HAMILTON Could Be Headed to Asia, Mexico, Paris, Germany, and on an Australian Tour!
Hamilton seems to have taken the whole world by storm but now, the show is planning to actually travel the world.
According to France 24, Hamilton is planning its first non-English production, as well as tours in Europe and Asia. This news comes after the show's recent announcement that it will launch a production in Sydney in early 2021. Producer Jeffrey Seller is now saying that this production will tour Australia, before heading to Asia.
The team is also working on a German-language version of the show, and Seller says that a production is Mexico City, possibly in Spanish, could also happen, as well as an English-language production in Paris.
Seller says that, even though Hamilton is an American story, "My hope is that our story is resonant to people all over the world as a story of revolution, as a story of ambition, as a story of self-realization."
