Hamilton: The Revolution Book


Hamilton: The Revolution Book

HAMILTON: THE REVOLUTION gives readers an unprecedented view of the smash-hit musical Hamilton, from the only two writers able to provide it. Lin-Manuel Miranda, along with Jeremy McCarter, a cultural critic and theater artist who was involved in the project from its earliest stages, trace 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 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.
