Hamilton Plot Summary

Hamilton celebrates the US founding fathers, showing the excitement of the revolution and the identity of America that is shaped by an immigrant called Alexander Hamilton. Directed by Thomas Kail and with a book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, this astonishing musical explores the birth of a nation under the rhythms of rap, hip-hop, and R&B. But contrary to the expectations, "the form fits the subject", as Michael Billington of The Guardian says. The story follows Hamilton, who is "a bastard, orphan, son of a whore and a Scotsman", as the play lets us know. He leaves the Caribbean and arrives in America to become George Washington's right-hand man, a secretary of the treasury and an interpreter of the constitution. But there's more to the plot. Expect a marriage, a sex scandal and a duel with a rival. The lyrics are exploring political topics and referring to Shakespeare and WS Gilbert under upbeat musical numbers that are pleasing and energetic. Ben Brantley of The New York Times gives a high review, saying, "A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, 'Hamilton' is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals." And David Cote of Time Out NY makes a bold statement, "I love Hamilton. I love it like I love New York, or Broadway when it gets it right." Spare a few hours to see one of Broadway's best-rated musicals that will transfer you back in time to learn about America's formation and spirit. History lovers and musical fans, rejoice. This show is here to stay.
