On January 20, 2015, The Public Theater premiered a new musical on Ron Chernow’s 832-page biography of U.S. Treasury founder Alexander Hamilton and set off a theater revolution. Casting only people of color as the Founding Fathers and adeptly blending hip-hop and Broadway showstoppers in ways that felt both authentic and exhilarating, Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda became a household name across America. New Yorker writer and host Adam Gopnik and special guests, including actor Christopher Jackson, the show’s original George Washington, delve into the genesis of Broadway’s hottest ticket.
