ‘The Room Where It Happened’, ‘Wait For It’, ‘Can't Say No to This’, and the eponymous ‘Alexander Hamilton’, the Hamilton soundtrack has something to offer everyone. Witness the fame of Hamilton's music at Victoria Palace Theatre. Check out the original Hamilton soundtrack here:
