Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Hamilton” debuted in 2015 and quickly rose to critical acclaim. Based on the life of Alexander Hamilton, one of the United States’ founding fathers, the musical marries hip-hop, R&B, pop, and traditional show tunes. This performance is full of ingenious writing, mesmerizing choreography, and compelling narrative.
