Hamilton, the musical play that runs for 2 hours and 50 minutes about the independence of America from Britain, has been showing in the Philippines since September 17 and until November 26.

Hamilton has taken the story of American founding father, Alexander Hamilton that created a revolutionary moment in theater. It has profound impact on culture, politics and education.

It premiered on Broadway in August 2015 to wide critical and audience acclaim, winning Tony, Grammy and Olivier Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

It features a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway.

With book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, directed by Thomas Kail and choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler with musical supervision by Alex Lacamoire, Hamilton is based on Ron Chernow’s acclaimed biography.

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

The Lin-Manuel Miranda musical will play Manila’s Theater at Solaire, its Asian premier.
