‘Hamil­ton’ cre­ator to use London de­but as cli­mate fundraiser

The Trentonian (Trenton, NJ) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

LONDON » The cre­ator of the hit mu­si­cal “Hamil­ton” plans to use the show’s in­ter­na­tional de­but in London next month to raise money to com­bat cli­mate change.

Writer, com­poser and ac­tor Lin-Manuel Mi­randa and his wife, Vanessa Nadal, said Mon­day that donors to two en­vi­ron­men­tal char­i­ties will be el­i­gi­ble to win the chance to ac­com­pany the cou­ple to “Hamil­ton’s” London pre­miere.

Mi­randa told the As­so­ci­ated Press they chose the Nat­u­ral Re­sources De­fense Coun­cil and Bri­tain-based char­ity 10:10 as the fundraiser’s ben­e­fi­cia­ries be­cause of their com­mit­ment to com­bat­ting cli­mate change.

Mi­randa said: “With ‘Hamil­ton’s’ first in­ter­na­tional pro­duc­tion, we think it is ap­pro­pri­ate to tackle an is­sue that af­fects the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity.”

Re­fur­bish­ment work at the Vic­to­ria Palace The­atre has de­layed the mu­si­cal’s de­but in London. It now is set for early De­cem­ber.
