CATEGORY: HISTORY
DESCRIPTION:

Hamilton, the record-breaking Broadway sensation, has sparked new interest in one of America’s most fascinating founding fathers. Using the musical as our backdrop, we will explore Alexander Hamilton’s remarkable story from a hardscrabble childhood in St. Croix to his meteoric rise to Secretary of the Treasury, his role in the country’s first publicized sex scandal and his fateful duel with Aaron Burr. We will discuss the lyrics, the music and why the show has “revolutionized” Broadway. Is the show historically accurate? Did Hamilton throw away his shot? Why is Lin-Manuel Miranda, the playwright, considered a literary and musical genius? This class will be fast-paced and fun. Whether you are already familiar with the music or not, you’re going to “want to be in the room where it happens.”
