    Sir Cameron Mackintosh has revealed he plans to bring rap and hip-hop show to the capital in 2017, telling the Evening Standard: “I think there’s every intention for it to come to London.” He previously worked with Hamilton producer Jeffrey Seller to bring Avenue Q across the Atlantic.

    Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda said: “We're hoping it will happen sooner rather than later. My wife is always trying to get me to other countries so I would be honoured to open the show in London.” Miranda also wrote and starred in the Tony Award-winning Best Musical In The Heights, which enjoyed a sell-out run last year at the Southwark Playhouse, and is returning to London this October at the King's Cross Theatre.

    The musical phenomenon, which tells the story of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, opened at Broadway's Richard Rodgers Theatre with advance sales of £25 million. Featuring a multi-cultural cast who play characters including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and King George III, Hamilton is directed by Thomas Kail and choreographed by Andy Blankenbuehler.

    The Broadway production has received glowing reviews, with New York Times critic Ben Brantley writing: “Historic. Hamilton is brewing up a revolution. This is a show that aims impossibly high and hits its target. It's probably not possible to top the adrenaline rush.” The Wall Street Journal called it “the best and most important Broadway musical of the past decade.”
