Leaving the Sidelines
Alexander Hamilton is a name often read about in history books but sometimes left out of popular culture works about the Revolutionary War. Resonating with the idea of being sidelined, Lin-Manuel Miranda wanted to explore Hamilton further through drama. Miranda gained his inspiration for Hamilton from Ron Chernow’s biography Alexander Hamilton. After writing the book, music and lyrics for the show, Miranda brought his vision to life when Hamilton opened on Broadway on August 6, 2015. Fans couldn’t get enough of Hamilton, and a second production opened in Chicago in September 2016. Two national tours were soon to follow: The Angelica tour began its run in March 2017, and the Philip tour set off across the country in February 2018.
