Hamilton: How the Musical Remixes American History
February 3, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm$18
In this special presentation, historian Dr. Richard Bell examines this musical phenomenon — being staged at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts through February 10 — to reveal what its success tells us about the marriage of history and show business.
Guests have the opportunity to learn what this amazing musical got right and got wrong about Alexander Hamilton, the American Revolution, and the birth of the United States, and why it all matters. Examine some of the choices Hamilton’s creators made to simplify, dramatize, and humanize the complicated events and stories on which the show is based.
Explore Hamilton’s cultural impact and what its runaway success reveals about the stories we tell each other about who we are and about the nation we made. The program includes various illustrative video clips. Program recommended for ages 14 and up due to adult themes and strong language.
