Description
From Tony Award-winning composer-lyricist-star Lin-Manuel Miranda comes a backstage pass to his groundbreaking, hit musical Hamilton.Hamilton has it all--romance, drama, violence, patriotism, adventure, and more--combine that with the foundational story of our nation, and you've got an audiobook that's bound to be an American classic. "One of the most exhilarating experiences I've had in a theater." said David Brooks. "This show will be talked about in years to come as a benchmark experience," said Peter Marks, theater critic for the Washington Post. Audience members leave Hamilton wanting more--more details about the many dramatic episodes in Alexander Hamilton's life and further analysis of the musical's lyrics and their meaning. This audiobook will include a PDF disc of behind-the-scenes photos of the show that evokes the spirit of the musical, giving listeners the same enthralling mix of history, personality, and inspiration that Miranda has achieved on stage.

display_description Winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Eleven Tony Awards, including Best Musical
Lin-Manuel Miranda's groundbreaking musical Hamilton is as revolutionary as its subject, the poor kid from the Caribbean who fought the British, defended the Constitution, and helped to found the United States. Fusing hip-hop, pop, R&B, and the best traditions of theater, this once-in-a-generation show broadens the sound of Broadway, reveals the storytelling power of rap, and claims our country's origins for a diverse new generation.

HAMILTON: THE REVOLUTION gives readers an unprecedented view of both revolutions, from the only two writers able to provide it. Miranda, along with Jeremy McCarter, a cultural critic and theater artist who was involved in the project from its earliest stages—"since before this was even a show," according to Miranda—traces its development from an improbable perfor­mance at the White House to its landmark opening night on Broadway six years later. In addition, Miranda has written more than 200 funny, revealing footnotes for his award-winning libretto, the full text of which is published here.

Their account features photos by the renowned Frank Ockenfels and veteran Broadway photographer, Joan Marcus; exclusive looks at notebooks and emails; interviews with Questlove, Stephen Sond­heim, leading political commentators, and more than 50 people involved with the production; and multiple appearances by Presi­dent Obama himself. The book does more than tell the surprising story of how a Broadway musical became a national phenomenon: It demonstrates that America has always been renewed by the brash upstarts and brilliant outsiders, the men and women who don't throw away their shot.
