About the musical
"Hamilton" premiered on Broadway in 2015 to wide critical and audience acclaim, and has been staged in London’s West End, Australia, Germany and New Zealand.
Featuring a score that blends the genres of hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway, the musical is based on Ron Chernow’s acclaimed biography, Alexander Hamilton, which follows the story of America's founding father and his involvement in the American Revolution.
It was created by American composer-playwright-actor Lin-Manuel Miranda, directed by Thomas Kail, and choreographed by Tony Award winner Andy Blankenbuehler.
The musical has received 11 Tony Awards, seven Olivier Awards, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 2016 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album.
“Hamilton's themes of hope, equality and the power of storytelling are universal. I'm thrilled to bring 'Hamilton' to Singapore and continue the show's global journey," said Michael Cassel, producer and chief executive officer of the "Hamilton" international tour.
