Police are investigating a fight which broke out between theatregoers at a performance of the hit musical Hamilton.

A man and a woman in the audience were thought to have been involved in the fight at Palace Theatre, Manchester, on Friday.

Police said no arrests had been made.

In April officers were called to the same theatre after rowdy audience members halted a performance of The Bodyguard.

A Greater Manchester Police (GMP) spokesman said officers were called following a “report of an assault”.

He added: “An investigation is ongoing at this time with no arrests made.

“Thankfully, injuries sustained are not believed to be life-threatening.”

GMP appealed for information.

The award-winning musical is on a UK-wide tour for the first time.

Hamilton is the story of Alexander Hamilton, a man of Scots descent who became an American founding father.

The UK tour opened in Manchester where it will run for 15 weeks from 11 November to 24 February.

It will then move to Edinburgh’s Festival Theatre for two months before continuing around the UK.

The Cameron Mackintosh and Jeffrey Seller production has been playing on London’s West End since 2017 and continues to play to sell-out houses at the Victoria Palace Theatre.
