Disney has announced that historical hip hop musical Hamilton will be streamed in cinemas in North America at the end of next year.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, the star and brains behind Hamilton, said the screening will be a live performance of a show at New York’s Richard Rodgers Theatre.

It will feature the original cast and be shown in cinemas on 15 October 2021.

The multi-award-winning show tells the story of the first US Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton.

The original Broadway cast included Miranda as Alexander Hamilton, Christopher Jackson as George Washington, Daveed Diggs as Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson, Renee Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler and Phillipa Soo as Eliza Hamilton.

The original stars have been busy with other projects since their final performances.

Leslie Odom Jr, who played Aaron Burr in the production, has since released a self-titled album and Soo went on to star in the title role of the musical adaption of Amélie.

Jonathan Groff, a two-time Tony nominee, currently plays the FBI detective in Netflix’s series Mindhunter.

Miranda earned an Oscar nomination for best original song for Disney’s Moana in 2017.

His first Tony-winning musical, In the Heights, has been adapted for the big screen and will debut sometime this year.
