Hamilton is a musical that looks at the life of founding father Alexander Hamilton. Some have said it’s a musical about how America was then looking at it through the lens of now. Although the show tells the story of early American history, it doesn't use archaic language nor old-time music to do so. Instead, the musical takes advantage of hip-hop’s freshness to bring this historical drama to life in the 21st century. It's a rousing, multi-award-winning show that's sure to leave Cincinnati audiences tapping their toes until the very end.
More Than Just a Musical
Many musicals are known to mix both spoken and sung text. However, Hamilton stands apart from many other musicals in that it consists of sung words from beginning to end, which makes it more like opera. Additionally, because of its relevance in the hip-hop world, there was also a Hamilton mixtape released. That album featured 23 tracks, with musical stars like Queen Latifah, Sia, John Legend and Alicia Keys performing on the album. Beyond that, the show has gained merit for its ability to teach history in an interesting way. Aside from being a teaching tool that is now used in classrooms across the country, there is a Hamilton-related exhibition as well.
