The award winning musical, Hamilton, is coming to Australia and a local is taking on the lead role.

Jason Arrow has been cast as Alexander Hamilton in the Aussie production of Hamilton, a musical about the founding of America.

The musical has won 11 Tony Awards and a Grammy for its soundtrack and a Perth actor is set to be the star of the show.
Arrow told 6PR Breakfast he was in shock when he got the call from his agent so he unpacked his dishwasher.

“I didn’t talk for about 10 minutes,” he told Steve and Baz.
“I was completely beside myself, it’s not something that you hear every day. So when I did I didn’t know what to do with myself; I unpacked the dishwasher straight away.”

“It’s massive, it’s such a huge thing and I’m glad it’s in Australia now.”
