The Revolution Comes to London: HAMILTON Will Open at Victoria Palace Theatre in October 2017!

After much speculation, Lin-Manuel Miranda's Hamilton will officially hit the West End next year.

According to The Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye, the 16-time Tony nominated musical will open at London's Victoria Palace Theatre in October 2017. Tickets will go on sale this October.

Bamigboye also reports that Cameron Mackintosh's Delfont Mackintosh Theatres is expected to spend approximately £30 million to refurbish the theater in anticipation of HAMILTON's first bow.

The production is expected to launch its website this Monday, 13 June, with priority ticket information coming simultaneously.

Producer Oskar Eustis told the Evening Standard in 2015, "I promise we will bring Hamilton to London," while creator and star Miranda said, "We're hoping it will happen sooner rather than later. My wife is always trying to get me to other countries so I would be honored to open the show in London."

The new musical Hamilton has book, music and lyrics by Tony and Grammy Award-winning composer Lin-Manuel Miranda, who also plays the title role. The musical is directed by Thomas Kail, with choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler and music direction and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire. Hamilton is inspired by Ron Chernow's biography "Alexander Hamilton."

The cast of Hamilton is comprised of Lin-Manuel Miranda (Alexander Hamilton), Daveed Diggs (Marquis De Lafayette, Thomas Jefferson), Renée Elise Goldsberry (Angelica Schuyler),Christopher Jackson (George Washington), Rory O'Malley (King George), Jasmine Cephas Jones (Peggy Schuyler, Maria Reynolds), Javier Muñoz (Hamilton alternate), Okieriete Onaodowan (Hercules Mulligan, James Madison), Leslie Odom, Jr. (Aaron Burr), Anthony Ramos (John Laurens, PhilipHamilton) and Phillipa Soo (Eliza Hamilton).

HAMILTON is the acclaimed new musical about the scrappy young immigrant Alexander Hamilton, the $10 Founding Father who forever changed America with his revolutionary ideas and actions. During his life cut too short, he served as George Washington's chief aide, was the first Treasury Secretary, a loving husband and father, despised by his fellow Founding Fathers and shot to death by Aaron Burr in their legendary duel.
