Hamilton fans are overjoyed, and they certainly have very good reasons to feel that way.
This is because Lin-Manuel Miranda’s multi award-winning cultural phenomenon Hamilton is coming to Ireland for the very first time. It will run for nine weeks at Bord Gáis Energy Theatre from 17 September – 16 November 2024.
Hamilton tells the story of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. The score blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway – the story of America then, as told by America now. The production is the winner of 11 Tony Awards including Best Musical, 7 Olivier Awards, the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 2016 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album.
Hamilton has book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, is directed by Thomas Kail, with choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire and is based on Ron Chernow’s biography of Alexander Hamilton.
