In February 2015, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton: An American Musical debuted to critical acclaim and became an instant hit. But just how historically accurate is it? Does Miranda’s hip-hop take on the Founding Fathers offer a bold and positive vision for our nation’s future, or does it misrepresent the past? Can a musical so unabashedly contemporary still communicate historical truths about American culture and politics? And is Hamilton as revolutionary as its creators and many commentators claim?
Please join us for a special performance and a night of lively discussion with editors Claire Bond Potter and Renee C.
