Producer Jeffrey Seller and Segerstrom Center for the Arts are pleased to bring HAMILTON to Orange County audiences for the first time May 8 – 27, 2018 in Segerstrom Hall! With book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacomoire, HAMILTON is based on Ron Chernow’s biography of Founding Father, Alexander Hamilton. We have seen the show and it is amazing! Where studying history can be a bit boring at times, watching it performed live on stage while they sing, rap, and dance through the performances, you can’t help but stay tuned in. Everything from the costumes, the use of the stage, the flow of the transitions, and to the upbeat music, it has been creatively and well planned out. It is how theater should be enjoyed in modern times. We loved the singing, the performers, and this musical! Well done!
“HAMILTON is the story of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and was the new nation’s first Treasury Secretary. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B, and Broadway, HAMILTON is the story of America then, as told by America now.”
The HAMILTON creative team previously collaborated on the 2008 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, hair and wig design by Charles G. LaPointe, and casting by Telsey + Company, Bethany Knox, CSA. The musical is produced by Jeffrey Seller, Sander Jacobs, Jill Furman and The Public Theater. The HAMILTON Original Broadway Cast Recording is available everywhere nationwide. The HAMILTON recording received a 2016 Grammy for Best Musical Theatre Album.
