With book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, HAMILTON is based on Ron Chernow’s acclaimed biography.

Broadway ShowsMusicalsTony WinnersTony NomineesCritics Picks

the iconic musical returns to LA!

The biggest Broadway show since The Book of Mormon is hitting the road on its first national tour. Written by Tony, Grammy and Emmy Award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda, Hamilton is a true landmark of American culture, tearing up the musical theatre rulebook with a score that is equal parts Sondheim and Notorious B.I.G., and a cast of ethnically diverse actors in the roles of the Founding Fathers. The story centers on Alexander Hamilton, one of our most important (and colorful) characters, who rose from his humble orphaned beginnings to play a major role in making America the country it is today.

Hamilton made its New York debut Off-Broadway at the Public Theater in 2015, where it was met with universal acclaim and was extended three times due to public demand. It lost none of its potency in the subsequent Broadway transfer, with Ben Brantley of the New York Times writing it was "changing the language of musicals". President Obama himself deemed it good enough for not one but two visits. In 2016, it won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and scooped 11 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score and many more! In 2018, it swept up the Olivier Awards bagging seven of their recording breaking 11 nominations, including Best New Musical.


One of the Founding Fathers, Alexander Hamilton's story is an extraordinary one. Born out of wedlock in the West Indies, and orphaned by the time he was 11, he arrived in New Jersey in 1772 to begin his grammar school education. From there he played a major role in the American revolutionary war, rising through the ranks to become an aide to George Washington. But that was only the beginning of the great man's story, with the proceeding chapters in his life taking in everything from sex scandals, fatal duels and the creation of the American Constitution.


Hamilton didn't just conquer the stage, it took over the airwaves too! Its Grammy nominated Cast Recording was the highest charting album of its kind since 1963!

Latest Hamilton Los Angeles Reviews

We had such a great experience seeing Hamilton! We were dropped off in front of the theatre and the staff were very helpful asking if we were ready to enter and then offering a wheelchair for our elderly grandmother. It would've been helpful if they let us know there weren't any elevators to get her to our seats but the ushers were very helpful in directing us and having the wheelchair ready during intermission as well as after the show. It is such a beautiful theatre and so great to see a show there!
This theater is gorgeous and well run. Every time we come here, I'm shocked by how beautiful the decor is. Last night felt like my first visit all over...

This makes my 7th performance in 4 cities. This cast was really good. The onstage comradeship was obvious. I really enjoyed Jefferson, but how could I not...
Beautiful theatre. Just recently saw Hamilton and was pleasantly surprised at how well you could see from the seats that we had (p108). The only problem you may have is if you are short or if the person in front is tall. This will affect up your line of site and may require you to constantly adjust to the head in front of you. They do offer booster seats and booster cushions, which may affect the person behind you. Outside of that, great show and theatre!
We came here this past weekend on a Saturday night to see Hamilton! We thoroughly enjoyed the amazingly talented performers in this gorgeous theatre! Fun...
HAMILTON!!!It's EVERYTHING they have been saying and MORE!The play had been going on for about 20 minutes and I already decided that I am soooooooo coming back!The Pantages is great, just VERY cold! Since it was a hot day, we didn't bring inside any sweaters and we were FREEZING! (I normally run warm.)So bring a sweater or light jacket and enjoy this magnificent performance! You won't be sorry! 🥰👍💜💙❤👍🥰
The Pantages is a great venue to see a play. I recommend parking at the lot on Vine St. just south of Selma Avenue. Don't prepay for parking online or you'll get screwed over. I prepaid $10 for parking at the Sunset Media Center garage only to find out that the gate never even opened. Got screwed out of $10!
Hamilton from the mezzanine. See the pictures I took. The view is great; the only downside is that we were too far away to see the expressions on the...
Not only is the venue gorgeous and a magical theater to visit, but the service is incredible! I emailed them the night my MIL was going to be there celebrating her birthday and Derek Maglinte, the general manager, wrote back within minutes. He made accommodations to make her night extra special and we couldn't be more grateful! Thank you, Derek and the staff of Pantages for being great humans. You have my business! 😀
Hamilton, of course, is fabulous. How many experiences in life leave us both laughing and crying? The Pantages was a perfect setting for Hamilton. Thank you so much to the cast, crew and theatre personnel for a wonderful evening!
A beautiful theater that a proper Angeleno should know intimately. The exterior is Hollywood questionable; the interior is Hollywood beautiful. There are...

So excited for my whole family to see Hamilton at the Pantages Theatre! So glad that they are smart enough to protect the audience from Covid with the simple requirement, "proof of vaccine". Nevermind the selfish individuals that only think of their own personal freedom, and not the greater interests of the public well-being and safety.
What a gem of a theater!!! I took my family here for the first time to see Hamilton and the entire experience could not have been more great. The intricate...

So excited for my whole family to see Hamilton at the Pantages Theatre! So glad that they are smart and well-educated to protect the audience from Covid with the simple requirement of vaccine proof. Thank you for protecting everyone! Nevermind the selfish individuals that only think of their own personal freedom, and not the greater interests of the public well-being and safety.
I saw the Lion King show here a few years ago and it was awesome!The ornate exterior is one thing, tho the interior is exquisite elegance!The acoustics were excellent, the visuals with the lighting was perfect and the seating was clean and comfortable.This legendary theater must be among the best places anywhere to see a Broadway Theater stage show!Since this theater’s by the famous intersection of Hollywood and Vine, it’s also included as an historic place to point out on my group tours.Due to the pandemic hiatus, I’ve not been touring here lately, so it was nice to stop by, peer thru to the front and see this grand old place, still up and running with upcoming shows!Parking is to the rear of the building as well as off of Vine Street.
I have been to the Pantages Theatre many times. It is a beautiful theatre! Really gives off that old Hollywood glam vibe! I've seen many different shows...

Nice theatre. Staff was smiling and ready to help. Parking isn't so much fun, either are the street people you have to pass to get there, but that's not the theaters fault.
One of my favorites!! I have seen a lot of shows at the Hollywood Pantages with my friends. It's one of my favorite theaters
What a gorgeous theatre!! Went and saw the Frozen Musical and it was magical! Such a great place to visit!
I love this theater, it's so darn pretty. Getting to it is a nightmare but with the parking structure that opened up in the mall across from it, parking is super easy and that's a plus. If you have tickets for a show, they will park you in VIP so it's easy and quick to get to the theater and back on the structure. I really love that. The theater is an icon, it's ceilings and art deco decor are just beautiful. It's not too big, so any seat is a pretty good seat, though I prefer 1st row center in the mezzanine. Best seats as far as I'm concerned. Food and drink is as expected, expensive and not great but there are plenty of great places to eat around the Theatre that make making a day out of it worth it - though it's not in the best part of town, so don't drop your guard just because it's touristy and if you're taking kids, get a feel for the area first. It's not horrible, please don't get me wrong, but it is a VERY, VERY busy area and not all of it is child appropriate. The Pantages is a must-go for any theater fan, so GO! And enjoy!
In a day when the world turned upside down, Hollywood Pantages continued to reach out to season ticket holders and fight to keep theatre alive. It would...
This place is grand. It's like taking a step into the past of some magnificent, magical grandeur. It gets me every time I'm here. Your experience will vary...

Meet the L.A. Cast of HAMILTON: Staying in Shape

Live theater is an obstacle course, but ‘Hamilton’ at the Pantages is worth it

“Hamilton” returned to the Hollywood Pantages, and after 17 months of not being inside a theater, I decided it was time to be back in the room where it happens.

Trust me, your doubly vaccinated, tightly masked theater critic didn’t take this step lightly. I’ve been tracking the Delta surge the way storm chasers monitor hurricane signals in the Caribbean.

My private risk calculation, however, suggested that it was time. I’m relatively healthy and there’s no one especially vulnerable with whom I’m in daily contact. Also, until “Succession” returns this fall, I’m all out of television.

A voice in my head has been urging me to learn to live with this damn virus. I haven’t been dining in restaurants and tend to see friends only outside, but last month I went on a plane for the first time since February 2020. This math seems subjective because it is subjective. But for most of us the circumference is widening, cautiously yet inevitably.

“Hamilton” felt like the right homecoming. I’d seen the show fourtimesbefore, not counting the laptop viewings on Disney+. I can’t think of another contemporary work that more thrillingly captures the propulsive vitality of musical theater than Lin-Manuel Miranda’s masterpiece.

For this first outing, I wanted to be dazzled. I wished to silently sing along, not piece together an unfamiliar and perhaps indifferent plot.

Anticipating the stress of the new COVID-19 protocols, I forgot the old stresses, the lunatic driving at Hollywood and Vine, the $25 parking fee (“credit card only, please”). The woman sitting behind me returned after intermission with a bag of potato chips. All through “What’d I Miss,” the second-act opener, she didn’t just chomp but seemed to be trying to set up a tent with the wrapper.

On the plus side, no phones went off in my vicinity. But when someone shouted something indecipherable near the end of the show, I felt that clutch of panic I haven’t experienced since the pandemic sent us into seclusion. How quickly the subterranean terror of living in a society overrun with gun violence returns, I thought, once realizing it was only an audience member’s miscued enthusiasm.

Those COVID-19 protocols weren’t rigorously enforced. I was desperately eager to show off my digital SMART health card that only took only a month for the California Department of Public Health to correct. But when I asked the ticket check-in person if he wanted to see my proof of vaccination, he declined the privilege.

My companion was required to show her vaccination card when her bag was checked, but not having any purse or parcel, I sailed through this security checkpoint oblivious of the opportunity I was being denied.

Inside the Pantages’ Art Deco lobby, theatergoers milled as chaotically, boisterously and perplexedly as they are wont to do. Masks were worn as though they had long been standard fashion, a garment no more desired than some restricting undergarment but socially necessary all the same.

It wasn’t until I went inside the theater that I began to spot the scofflaws. The first was a guy with his mask hanging from his chin like a wayward bandage. He appeared to be hitting on a female acquaintance who, by the way she slipped away from him, didn’t seem all that impressed by his undraped nose.

Directly across the aisle from me, an arrogant-looking fellow in his 60s sat unmasked for nearly the entire show. “Hamilton” is long, nearly three hours. That’s a lot of time for not a single usher to confront the smugness of a guy who assumed that the rules don’t apply to him.

I had to remind myself more than once that my role wasn’t classroom monitor. That I had come to reexperience live theater and that these infractions are part of the deal, as ineradicable as defiant texting and crinkly candy wrappers.

The high level of the show, preserving the kinetic magic of Thomas Kail’s direction and Andy Blankenbuehler’s choreography, helped assuage the tension. I was almost surprised by how good it was. Usually, after a certain number of iterations away from Broadway, the quality declines. But the singing of this national tour production, starring Jamael Westman (who played the show’s title role in London, receiving an Olivier nomination), is as good as I’ve heard anywhere.

Beyoncé would no doubt be impressed by the sweetness of the melodies emanating from Joanna A. Jones, who plays Alexander Hamilton’s wife, Eliza. When she sweeps across the stage with her sisters, Sabrina Sloan’s fierce Angelica and Taylor Iman Jones’ pert Peggy, the seductive R&B energy kicks into tantalizing musical theater gear, reminding us all of what we’ve been missing.

“Hamilton” is dramatically built around numbers that only seem to get better on repeat viewing. Rory O’Malley turns up the daftness on King George’s 1960s-style British pop ditties with royal aplomb.

Nicholas Christopher’s Aaron Burr delivers the stomping heat in “The Room Where It Happens,” the song in which this careful political operator gives us a glimpse of his murderous ambition. Carvens Lissaint finds the gospel glory in “One Last Time,” George Washington’s principled political farewell. And Simon Longnight, who plays both Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson, can’t compete with the memory of Daveed Diggs, but he excels in rapping humorous ripostes and clever badinage.

Westman’s Hamilton, slightly underpowered in the early going, cuts a deepening poetic figure as Hamilton’s tragic end draws near. The character’s inner life is held up in this tender portrayal like a chamber illuminated by the glow of a bedside candle

One question I had is how well “Hamilton” would hold up in an era that is vastly different from when this musical first burst on the scene in 2015. President Obama has long been out of office, Donald Trump’s Twitter microphone has been turned off, and we’re still processing the racial reckoning that is the lasting legacy of George Floyd’s unconscionable death.

Miranda has been criticized for whitewashing the founding fathers’ slaveholding history. The politics of the show, as I pointed out when I first encountered the work off-Broadway at the Public Theater, are less incisive than the musical’s theatrical style.

But I continue to believe that, in performance, the casting of actors of color in historically white roles overwhelmingly communicates to audiences a message of equality, fairness and democratic meaning that is impossible to argue with. The musical for me hasn’t aged a day.

In fact, it continues to speak directly to our moment. The one time I felt my eyes getting noticeably moist was when the battle in the Revolutionary War suddenly and unexpectedly swung in the direction of the rebel forces.

What, I wondered darkly, are we fighting for today? The guy across from me was defending his right to not wear a mask. The insurgents who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6 were stampeding for the right to overturn a free and fair election and install a tin-pot dictator.

I couldn’t help also reflecting on the troops in Afghanistan who died this week trying to assist in the evacuation of those fleeing the Taliban. These Americans seemed to me to have more in common with our founders than all the political loudmouths who have lost any sense of the common good.

“Hamilton,” when you’re ready to return to the theater, is worth another look.
