ACROSS THE POND: Hamilton on Broadway
After a much talked about run at The Public Theatre off-Broadway, Hamilton will re-open on the great white way this summer.
Lin Manuel Miranda takes the stage as the unlikely founding father determined to make his mark on the new nation as hungry and ambitious as he is. From bastard orphan to Washington’s right hand man, rebel to war hero, a loving husband caught in the country’s first sex scandal, to the Treasury head who made an untrusting world believe in the American economy. George Washington, Eliza Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson and Hamilton’s lifelong friend/foil Aaron Burr all make their mark in this astonishing new musical exploration of a political mastermind.
Featuring a hip-hop soundtrack and ground-breaking choreography, this is history as you’ve never seen it before.
