Hamilton





This biographical musical, with music, lyrics, and book by Tony, Emmy, and Grammy Award-winner Lin-Manuel Miranda, is inspired by Ron Chernow’s 2004 biography “Alexander Hamilton.”


Story:

Alexander Hamilton, a bastard orphan, is an American on the outside. With his fierce patriotism and willing perseverance, though, he rises through the military and political ranks, becoming an indispensable ally for some of America’s most renowned early heros. His story includes such struggles as the young nation’s first sex scandal and a long-time rivalry with Aaron Burr, all en route to his becoming head of the nation’s Treasury.

Special Award for Andy Blankenbuehler: For his inspired and heart-stopping choreography in Hamilton, which is indispensible to the musical's storytelling. His body of work is versatile, yet a dynamic and fluid style is consistently evident. When it's time to "take his shot," Blankenbuehler hits the bull's-eye.
