This account of Alexander Hamilton's life, occurring in the late 1700s, is both uplifting and devastating. The musical stays ageless and captivating due to its expertly explored themes of affection, tragedy, forgiveness, and aspiration. The tale is artfully expressed through hip-hop, featuring a multicultural cast of black and brown actors. “It adopts a unique significance when you observe black and brown performers narrating the origins of our nation,” remarked musician Lin Manuel Miranda.
The Guardian expressed on the show's distinctive context and shared only positive views. The author stated, “Its energetic opening scenes remind us of that grand American ideal of equal rights and mention slavery and civil rights in the 18th century. “I never foresee making it past 20. In the place where I come from, some receive only half that,” sings Hamilton at the start, and his words echo the perilous destiny that awaits so many of America’s black or immigrant disadvantaged class now, as debates around Black Lives Matter protests have emphasized.”
It’s a fact - the musical score of Hamilton is different from any other Broadway musical. The variety of music styles, including hip-hop, pop, and R&B, sets apart Hamilton apart from other stage shows. Throughout the musical's 46 songs, the characters sing and rap roughly 20,000 words at a pace of about 144 words per minute. Besides its many accomplishments, Hamilton the Musical earned something few stage shows have actually achieved: a Pulitzer Prize. This critically acclaimed musical secured another accolade to its collection when it won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2016.
Fun fact: The lyrics in "Guns and Ships" claim the title for the fastest spoken words in Broadway musical record. It’s absolutely a breath-stealing song!
