Meet the Current Cast of HAMILTON on Broadway!
They're young, scrappy and hungry.
Hamilton is ready to blow us all away as they enter their fourth year of their monumental Broadway run! Take a look at the current cast that is burning up the Richard Rodgers stage.
HAMILTON premiered on Broadway in August 2015 and took home 11 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album. It is also currently playing in San Francisco, Chicago, on tour in the US and in London's West End, where it opened in December 2017 winning seven Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical and Outstanding Achievement in Music.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 was the new nation's first Treasury Secretary. Hamilton'S score blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B, and Broadway - the story of America then, as told by America now.
