Folks, we have some big news, arguably the biggest entertainment news of the entire year. Yes, even bigger than Endgame and Game of Thrones.
Hamilton, the hit Broadway show is coming to Australia in 2021!
Excuse me for a sec..
Okay, I’m good now.
Anyway, the hit 2015 Broadway show that’s captured pop-culture’s imagination over the last few years will premiere in a new production beginning March 2021 in Sydney’s Lyric Theatre.
The original Broadway show’s producer Jeffrey Seller and Australian producer Michael Cassel will be working together on this new production, as well as the show’s creator Lin-Manuel Miranda because you can’t have Hamilton without him onboard.
Now there’s a bit of a wait before Hamilton gets here as casting for the show is scheduled to begin from August 2019. If there’s a time to listen to the Hamilton soundtrack again and get the lyrics to “My Shot’ down pat, now’s the time because you don’t want to miss your shot.
In case you need a reminder on how big Hamilton is, it copped critical-acclaim from everyone when it premiered back in 2015, winning 11 Tony Awards, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album while securing its spot in pop-culture for years to come.
For those who have been waiting forever for the show to arrive, here’s my question for you: Who lives, who dies, who’s getting tickets?
