Hamilton: An American Musical, a unique re-telling of the American Revolution, opened on Broadway on August 6, 2015. With the book, music and lyrics written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, this revolutionary musical tells the story of Alexander Hamilton, a founding father often sidelined from the main narrative. Set apart from other musicals about the era by featuring an ethnically-diverse cast playing the Founding Fathers, Hamilton has broken box office records and snagged numerous theatrical awards. Don’t miss your chance to see this acclaimed hip-hop musical the next time it returns to Tampa.
A Revolutionary Musical
The inspiration for Hamilton came when Lin-Manuel Miranda was reading through Ron Chernow’s biography of Alexander Hamilton. While Hamilton was an important figure in the American Revolution and the creation of the American government, Miranda noticed he was never a prominent character in popular culture. Himself the son of Puerto Rican immigrants, Miranda resonated with Hamilton’s story of being sidelined, and he saw the chance to bring this historical figure into the limelight. Since first opening on Broadway in 2015, Hamilton has continued to go strong. The musical broke a box office record in 2019, grossing over $4 million in a single week. With its massive success on Broadway, Hamilton began touring in 2017, and a second national tour began in 2018. The tours are named Angelica and Philip, respectively.
