Edinburgh is well known for its theatres. Standing on Edinburgh's longest continuous theatre site, the Festival Theatre was designed as Scotland's premier dance and opera house in 1994 and now offers a variety of world-class productions across all art forms. After a raving review in London's West End, HAMILTON, the story of America then, told by America now, featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B, and Broadway is coming to the Festival Theatre. HAMILTON has taken the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theatre—a musical that has had 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. The HAMILTON creative team previously collaborated on the Tony Award®-Winning Best Musical In the Heights.

HAMILTON features scenic design by David Korins, costume design by Paul Tazewell, lighting design by Howell Binkley, sound design by Nevin Steinberg, and hair and wig design by Charles G. LaPointe. HAMILTON is produced in the UK by Jeffrey Seller, Sander Jacobs, Jill Furman, The Public Theater and Cameron Mackintosh
