IT'S the smash hit musical taking the world by storm - and it's coming to Southampton! 

Hamilton will play a six week season at Mayflower Theatre in 2025, the Daily Echo can today reveal. 

Producers Jeffrey Seller and Cameron Mackintosh have announced that the multi award-winning show will be in Hampshire from March 18 to April 26 2025, with tickets due to go on sale later this year.

Hamilton is the story of America then, told by America now. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway, Hamilton has taken the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theatre — a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics, and education.

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, it's based on Ron Chernow’s acclaimed biography and comes from the team behind Tony Award-Winning Best Musical In the Heights.

The Olivier, Tony, Grammy and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical opened at the newly re-built and restored Victoria Palace Theatre in London in December 2017 where it continues to play to sell-out houses and is currently booking until March next year.

The production also continues to play to record breaking houses on Broadway at the Richard Rodgers Theatre, throughout North America, in Toronto in Canada, Australia and Germany with forthcoming seasons in New Zealand and an international tour also planned.

Since its premiere off Broadway in 2015, the show has gone on to be nominated for a record-breaking 16 Tony Awards, winning 11, and received the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, as well as scooping seven Olivier awards.

A brand-new company for the UK and Ireland tour is currently being assembled from over 3000 hopefuls.

The cast for the UK and Ireland tour, which will also visit locations including Cardiff, Edinburgh, Bristol and Manchester, will be announced soon.

Tickets for Hamilton, which are expected to sell extremely well, will be available on October 5 from
