Hamilton comes to Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, following the life of a bastard, orphan, son of a whore Alexander Hamilton, who was born in the Caribbean in the late 1700s. His dad walked out, his mother died, his cousin committed suicide, a hurricane destroyed his entire town and he managed to move to America. Aaand that’s just the first song!
Over the course of three hours, re-live the life of one of Americas most remarkable founding fathers through witty hip-hop tunes and rap battles, which will no doubt leave you spellbound and satisfied.
Upon reading “Alexander Hamilton”, the 2004 biography by historian Ron Chernow, Lin-Manuel Miranda, producer of “Cats”, “Les Miserables” and “Phantom of The Opera”, saw many parallels between the struggle of Hamilton, a poor orphan who fought his way in life in New York, and the narrative of much of modern rap. Searching the idea and finding it had not been done, he set about creating Hamilton – the telling of the story of American History, using contemporary music to resonate with modern audiences more profoundly than any narrative ever has done before.
Unsurprisingly, Hamilton was a box office smash hit, and has gone on to become a global sensation on merit of it’s soundtrack alone. As a sung-through musical, the full soundtrack is certainly enough to get the gist of the play. For many, it is also enough to inspire fervent devotion; many of Hamilton’s biggest fans haven’t seen it!! With wave after wave of media hype, one reviewer famously telling readers to “mortgage their houses and lease their children” in order to acquire tickets, Hamilton has gone on to become the most in-demand musical in the world!!
From its unusual choice of musical styles, eschewing traditional musical theatre in favour of rap, hip-hop and R&B, to its unusually and poignantly racially diverse cast, to its dynamic story, bringing the history of the American Revolution to life in a way never seen before, Hamilton is truly a revolution in and of itself. Don’t miss your chance to see what the fuss is all about – get tickets while they last!!
