Summary

Summary: 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, rhythm and blues, 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 listeners a view, unprecedented, 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. Miranda, in addition, has written and recorded 300 funny, revealing footnotes for his award-winning libretto, the full text of which is published here. A PDF on the final disc features photos by the renowned Frank Ockenfels and Joan Marcus, veteran Broadway photographer; exclusive looks at notebooks and emails; interviews with Questlove, Stephen Sondheim, leading political commentators, and more than fifty people involved with the production; and multiple appearances by President Obama himself. The audiobook 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 do not throw away their shot. -- Container.
