This account of Alexander Hamilton's life, taking place during the late 1700s, is equally inspiring and devastating. The musical remains timeless and captivating owing to its masterfully addressed themes of love, loss, pardoning, and aspiration. The story is skillfully told through hip-hop, featuring a multicultural ensemble of black and brown actors. “It adopts a unique significance when you witness black and brown performers narrating the origins of our nation,” stated musician Lin Manuel Miranda.
The Guardian expressed on the show's unique setting and expressed nothing but praiseworthy remarks. The author stated, “Its energetic opening scenes recollect us of that great American ideal of equality and address slavery and civil rights in the 18th century. “I didn't anticipate making it past 20. Where I originated, some receive only half that,” sings 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 talks around Black Lives Matter demonstrations have actually highlighted.”
