Hamilton makes a welcome comeback

Following its hugely successful Australian premiere in 2021, the ground-breaking musical Hamilton will make its eagerly awaited return to Sydney this July.

The 2024 Australian production is led by Jason Arrow, as Alexander Hamilton.

Hamilton is the cultural touchstone that seamlessly blends history with hip-hop, R&B, soul, pop and music theatre as it explores the story of America’s “Ten-dollar founding father” from being orphaned in the Caribbean, to becoming George Washington’s right hand man, to becoming the architect of American finance.

Written by visionary creator Lin-Manuel Miranda with direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbueler and musical direction by Alex Lacamoire, Hamilton premiered on Broadway in 2015 and went on to win 11 Tony Awards including Best Musical, eight Olivier Awards, a Grammy and the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Hamilton became an instant success when it opened in Australia before the COVID-19 pandemic saw the doors to theatres around the country close. The months-long lockdowns meant thousands of Sydneysiders missed out on the opportunity to be in the room where it happens.

But in July the show returns with a exciting mix of cast members from the original Australian production along with some brand new stars.

Returning to lead the production is Australia’s Alexander Hamilton, Jason Arrow, who originated the role in Australia and has been starring in Hamilton’s first-ever international tour. As his wife Eliza, Australian music theatre star Vidya Makan joins the production; and making his music theatre debut, Googoorewon Knox plays George Washington.

Hamilton is presented in Australia by legendary local theatre producer Michael Cassel, who also brought Harry Potter and the Cursed Child to our shores along with Les Misérables, Kinky Boots and the current smash hit getting audiences on their feet at the Sydney Lyric Theatre, & Juliet.

As the Hamilton curtain rises once again at the Sydney Lyric Theatre, audiences are invited to witness history in the making. Hamilton is more than just a musical; it’s a cultural event, a celebration of the power of art to inspire, educate and unite us all. So come, join the revolution, and experience the magic of Hamilton for yourself.

Hamilton will be playing at Sydney Lyric Theatre from July 30 2024. Book tickets via Ticketmaster.
