It’s arguably one of the biggest musicals of the decade, and now Hamilton will finally be coming to Australia as Sydney has secured a premiere date.
Sydney Morning Herald reports that NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced that Sydney’s Lyric Theatre has finally secured a premiere for Lin-Manuel Miranda’s blockbuster musical for February 2021.
Miranda himself made a statement as well, saying “Thank you to everyone in Australia who’s been asking for Hamilton. It’s on its way and we can’t wait.”
