Presented in Manila by Michael Cassel Group with GMG Productions, Hamilton is the story of America then, told by America now, featuring a diverse cast of performers telling the story of the birth of the United States through 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.
Hamilton premiered on Broadway in 2015 and went on to win 11 Tony awards, including Best Musical. It has since been seen all over the world including in London’s West End, Puerto Rico, Germany, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and soon, Manila, Philippines.
In the teaser video announcing the Manila premiere, Miranda said: “We have had so many incredible Filipino company members part of the Hamilton pamilya all over the planet, and now we get to bring the show to your beautiful country very soon! I can’t wait for you to see it.”
The international tour of Hamilton is produced by Jeffrey Seller, Sander Jacobs, Jill Furman, The Public Theater, and Michael Cassel. The Manila season is presented by Michael Cassel Group and GMG Productions.
Michael Cassel shared, “The response from Hamilton’s fans in Manila since we announced the season has been phenomenal. We can’t wait to get there in September.”
“We are absolutely thrilled that Hamilton will be making its Asian Premiere in Manila,” said Bob Sewell, co-presenter of Hamilton in Manila and producer at GMG Productions. “We can’t wait for Filipino audiences to see this incredible show.
