Hit musical Hamilton will resume performances in London’s West End from August.
A record breaking, award-winning smash hit, Hamilton tells the story of American Founding Father Alexander Hamilton.
With music, lyrics and a book by Lin-Manuel Miranda, the musical premiered Off-Broadway in 2015 before moving to Broadway and opening in London’s West End in December 2017.
Following a forced closure due to the pandemic, the show has confirmed it will be reopening at the Victoria Palace Theatre from 19 August 2021.
Casting for the reopening is to be announced.
Creator Miranda said: “For over a year the lights on the West End have been dark and our friends, family and colleagues on and off the stage have been out of work.
“It is with tremendous gratitude that we announce the return of Hamilton to London’s Victoria Palace Theatre this August. We will safely gather to tell this story again. We’ll be back.”
Producer Cameron Mackintosh commented: “The last year has been unbelievably hard for everyone but particularly so for the Theatre profession. I have been moved and inspired by the resilience and camaraderie of so many practitioners from all aspects of our industry who have taken on any job so that they and their families could survive.
“I am therefore delighted to announce that our wonderful company will be back in The Room Where It Happens from 19 August at the Victoria Palace Theatre, now that the Prime Minister has told us that we are on track to reopen ‘cautiously but irreversibly’ this summer. No need to Wait For It any longer!”
