Hamilton, Victoria Palace Theatre, review: this musical still feels like one of the artistic wonders of the world

  • Lin-Manuel Miranda’s remarkable hip-hop history musical won legions of new fans when the slickly filmed Broadway production was released on Disney+ in 2020. However, I hope it also encouraged those converts to catch it live, because, as this spectacular Hamilton London theatre production demonstrates, there is simply nothing like being in the room where it happens.

Happy Birthday, Lin-Manuel Miranda!

Lin-Manuel Miranda turns 44 years old today. Here are five fun facts about the playwright. 1. Miranda began writing his debut musical, 'In the Heights,' while he was still in college. 2. 'Les Misérables' was the first musical he saw. 3. He wrote music for local politicians' ads 4. Miranda was inspired to write his first musical after seeing Jonathan Larson's 'Rent'. 5. He keeps a math trophy from high school next to one of his Grammys because he's "just as proud". Happy Birthday, Lin-Manuel Miranda!
