ABOUT THE SHOW
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. This new musical written by and starring past Tony Award-winner Lin-Manuel Miranda is about taking your shot, speaking your mind, and turning the world upside down.
TriviaNew York Stage and Film presented a workshop of the musical in 2013, under the title The Hamilton Mixtape. Hamilton premiered Off Broadway at the Public Theater in January 2015 before transferring to Broadway.
- The musical was inspired by the book Alexander Hamilton by historian Ron Chernow , which composer/lyricist/bookwriter Lin-Manual Miranda took along on a vacation in 2007.
- Miranda first performed the show’s opening number at the White House. He was invited to perform for President Obama as part of the White House Evening of Poetry, Music, and the Spoken Word in 2009.
