Hamilton Play New York

Hamilton is the multi Tony Award, Grammy award and Pulitzer prize winning musical from Lin-Manuel Miranda. The Broadway show follows the story of founding father Alexander Hamilton, with the most unlikely success of an orphan who made his way through life to become an American war hero and George Washington's right hand man. His ambition is inspiring and with the modern twist of hip hop, the Hamilton play is appealing to the masses! The Hamilton play was inspired by the biography 'Alexander Hamilton' written by historian Ron Chernow in 2004. Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote the libretto for Hamilton.
