What do we know so far
According to the official website, priority booking is now open, and general tickets will be on sale from 21st December, as per the announcement.
WhatsOnStage have speculated their best guess (although no official information has been made on the casting), that Karl Queensborough will continue to play the lead role Alexander Hamilton, and that Lin-Manuel Miranda will not perform.
Before the show closed, the cast also consisted of Allyson Ava-Brown as Angelica Schuyler, Jason Pennycooke as Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson, Emilie Louise Israel as Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds, Trevor Dion Nicholas as George Washington, Simon-Anthony Rhoden as Aaron Burr, Sharon Rose as Eliza Hamilton, Emile Ruddock as Hercules Mulligan/James Madison, Carl Spencer as John Laurens/Philip Hamilton, and Gavin Spokes as King George.
It’s also rumoured that the show’s return will not be implementing social distancing, which will be quite the change from the very well-dispersed audiences during the few seated performances which have gone ahead during 2020.
We recommend you set that alarm in good time for 10am on 21st December, and hope that Christmas comes early for Hamilton fans this year!

About Hamilton The Musical London
Hamilton is an award-winning West End musical production about the life of Alexander Hamilton, the American Founding Father. Taking place in London’s Victoria Palace Theatre in the West End, the must-see musical covers the lifetime of Alexander and his role in shaping America’s very foundations. Taking part in two acts, the play covers everything from his roots as an immigrant from the West Indies, to his rise to becoming the right-hand man of George Washington during the Revolutionary War.
The musical score of the play blends a mix of Broadway, rap, blues, jazz, R&B and hip hop, aptly reflecting modern America while telling the story of a pivotal point in America’s history. With stunning lyrics, book and music curated by Lin-Manuel Miranda along with choreography from Andy Blankenbuehler, the production promises to showcase an amazing line up of talent. The show is directed by Thomas Kail and based on the biography ‘Alexander Hamilton’ by Ron Chernow, with Alex Lacamoire acting as co-arranger and in charge of orchestrations.
Along with Alexander Hamilton, the Hamilton musical characters also include Hercules Mulligan, James Madison, Eliza Hamilton, Marquis de Lafayette, Thomas Jefferson, John Laurens, Aaron Burr, Peggy Schuyler, Maria Reynolds and Philip Hamilton. The play also includes characters Angelica Schuyler, George Washington and King George.
Hamilton originally opened in New York’s Public Theatre in 2015 to rave reviews. The musical has won many awards, including the Olivier award, Tony award and Grammy awards to name a few. In 2017 the Broadway production came to London and to its current home of Victoria Palace Theatre.
