Hamilton musical wows first London audience
From BBC - December 7, 2017

The first UK performance of Broadway hit Hamilton has left audience members singing the hip-hop musical's praises.

Self-proclaimed "theatre addict" Alex Packer called the performances from the London cast "faultless", and Jen Waller called the evening "truly special".

The Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye said it had been "the best first preview of a musical [he'd] seen since Miss Saigon".

In the Telegraph, meanwhile, Veronica Lee said the show at the Victoria Palace theatre "went without a hitch".

The opening of the show had been put back a fortnight, due to delays in the venue's extensive restoration.

Previews continue until 21 December, when the Tony-winning musical will have its official opening night.

"Saw the first performance of @HamiltonWestEnd tonight and it literally blew my mind," tweeted "serial theatregoer" Daniel Lewis.
