Hamilton St. Louis Tickets
Hamilton St. Louis TicketsHamilton made its debut at The Public Theater in 2015 and quickly moved to Broadway. Since then, the show has become something of a phenomenon. Based on a biography of one of the founding fathers, in many ways this show was an unlikely success. As a play about 18th-century figures, it sounded potentially stiff and fussy. Lin-Manuel Miranda's show, however, is anything but.Instead of sticking to period details, his play is proudly modern. In fact, the casting is deliberately diverse, with Black and Latin actors portraying white people. Hamilton is a sung-through musical that tells its story with hip-hop and R&B, in addition to more traditional melodies. Though George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, the Marquis de Lafayette and even King George III are present onstage, they don't seem like far-off figures. In his writing, Miranda focused on what made these characters relatable, and audiences have responded in a big way.
The Founding Father Without a FatherThe thing most Americans know about Alexander Hamilton is that he died after a duel with Aaron Burr. He's also famous for being a constitutional delegate and one of the writers of The Federalist Papers. Working from Ron Chernow's biography, Lin-Manuel Miranda has uncovered the human side of this famous political figure. Miranda saw several commonalities between Hamilton and the people from his own neighborhood. Alexander Hamilton came to the US from the West Indies. His father was out of the picture, and he was raised by a single mother. Hamilton also had incredible self-confidence and ambition. In this man, Miranda saw a very relatable figure. His story is in many ways a conventional rags-to-riches tale, with a final tragic twist.
