Brisbane to Host HAMILTON in 2023

The producers of HAMILTON have announced that Brisbane will be the third Australian city to be in the room where it happens when it welcomes the Tony®, Grammy®, Olivier and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical next year.

Following acclaimed seasons in both Sydney and Melbourne, performances at Brisbane's Lyric Theatre, QPAC will commence from 27 January 2023. The current Melbourne season must close Sunday 15 January.

Australian Producer Michael Cassel said: "We are ecstatic to be bringing Hamilton to Brisbane and to share this brilliant production with even more Australians. Queensland fans have been waiting so patiently and it will have been absolutely worth it when our talented cast heads north, bringing the revolution to the sunshine state."

Sami Afuni, who hails from Brisbane and recently joined the company taking on the roles of Hercules Mulligan/James Madison, shared his excitement to perform in his hometown next year: "It's an honour to join this incredible company, and to get to perform the show in my hometown is beyond anything I could have imagined. I know Brisbane will have a special connection with this inspiring story of 'rising up', and I am so grateful to be a part of that."

Tickets for the Brisbane season go on sale Monday 12 September 2022, with pre-sale tickets available from 10am, Monday 5 September 2022, accessible via the waitlist.

Tickets for the Melbourne season are currently on sale through to 18 December 2022 only through

HAMILTON premiered on Broadway in August 2015 to wide critical and audience acclaim. The show has won Tony®, Grammy®, and Olivier Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway, HAMILTON has taken the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theatre - a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics and education.

With book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, HAMILTON is based on Ron Chernow's acclaimed biography.

The HAMILTON creative team previously collaborated on the 2008 Tony Award-winning Best Musical In the Heights. Scenic design is by David Korins, costume design by Paul Tazewell, lighting design by Howell Binkley, sound design by Nevin Steinberg, hair and wig design by Charles G. LaPointe.

The Australian production of HAMILTON is produced by Jeffrey Seller, Sander Jacobs, Jill Furman, The Public Theater and Michael Cassel.
