Hamilton is the musical that proved that theater does not have to remain confined to tradition. From the brilliant mind of Lin-Manuel Miranda comes a musical that tells the story of American Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. The musical took more than 7 years to compose and features a score that fuses hip hop, R&B, pop, soul, and traditional Broadway show tunes. I first saw Hamilton at Segerstrom Center for the Arts in 2018 and absolutely could not get enough of the show, playing the soundtrack on repeat for months. Hamilton returns to the center this Fall and is the perfect show to kick off the 2022-2023 Broadway Season. See Hamilton at Segerstrom Center for the Arts September 28 – October 16, 2022.
Lin-Manuel Miranda drew inspiration from Ron Chernow’s biography, Alexander Hamilton. The story of America then is told by America now in a way that is engaging, poignant, and thought-provoking. Miranda took some liberty in recounting the events of Hamilton’s life, but the story and the lyrics were studied intently. Many of the lines were taken from primary source documents such as personal letters and documents, including the Federalist Papers and the Reynolds Pamphlet.

The entire musical is sung and rapped through which is sheer brilliance. The fusion of history and modernity and a representative cast make the show widely appealing, compelling, and relatable. When Hamilton premiered Off-Broadway in 2015, Miranda starred as Alexander Hamilton. The musical went on to win eight Drama Desk Awards and 11 Tony Awards. Hamilton also received the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Hamilton’s success extends beyond the stage, touching culture, politics, and education.
