A Pulitzer for playwriting, eleven Tony Awards and an exhibition at the White House, thanks to an invitation by First Lady Michelle Obama. Hamilton, the musical with text and libretto by Lin-Manuel Miranda, inspired by the life of one of the founding fathers of the United States, Alexander Hamilton, moves on to enchant the Victoria Palace Theatre in the heart of West End. From its Off-Broadway debut in February of 2015, to it’s arrival on Broadway in August of the following year, this extraordinary work rides its wave of success, with accolades by politicians and celebrities alike, across the Atlantic to open in London. With its score inspired by hip-hop, rap and traditional Broadway, the musical with a new concept of musical theatre is on stage from 22 December to 30 June. Jamael Westman plays Alexander Hamilton, Rachelle Ann Go plays Eliza and Obioma Ugoala plays the role of George Washington.
The fair celebrates 30 years with an edition that is full of surprises. On display, art from Modernism to today, with 131 international galleries and an art exhibition of works from Britain’s public collections.
