OSN will stream the production exclusively in the region as part of the Disney+ Originals partnership agreement.
Pay-TV network OSN will air the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Hamilton, the filmed version of the original Broadway production, exclusively on July 4 on the OSN Streaming app.
The filmed version of the original Broadway production of Hamilton combines the best elements of live theatre, film and streaming. Hamilton is the story of America then, told by America now. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway, the film has taken the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theatre—a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics, and education.
Filmed at The Richard Rodgers Theatre on Broadway in June of 2016, the film transports its audience into the world of the Broadway show in a uniquely intimate way. With book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda and direction by Thomas Kail, Hamilton is inspired by the book Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow and produced by Thomas Kail, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jeffrey Seller, with Sander Jacobs and Jill Furman serving as executive producers. The film was produced by RadicalMedia.
“We are thrilled to be bringing the filmed version of Hamilton, the award-winning and widely popular Broadway musical exclusive to our audiences in the Middle East. Our partnership with Disney+ gives OSN subscribers access to best-in-class content including from Disney, Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, and National Geographic.
