“Australia has embraced Hamilton with an enthusiasm we could never have imagined,” Hamilton Producer Jeffrey Seller said.
“Now it is time for our sensational Australian cast to continue their success in the southern hemisphere when the show premieres in New Zealand.” “After the huge success Hamilton enjoyed in Australia it is only natural that we should now turn our attention to our friends in New Zealand and share this incredible production which is musical theatre at its most innovative, original and transformative best,” Hamilton’s Australasian producer Michael Cassel said.
“TEG Live is very proud to be partnering with Michael Cassel Group to present this extraordinary production in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland. Hamilton is sheer brilliance on stage and not to be missed!” Geoff Jones, Chief Executive Officer, TEG said.
HAMILTON premiered on Broadway in August 2015 to wide critical and audience acclaim. The show has won Tony® , Grammy® , and Olivier Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway,

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.
