Sydney Welcomes Another Icon – Hamilton
SYDNEY, March 17, 2021 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Hamilton is one of the most critically acclaimed and successful musicals of our 
time. Since debuting in 2015, the Tony®, Grammy®, Olivier and Pulitzer Prize 
winning musical has sold over 2.6 million tickets, playing at iconic theatres 
from New York's Broadway to London's West End. And as of March 2021, this 
global phenomenon will only be playing in one location – Sydney's Lyric 

Sydney is the vibrant capital of New South Wales, Australia. Home to the iconic 
Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, the incredible Harbour City is 
renowned for its natural beauty, world-class dining, vibrant nightlife, 
multicultural heritage and rich and exciting arts and events scene, making it a 
sought-after tourism destination the world over. It is only fitting that the 
global city is now setting the stage to host an icon of the musical theatre 
world – Hamilton.  

Commenting on Sydney as the host city of the Australian premiere, original 
Hamilton producer Jeffrey Seller said: "Sydney is our bright light and our 
rising sun. Sydney represents what I hope will be the rebirth of theatre, and 
Hamilton across the entire world. It is thanks to Sydney that we can open 
Hamilton on schedule, as we have been planning for the past 3-plus years with 
the Michael Cassel Group."

Hamilton will open this March at the Australian family owned and operated, 
2,000 seat Sydney Lyric Theatre. Owned by the Found family of Foundation 
Theatres, Sydney Lyric Theatre is a staple of the NSW musical theatre scene. 

The talented and diverse 35-person cast includes Sydney local Chloe Zuel, who 
plays Eliza Hamilton. Tickets for the show are available most nights of the 
week, with back-to-back shows playing on weekends, for the entirety of the 
season from March 2021.  

Destination NSW CEO Steve Cox said: "We're immensely proud that Hamilton is 
opening exclusively in Sydney this month – further proof that Sydney is not 
only one of the greatest cities in the world but also the place to be right 
now. What a way for Sydney to show the world that we're open for business, 
welcoming visitors and really embracing the roaring 2020s."  

Hamilton will open at Sydney Lyric Theatre from 17 March 2021.
