It’s official, after sharing a sneak peek at the announcement, the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre has confirmed that Hamilton is hitting the Dublin stage.

The acclaimed musical follows the life of American Founding Father Alexander Hamilton through hip-hop and R&B. It opened on Broadway in 2015 and was an instant hit, before moving to the West End in 2017.

During its run on Broadway, it garnered 11 Tony Awards, while on the West End, it won seven Olivier Awards. This is on top of the show earning a Grammy and a Pulitzer.

Now, Hamilton is heading on a UK and Ireland tour and is scheduled to play a nine-week run at Dublin’s Bord Gáis Energy Theatre. The musical will be performed on stage from Tuesday, 17 September 2024 until Saturday, 16 November 2024.

Tickets go on sale on 28 April 2023.

A brand new company for Hamilton is set to come to Dublin and is currently being assembled from over 3,000 hopeful artists. It is said that the cast will be announced soon.

Described as the story of America then, told by America now, the show covers Hamilton’s impact on culture, politics, and education as well as his own personal conflicts and affairs.

Hamilton’s book, music, and lyrics were written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, who previously wrote the Tony Award-winning show In The Heights and worked on the movies Encanto and Moana.
