The Hamilton movie is on its way – from the cast to the first clips here’s all you need to know.
A filmed version of the hit stage musical will premiere on Disney+ on Friday, July 3.
Recorded at The Richard Rodgers Theatre on Broadway in June of 2016, the film is a leap forward in the art of “live capture” which transports its audience into the world of the Broadway show in a uniquely intimate way.
Combining the best elements of live theatre, film, and streaming, the result is a cinematic stage performance that is a wholly new way to experience “Hamilton.”
