It’s one of the most creative pieces in the world of musical theatre. Hamilton won’t be coming to Australian stages until 2021, six years after its original Broadway debut. It’s truly a groundbreaking piece of theatre that removes itself from the sometimes homogenous scene of predictable casting and crowd pleasing ticket sellers that are all too often imported from Broadway and the West End.
If there’s anything missing from the Australian theatre scene this could be the production that unlocks and changes the rationale behind casting, original works and musical theatre as a whole, if executed with the cultural precision it needs.
The uniqueness of this production tells the story of American founding father, Alexander Hamilton set to a score of rap and hip hop derived from a historical biography.
