Show Synopsis: Hamilton: An American Musical is a sung-and-rapped through musical about the life of American Founding Father –Alexander Hamilton, with music, lyrics and book by Lin-Manuel Miranda, inspired by the 2004 biography Alexander Hamilton by historian Ron Chernow. Incorporating hip hop, R&B, pop, soul, traditional-style show tunes, and color-conscious casting of non-white actors as the Founding Fathers and other historical figures, the musical achieved both critical acclaim and box office success.
The play has two acts, telling Hamilton’s story through major events in his life and American history. It tells Hamilton’s life from beginning to end along with various other characters such as Marquis De Lafayette, Aaron Burr, John Laurens, Hercules Mulligan, Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton, Angelica Schuyler, Peggy Schuyler and Phillip Hamilton and former presidents George Washington, James Madison, and Thomas Jefferson.
