"Hamilton" is the story of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and was the new nation’s first Treasury Secretary. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B, and Broadway, "Hamilton" is the story of America then, told by America now.
With book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, "Hamilton" is based on Ron Chernow’s biography of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton.
How does a bastard, orphan, son of a whore, and Scotsman dropped in the middle of a forgotten spot in the Caribbean by providence, impoverished, grow up to be a hero and a scholar? That’s the question that launches Lin-Manuel Miranda’s epic reinvention of the tale of the American Founding Father, first Secretary of the Treasury, and author of the Federalist Papers, Alexander Hamilton.

Surrounding Hamilton are George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and more. They make mischief throughout the Hamilton musical as they try to navigate the behemoth task of creating a government and founding a country. You’ll never look at America the same way again.
Hamilton on Broadway has become one of the biggest hits and hottest tickets the industry has seen in years and has catapulted Miranda, who wrote the book, music, and lyrics, to household name status. Earning a record-breaking 16 Tony Award nominations, the show won 11 trophies, including Best Musical and awards for director Thomas Kail and choreographer Andy Blankenbuehler, Miranda’s longtime collaborators.
The musical had its world premiere downtown New York at The Public Theater in 2015 before transferring later that year to the Richard Rodgers Theatre, where it’s certain to be playing for a long time.
