Lin-Manuel Miranda’s multi-award-winning Hamilton is touring the UK and is coming to Oxford Road’s Palace Theatre for a 15-week run. Hamilton is the story of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and helped shape the very foundations of the America we know today. The score blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway – the story of America then, as told by America now.
The cast for Manchester includes Shaq Taylor as Alexander Hamilton; Sam Oladeinde as Aaron Burr; Gabriela Benedetti as Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds; KM Drew Boateng as Hercules Mulligan/James Madison; Daniel Boys as King George; Maya Britto as Eliza Hamilton; Aisha Jawando as Angelica Schuyler; DeAngelo Jones as John Laurens/Philip Hamilton; Billy Nevers as Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson and Charles Simmons as George Washington.
