Hamilton (Lewis) heads to London after the Edinburgh Fringe...

Another Hamilton will be hitting the London stage this September after a run at the Edinburgh Fringe. HAMILTON (LEWIS) is the musical parody that'll have you laughing in your seat! It tells the story of Lewis Hamilton, the most successful British F1 driver ever and it sounds hilarious...

HAMILTON (LEWIS) is the epic tale of a self-starter, born and raised in Stevenage, who worked a lot harder, by being a lot faster, a man who became the most successful British F1 driver in the history of the sport. And who also bagged a Pussycat Doll.

This brand-new parody blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway musical styles to show the petrol-fuelled thrills and spills of the life of Hamilton (Lewis) then, as told by Hamilton (Lewis) now. It's "guaranteed to have you in hysterics all the way to the finish line."

And, just in case you were wondering, this show is "not in any way endorsed by (Hamilton creator) Lin-Manuel Miranda... or Hamilton... (Lewis)... or the Pussycat Dolls."

HAMILTON (LEWIS) is directed by Benji Sperring, whose other recent musical credits include The Toxic Avenger (Southwark Playhouse, Edinburgh Fringe 2017 and West End) and Shock Treatment (King's Head Theatre). It has musical direction, music and lyrics by David Eaton (The Mikado, King Tut: A Pyramid Panto at the King's Head) and a book written by Fiona English, author of 1127 and This is Happening.

HAMILTON (LEWIS) has its world premiere at this year's Edinburgh Fringe, running from 7 to 26 August 2018 at Assembly George Square in Edinburgh. It then transfers directly for its London premiere at the King's Head Theatre, where it runs from 5 to 22 September 2018, with a press night on 6 September.
