According to the New York Times, Lin-Manuel Miranda's hit Broadway musical Hamilton will be coming to England, Europe and Australia.
In a profile published last night, producer Jeffery Seller revealed that he is working with Cameron Mackintosh on a production of the smash-hit musical and aims to open the show in London in 2017, followed by companies in continental Europe and Australia.
Hamilton, which tells the story of US founding father Alexander Hamilton, has won fans including Barack Obama and Samuel L Jackson. After premiering at the off-Broadway Public Theatre, it opened on Broadway with advance sales of over £20 million. WhatsOnStage reported in August that a London transfer was likely.
Directed by Thomas Kail and inspired by Ron Chernow's biography of Hamilton, the show also features George Washington, King George III and Thomas Jefferson.
Mackintosh told the Evening Standard last year there is "every intention" for the show to come to the capital with Miranda adding, "My wife is always trying to get me to other countries so I would be honoured to open the show in London."
