The depiction of Alexander Hamilton's life, set in the late 1700s, is both inspiring and devastating. The musical remains timeless and captivating owing to its skillfully tackled themes of love, tragedy, pardoning, and aspiration. The story is artfully conveyed through hip-hop, featuring a varied cast of black and brown performers. “It adopts a distinct meaning when you observe black and brown performers narrating the beginnings of our land,” stated composer Lin Manuel Miranda.
The Guardian expressed on the show's unique context and expressed nothing but positive opinions. The author stated, “Its rousing opening scenes recollect us of that great American ideal of equal rights and address slavery and civil rights in the 18th century. “I didn't expect making it past 20. Where I come from, some get half as many,” chants Hamilton at the beginning, and his words reverberate the precarious destiny that awaits so many of America’s black or immigrant disadvantaged class now, as talks around Black Lives Matter demonstrations have highlighted.”
It’s true - the musical score of Hamilton is unlike any other Broadway musical. The variety of musical genres, encompassing hip-hop, pop, and R&B, sets apart Hamilton apart from other stage shows. In the course of the musical's 46 songs, the characters perform and rap approximately 20,000 lyrics at a pace of about 144 words per minute. Besides its abundant accomplishments, Hamilton the Musical attained something a small number of theatrical productions have achieved: a Pulitzer Prize. This well-received musical added an additional accolade to its list of honors when it earned the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2016.
Fun fact: The lines in "Guns and Ships" claim the record for the fastest spoken lyrics in Broadway musical record. It’s truly a breath-stealing song!
