LAE Students attend special Hamilton performance

42 LAE students were fortunate enough to be invited to attend a special performance of Lin-Manuel Miranda's musical Hamilton at The Victoria Palace Theatre. With rapping 18th-century statesmen, a feel-good hip-hop score and a cast predominantly comprising actors of colour, Hamilton was seen as revolutionary when it first reached the stage in 2015. 

As Andrzej Lukowski wrote in London's Time Out, Hamilton " celebratory of multiculturalism and immigration, things our city knows very well. Plus it is of tremendous significance that a group of relatively unknown BAME actors are in a period show that is, by a really very long way, the best and cleverest thing on the London stage."

Students were invited to join a post-performance Q&A with the cast and crew and experienced a short demonstration of how this amazing musical is brought to life by the technical team behind the scenes.
