Bristol, brace yourself! The sensational and globally acclaimed Hamilton is ready to dazzle the Bristol Hippodrome! As part of its inaugural UK and Ireland spree, the hit musical will grace the city, sending waves of excitement across all quarters. With the grand performances set between April 30 and June 22, 2024, those lucky to have snagged tickets since their May release are in for a theatrical treat.
Originally debuting to a full house at the revamped Victoria Palace Theatre in London in December 2017, Hamilton hasn’t slowed down a beat. Broadway, North America, and Toronto have all witnessed the magic. Chronicling the life of American Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, it bagged an astounding 11 awards out of 16 nominations at the 70th Tony Awards in 2016 and clinched the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
