Talking about London’s Autumn Season, Lin-Manuel Miranda, says: “London is one of the most exciting places in the world. There’s a real sense of discovery about London – you turn the corner and you walk into something new, amazing, and teeming with life. There is so much to see during London’s Autumn Season, every weekend there’s something going on. Bringing Hamilton to the West End during the autumn is a dream come true – and I can’t wait to see how British audiences embrace it.”
Jumoké Fashola who stars in London’s Autumn Season alongside Lin-Manuel Miranda, says: “London is an incredible place to visit. It’s a city that always smiles and always has something to give.”
