HAMILTON is NOW PLAYING at the Theatre at Solaire in Manila, Philippines!
Filipino audiences have patiently waited for the cultural phenomenon to arrive since long before creator Lin-Manuel Miranda announced the production’s arrival in March this year.
Since HAMILTON began performances on 17 September at Manila’s Theatre at Solaire, audiences have been abuzz with excitement upon finally seeing the production live, at home, in its Asian Premiere season as part of the show’s first ever international tour.
#Hamilfans and the Philippines’ biggest names alike glammed up to grace the red carpet for the show’s Gala Night on 21 September. Fans were also treated to an exclusive Manila #Hamilfans event the day prior, in which fans joined forces with cast members to play games – including local hit Pinoy Henyo – and hear from the cast in a very special Q&A.
The international tour sees an incredible cast made up of performers from around the world, including alumni from HAMILTON companies in Australia, the West End, Broadway, North American tours and the German production in Hamburg.
Announced to great anticipation in July, the international tour company is led by Jason Arrow as Alexander Hamilton, the Philippines’ very own Rachelle Ann Go as Eliza Hamilton, DeAundre’ Woods as Aaron Burr, Akina Edmonds as Angelica Schuyler, Darnell Abraham as George Washington, David Park as Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson, Shaka Bagadu Cook as Hercules Mulligan/James Madison, Jacob Guzman as John Laurens/Philip Hamilton, Elandrah Eramiha as Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds and Brent Hill as King George.
The company of 34 performers is completed by Claire Abaijah-Griffin, Kirrah Amosa, Curtis Angus, Kyla Bartholomeusz, Taylor Broadard, Trey Curtis, Lachlan Dearing, Winston Hillyer, Indigo Hunt, Marcus John, Julian Kuo, Iosefa Laga’aia, Ashton Lash, HaNy Lee, Terrance Martin, Trevor Miles, Eliza Ohman, Callan Purcell, Joshua Rivera, Wesley Ryan, Emmy Saheki, Terrance Spencer and Dayton Tavares.
HAMILTON has also launched Manila’s first ever ticket lottery, in which Filipino audiences can win the opportunity to purchase tickets at just PhP 800 each through TicketWorld.
Following Manila, the production heads to Abu Dhabi in January of 2024. Tickets are available for the Abu Dhabi season through Etihad Arena.
