This account of Alexander Hamilton's life, taking place during the late 1700s, is both uplifting and heartbreaking. The musical stays ageless and fascinating because of its skillfully tackled themes of love, tragedy, pardoning, and ambition. The tale is artfully conveyed through hip-hop, showcasing a multicultural cast of black and brown actors. “It adopts a unique significance when you observe black and brown entertainers narrating the origins of our country,” remarked musician Lin Manuel Miranda.
The Guardian remarked on the production's distinctive setting and expressed nothing but laudatory views. The writer expressed, “Its energetic opening scenes recollect us of that grand American concept of equal rights and address slavery and civil rights in the 18th century. “I never expect making it past 20. Where I originated, some receive half as many,” chants Hamilton at the beginning, and his lyrics echo the dangerous destiny that is in store for so many of America’s black or immigrant underprivileged class now, as discussions concerning Black Lives Matter demonstrations have highlighted.”
It’s true - the musical score of Hamilton is different from any other Broadway musical. The variety of music styles, encompassing hip-hop, pop, and R&B, sets Hamilton apart from other musicals. Throughout the musical's 46 songs, the characters deliver and rap approximately 20,000 words at a pace of roughly 144 words per minute. In addition to its many accomplishments, Hamilton the Musical achieved something a small number of stage shows have actually achieved: a Pulitzer Prize. This critically acclaimed musical added another accolade to its list of honors when it won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2016.
