- Program Note from publisher

Hamilton: An American Musical is a sung-through musical about the life of American founding father Alexander Hamilton, with music, lyrics and book by Lin-Manuel Miranda. The show, inspired by the 2004 biography Alexander Hamilton by historian Ron Chernow, achieved both critical acclaim and box office success.

- Program Note from Wikipedia

Miranda’s ingenious wordplay paints a strikingly human portrait of Alexander Hamilton -- his orphan upbringing, meteoric rise to prominence in early American politics, and the unrelenting ambition that ultimately hastened his fall. Miranda based his depiction of Hamilton on Ron Chernow’s 2004 biography, which makes the show as educational as it is entertaining. And there is plenty of entertainment. The hip-hop basis of much of the music gives the show a continual forward energy, and when the ensemble bursts out in more traditional song, the effect is electrifying. At its heart is the story of a man who “wrote his way out” of poverty and isolation, and into a central place in the story of our nation’s founding. Hamilton’s story becomes the story of his country as a whole—the underdog that refuses to “throw away its shot.”
