The winner of 11 Tony Awards®

A Fresh Look at the Founding Fathers

Hamilton is the story of the unlikely Founding Father determined to make his mark on the new nation as hungry and ambitious as he is. From bastard orphan to Washington’s right-hand man, rebel to war hero, a loving husband caught in the country’s first sex scandal, to the Treasury head who made an untrusting world believe in the American economy.

George Washington, Eliza Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson and Hamilton’s lifelong friend/foil Aaron Burr all make their mark in this astonishing new musical exploration of a political mastermind.


A New Dawn for Broadway

Tony, Grammy, and Emmy Award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda originated the title role as the unlikely founding father determined to make his mark on a new nation as hungry and ambitious as he is. Now one of America’s preeminent artists, Lin has been honored with three Tony Awards, five Grammy Awards, two Laurence Olivier Awards, two Primetime Emmy Awards, an Annie Award, a MacArthur Fellowship Award, a Kennedy Center Honor, and a Pulitzer Prize.

‘Hamilton’ is brewing up a revolution. It’s not possible to top the adrenaline rush.”
The New York Times

“Plugged straight into the wall socket of contemporary music. This show makes me feel hopeful for the future of musical theater.”
