How Hamilton Made Musical Theater History

The Broadway smash show, Hamilton, has made history by mixing hip-hop with musical theater. Lin-Manuel Miranda and the show he wrote were awarded Tonys for Best Musical, Best Score, Featured Actor and Actress, Best Direction and more – not to mention a Grammy, Drama Desk Award and a Pulitzer Prize. This course will explore the long relationship between popular music and Broadway, social messages in musical theater, the genius of Lin-Manuel Miranda and the nearly hip-hop life of the real Alexander Hamilton. The multimedia presentation includes live performances.
