Season Two

Hamilton (Part 1)

Part 1 takes us all the way back to 2008 when Lin-Manuel Miranda picked up Ron Chernow’s book for the first time and, as Lin says, heard hip hop songs rising off the pages. From there, Lin begins work on a concept album called The Hamilton Mixtape. After a fateful performance of the Mixtape, the wheels are set in motion to develop the album into an off-Broadway musical in partnership with The Public Theater. As the off-Broadway production approached opening night, the creative team knew the work was good, but as The Public Theater’s Oskar Eustis says, anybody who says they knew what Hamilton would become is lying.
