BEST AVAILIBILITY FROM OCTOBER 2018

Sweeping the Olivier Awards With Seven Wins!

It's the musical experience that has bowled over Broadway, an all out smash-hit epic that traverses the life of one Alexander Hamilton, one of America's Founding Fathers who took on the might of the British and won!

In recognition of its landmark status, it was awarded the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and scooped 11 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Score and many, many more.

Credited with being one of America's Founding Fathers and promoters of the U.S Constitution, the extraordinary life of Alexander Hamilton saw the man rise humble beginnings as an orphan in the West Indies to one of the most powerful men in George Washington's cabinet. But on the way he had to contend with many obstacles, a career fraught with drama and intrigue, sex scandals, warring loyalists and much more until finally meeting his end in a duel with one of his closest allies...
