Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hugely popular, Tony Award-winning rap musical retells the story of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton.
Hamilton is the story of scrappy young dreamer Alexander Hamilton. An immigrant and orphan who rose to become one of the Founding Fathers, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s exuberant musical follows the political powerhouse who changed America forever. With its musical medley of classic show tunes, rap, R&B and pop, Hamilton is notable for its color-conscious casting and pro-immigration message which challenges the notion of what it means to be American.
Miguel Cervantes currently stars as Alexander Hamilton, alongside Krystal Joy Brown as Eliza Hamilton, Euan Morton as King George, Nik Walker as Aaron Burr, Jennie Harney-Fleming as Angelica Schuyler and Tamar Greene as George Washington.
Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote the book, music and lyrics for Hamilton, inspired by a 2002 biography, and also originated the role of Alexander Hamilton during workshop performances. His many accolades include a Pulitzer Prize, three Grammy Awards, three Tony Awards and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. His other writing and acting credits include In the Heights, Disney’s Moana, and Mary Poppins Returns.
Hamilton is directed by Thomas Kail, who received a Tony Award nomination for In the Heights, and choreographed by Tony and Olivier Award-winner Andy Blankenbuehler (In the Heights, Bandstand).
After making its Off-Broadway debut at the Public Theater in 2015, Hamilton was immediately hailed as a sold-out success. With international acclaim, universal praise and a truly revolutionary story at its heart, Hamilton is currently playing at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York.
