The Australian production of Hamilton has been presented with a very unique opportunity, as one of the only major live theatre productions occurring in the world, and if it could speak it would most certainly say “I’m not throwing away my shot!”

This version of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s instant classic takes all of the elements that we know and love from the original stage and Disney+ versions and infuses them it’s some trademark Aussie flair. Doing this makes the story of America’s forgotten founding father one which is especially compelling for an Australian audience.

Having watched, and adored Hamilton on Disney+, I walked into the Lyric Theatre with incredibly high expectations for this show and yet these expectations were still exceeded. Witnessing Hamilton live is a truely special experience, which saw me connecting with the story more deeply on an emotional level.

Hamilton at the Lyric Theatre is a must watch!
