Hamilton has been the biggest show in musical theater since in debuted at the famed Public Theater in 2015. This show was hotly anticipated even before it premiered. Creator Lin-Manuel Miranda worked on the show for years. He performed one song for Barack Obama as early as 2009. When Hamilton finally came to Broadway, it more than matched all the hype. To the surprise of critics, it exceeded their expectations. Today, Hamilton is still one of the hottest tickets in the theater world. It's still running on Broadway. Two touring companies are taking the show to cities across America, including Charlotte.
The success of Hamilton is largely due to the vision of its creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda. Miranda wrote the book, music and lyrics for the show. He based it on Ron Chernow's biography of founding father Alexander Hamilton. In the hands of a lesser writer, this musical could have been stuffy. Instead of getting caught up in period details, Miranda threw caution to the wind. He focused on what made Alexander Hamilton relatable to today's audiences. Alexander Hamilton grew up in a fatherless home. He was very driven. He came to the US from the West Indies. He married one woman but fell in love with her sister. All of this is compelling, no matter the time. By incorporating modern music styles like R&B and rap, Miranda ensured that this musical would draw young people and people of color in.
