Australian production of Hamilton sets box office record

View descriptionShare

Hamilton, which premiered on Broadway in 2015, tells the story of America’s once-forgotten founding father Alexander Hamilton who rose from poverty to become an indispensable aide to George Washington during the American Revolutionary War before becoming the first treasury secretary of the United States.

Ticket sales for the Australian production, which officially opens on March 27, has broken box office records before a single audience member has seen the show. 

Today on Please Explain, Nathanael Cooper is joined by Hamilton's original Broadway producer Jefferey Seller and Australian producer Michael Cassel to discuss how this multi-award winning musical came together during the global pandemic.
