As the title suggests, the musical centres on the life of Alexander Hamilton, who was orphaned and moved to New York in the hope of a better life. While there, the smart up-start impressed with his hunger for revolution and reform, to take the United States away from British forces. The story sees Hamilton become George Washington’s right-hand man, fall in love, and go on to become the first Secretary of the Treasury of the United States.

The seeds for the Hamilton musical were planted when composer Lin-Manuel Miranda was taking a well-earned break from starring in another of his hit musicals, In the Heights. At the airport, he purchased a copy of Ron Chernow’s biography, Alexander Hamilton. Within a few pages, Miranda started to envision the revolutionary’s life in musical form.

Lin-Manuel Miranda embarked on the project in 2009 by penning The Hamilton Mixtape — a number of songs that would later go on to form the show. During this time, he was invited to the White House to perform at an evening of Poetry, Music, and Spoken Word in front of President Barack Obama and the First Lady. He treated audiences to a snippet from the show he was working on, the song “Alexander Hamilton”, which was met with scattered laughter from the crowd.

After workshopping the mixtape, Hamilton finally received its Off-Broadway premiere at the Public Theater in 2015, before later transferring to Broadway at the Richard Rodgers Theatre (incidentally, where In The Heights had its Broadway premiere).

Hamilton musical won the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, making it the first musical to win the award since 2010 and the 9th musical to win the accolade since 1930.

Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote the Hamilton musical. His Hamilton score features a fusion of emotive songs that combine hip-hop, R&B, soul, and classical musical theatre numbers, while the musical is entirely sung-through by its cast. Since its premiere, Hamilton shot into the public consciousness. It won 11 Tony Awards including Outstanding Musical and all four acting categories.
