Go back a few months, I wrote an article about the phenomenon that is Hamilton, the musical that told the life of Alexander Hamilton and the independence of the United States of America back in the 1700s. Since then, has the hype died down? No it hasn’t and thank God it hasn’t.
On Monday 16th January, pre-sale tickets were finally released for Hamilton’s West End run at the Victoria Palace. This was long-awaited by myself and many massive fans of the American musical, and the tickets were going and going quickly! Don’t worry, I got mine and in December, I will be writing up a full review of the show on the night of the 18th (funnily, the night of my 19th birthday).
With its current run on Broadway, as well as in Chicago, and plans to take it to more and more and more countries and theatres, I can’t see Hamilton dying off anytime soon. People are seeing it repeatedly, and most are saving just for their one and only show.
However you are planning your experience, enjoy it. I wish everyone happiness with their Hamilton show/s; and those waiting for general sale on 30th January, I wish you the best of luck!
I hope to see you all in the room where it happened!
