Product Description

Winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama Lin-Manuel Miranda's groundbreaking musical "Hamilton" is as revolutionary as its subject, the poor kid from the Caribbean who fought the British, defended the Constitution, and helped to found the United States.

Fusing hip-hop, pop, R&B, and the best traditions of theatre, this once-in-a-generation show broadens the sound of Broadway, reveals the storytelling power of rap, and claims our country's origins for a diverse new generation.

Hamilton : The Revolution gives readers an unprecedented view of both revolutions, from the only two writers able to provide it. Miranda, along with Jeremy McCarter, a cultural critic and theatre artist who was involved in the project from its earliest stages--"since before this was even a show," according to Miranda traces its development from an improbable performance at the White House to its landmark opening night on Broadway six years later. In addition, Miranda has written more than 200 funny, revealing footnotes for his award-winning libretto, the full text of which is published here.

Their account features photos by the renowned Frank Ockenfels and veteran Broadway photographer, Joan Marcus; exclusive looks at notebooks and emails; interviews with Questlove, Stephen Sondheim, leading political commentators, and more than 50 people involved with the production; and multiple appearances by President Obama himself.

The book does more than tell the surprising story of how a Broadway musical became a national phenomenon: It demonstrates that America has always been renewed by the brash upstarts and brilliant outsiders, the men and women who don't throw away their shot."

Absolutely gorgeous!

Great collectible book for anyone interested in musical theatre, songwriting, or Broadway. The book is laid out like an 18th century document, with beautiful headings and type, and the paper quality is insane, thick and luscious with torn edges. The photography is lovely. It's a great look in to the workings of a Broadway show, the difficulty in translating American history in to modern contexts, and the art form of theatre in general. Hamilton is a fantastic show, with lots of intricacies and layers, and the book does a great job of delving into its journey to the stage, including all of the lyrics, backstories on each original actor, and history behind the writing. 10/10
