International hit musical Hamilton will open in New Zealand in 2023, it has been announced.
The Tony®, Grammy®, Olivier and Pulitzer Prize winning musical will make its kiwi debut playing a limited season at Spark Arena in Tamaki Makaurau – running from 26 May 2023 until 11 June 2023.
The show will arrive direct from Australia where it has played to critical acclaim in Sydney and Melbourne, and is due to open in Brisbane in January 2023.
“Australia has embraced Hamilton with an enthusiasm we could never have imagined,” Hamilton Producer Jeffrey Seller said. “Now it is time for our sensational Australian cast to continue their success in the southern hemisphere when the show premieres in New Zealand.”
“After the huge success Hamilton enjoyed in Australia it is only natural that we should now turn our attention to our friends in New Zealand and share this incredible production which is musical theatre at its most innovative, original and transformative best,” Hamilton’s Australasian producer Michael Cassel said.
The New Zealand run is presented at Spark Arena by TEG live with tickets on sale on December 5 through Ticketmaster.
