It has just been announced that the Tony, Grammy, Olivier, and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical HAMILTON will make its Asian premiere in Manila for a strictly limited season at The Theatre at Solaire this September!
After its southern hemisphere premiere in Sydney in March 2021 and the tour to Melbourne and Brisbane, the beloved musical is now embarking on its first-ever international tour starting in Auckland this May. It will then travel to Manila to make its Asian premiere with a cast drawn from performers from all over the world!
HAMILTON features a blend of hip-hop, jazz, R&B, and Broadway in its score as it tells the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton. The production has created a revolutionary moment in theatre while leaving a profound impact on culture, politics, and education.
With book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, HAMILTON is based on Ron Chernow’s acclaimed biography.

“From the spectacular opening night in Sydney in 2021, through the sensational seasons in Melbourne, Brisbane and, soon, Auckland, audiences have embraced Hamilton with an enthusiasm we could never have imagined,” HAMILTON Producer Jeffrey Seller said.
“Hamilton’s fans from the Philippines have been telling us for years how much they want to see the show, many of them have traveled to see it all over the world. It is a thrill to, finally, be able to bring it to them,” Producer of the international tour of HAMILTON, Michael Cassel added. “Hamilton is musical theatre at its most innovative, original, and transformative best. It is an absolute joy to be able to bring it to Asia for the first time and to assemble a cast of the best performers from all over the world to deliver it.”
“We could not be more excited to be hosting Hamilton’s Asian premiere in Manila,” GMG Productions’ CEO Carlos Candal said. “We know we have a passionate Hamilton fan base who is absolutely thrilled that the show is coming later this year. We know Pinoy Hamilfans will not disappoint!”
