Hamilton is simply the smash hit of the century. After premiering off-Broadway at the Public Theater in February 2015 to a sold out limited engagement, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s juggernaut musical quickly made the leap uptown and began previews on Broadway on July 13, 2015, and opened to rave reviews on August 6. Hamilton plays at the Richard Rodgers Theatre.
Fast forward one year and Hamilton receives a record-breaking 16 Tony Award nominations and ends up tying The Producers with a total of 11 wins, including best musical. The original Broadway cast recording, reached number 3 on the Billboard charts at one point, with The Hamilton Mixtape debuting at the top spot in December 2016.
The show’s creator and original leading man Lin-Manuel Miranda was already known in the Broadway theatre community for his work on In The Heights and Bring It On, but Hamilton propelled his status into the mainstream of American pop culture. Hamilton also made top Broadway stars out of original cast members Leslie Odom, Jr., Renée Elise Goldsberry and Daveed Diggs (who each took home a Tony Award in their respective categories), as well as Phillipa Soo, Christopher Jackson and Okieriete Onaodowan. All original principal cast members have now left the Broadway production, but that hasn’t stopped fans who continue to flock to the theatre for sold-out performances.
Miranda’s idea to tell the story of Alexander Hamilton through hip hop and R&B by a multi-racial cast captured the imagination of Americans coast to coast. For the younger demographics still at school, Hamilton would become the most revolutionary and exciting history lesson they would ever attend. The musical combines eighteenth century-inspired, Tony-winning costumes by Paul Tazewell and slick, modern, Tony-winning choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler to create a fresh, Broadway production to appeal to those outside the Broadway community and hardened theatregoers in equal measure.

George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Eliza Hamilton, and lifelong Hamilton friend and foe, Aaron Burr, all attend this revolutionary tale of America’s fiery past told through the sounds of the ever-changing nation we’ve become.
