Lin-Manuel Miranda's hit musical will not open for another two weeks because of scheduled redevelopment to Victoria Palace Theatre running late.
The grand West End opening of the acclaimed musical ‘Hamilton’ has been thrown into chaos after being pushed back by two weeks, leaving thousands of disappointed fans without tickets.
Cameron Mackintosh, the owner of the Victoria Palace Theatre and the co-producer of ‘Hamilton’, confirmed the news on Friday (September 8th) that the massive redevelopment of the venue will not be completed in time for the scheduled November 21st opening of the play. “Tight time constraints” and “unhelpful problems” had prompted their “pragmatic decision” to postpone the opening, he explained.
Previews of ‘Hamilton’ will now begin a fortnight later on December 6th, but as all of the tickets for the run’s first booking period up to June 2018 have sold out, those who had booked tickets for the first two weeks are now left struggling to find seats again.
