Pictures from Hamilton and facts
No one could have predicted that a hip-hop-infused musical based on the life of Alexander Hamilton would be Broadways hottest ticket, but Hamilton, which Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote over the course of six years is sold out through next year. Here are a few things you might not have known about Mirandas take on the life and times of the first Secretary of the Treasury
Hamilton was first staged as a workshop production in 2013 at the Powerhouse Theatre on the campus of Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York. Notable cast members of the workshop performances included Utkarsh Ambudkar playing the role of Aaron Burr and Anika Noni Rose playing Angelica Schuyler.
One of the great achievements of Hamilton is making the story of the founding of the United States relevant to the story of the United States today. One way Miranda achieved this was purposely casting non-Caucasian actors in the roles of Caucasian historical figures. He explained, "Our goal was: This is a story about America then, told by America now, and we want to eliminate any distance-our story should look the way our country looks."
