A SHOW WITH A SOUL.

Byline: FIONA PHILLIPS

LAll my Christmases came at once on Monday night when I was fortunate enough to be invited to see the most talked about musical on the planet. Hot from award-winning, sell-out success in America and starring a multi-racial cast - previously almost as rare as a snow leopard on a West End stage - Hamilton charts the story of Alexander Hamilton, America's least-known founding father, with young black, Asian, Latino and mixed-race actors portraying the usually white characters.

It's a riot of hip-hop, rap, traditional theatre songs, humour and pathos. It's the biggest show in town.

Form an orderly queue.
