The story of Hamilton
Alexander Hamilton may have lived over two centuries ago, but his legacy still remains. Lin-Manuel Miranda's groundbreaking musical has immortalized the man who achieved greatness against all odds.
With a score that seamlessly blends R&B, jazz, blues, rap, hip-hop, and Broadway, Hamilton's story recounts everything from his humble beginnings as an immigrant orphan to serving as George Washington's right-hand man during the Revolutionary War.
As the first Treasury Secretary of America, Hamilton left the battlefields behind and made his mark in the most significant boardrooms in history. He played a pivotal role in laying the groundwork for the nation we know today, earning his place as one of America's Founding Fathers.
The creatives of Hamilton
Hamilton’s book, music and lyrics are by Lin-Manuel Miranda and is directed by Thomas Kail. The musical features choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, scenic design by David Korins, lighting design by Howell Binkley, sound design by Nevin Steinberg, costume design by Paul Tazewell, and hair and wig design by Charles G. LaPointe.
