Lin-Manuel Miranda’s multi-award-winning cultural phenomenon Hamilton is coming to Manchester Palace Theatre for a 15-week season from Saturday 11th November 2023.

Hamilton is the story of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and helped shape the very foundations of the America we know today. The score blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway – the story of America then, as told by America now.

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.

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.

REVIEW of Hamilton…
I suspect the reason behind such a response lies in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s lyrics, intelligent and poetic, and delivered by a cast in which there are no weak links. Michael Jibson as King George III is utterly hilarious, mocking the newly-formed, disorganised United States and expressing puzzlement that George Washington is not to remain as head of state for life. Rachelle Ann Go, already familiar to London audiences for her performance in Miss Saigon, portrays Hamilton’s wife Eliza with pathos and passion. Eliza’s sister Angelica Schuyler (Rachel John) is mesmerising, with wisdom and wit that ensured she got on well with the fervently intellectual and ambitious Hamilton, except when there is good reason for a dose of animosity.

The music may be contemporary, but the costumes – and wigs – wouldn’t look out of place in a Royal Shakespeare Company production. A stage revolves, whilst bringing Les Misérables to mind, served as a metaphor for the constant changes in the “young, scrappy and hungry” United States.

The hype is justified, and the running time felt considerably shorter than it was. Hamilton is an extraordinary show with a diverse and talented company. I was encouraged and exhilarated by this slick, energetic and relentlessly compelling musical.

Public transport and parking are important issues for Manchester, as they are for any major city. While the city has made significant progress in improving its public transport infrastructure and encouraging sustainable transport, there is still more work to be done.

Hamilton is at Palace Theatre Manchester from Saturday 11th November, 2023 to Saturday 24th February, 2024.
