When we dropped the news last year that Hamilton was headed down under, you were understandably shook.
The multi award-winning musical, created by Lin-Manuel Miranda, is headed to our shores in March 2021. While there’s currently a waitlist, given the show still sells out on Broadway, scoring a ticket is no easy feat. Did we mention it racked up US$30 million in advance ticket sales prior to its OG opening…
But before you give up all hope of seeing the ground-breaking hip hop musical, we have excellent news and you don’t even need to max out your credit card for it. Hype up, because Hamilton the movie is coming to a screen near you.
That’s right, Disney have just confirmed they’re bringing the epic musical to theatres. The big screen version isn’t an adaption of Hamilton, but a live capture of a stage performance shot on Broadway with the entire OG cast including Miranda himself as Alexander Hamilton.
While we don’t have an exact date for Australia just yet, our mates in the US will be able to watch this Pulitzer Prize-winning musical in cinemas 15 October, 2021. Which means if you do miss out on Sydney tickets, you’ve got an excellent back up plan.
To join the waitlist, head here.
