  • Book and music

    By Hangar House
    I live in the New York metropolitan area and haven’t been able to get tickets – – no surprise. So I bought this book and the soundtrack at the same time. I read each chapter, I read the footnotes for each song and then listened to the song for the first time. It was an incredibly moving experience. It will never be the same now that I know the material so well. It was an incredibly moving experience. I can’t wait to be blown away see it on Broadway.

    This is good
  • enlightening

    By Toni FGMAMTC
    This is a behind the scenes look at everything involved with the making of Hamilton. It tells how it came to be, how changes were made, who was associated with each part and all the other background information. It explains the importance of this production and the parallels between it and other historical events. I found it interesting, and it made me want to see the performance for myself.
  • Hamilton, the Musical is Simply Brilliant

    By Hlenow
    I can't wait until December when we get to attend Hamilton in Chicago. I have listened to the score twenty times, but the brilliance came alive when I read this book while listening along with the music. I am also reading Ron Chernow's biography of Hamilton, upon which this musical is based. This book, laced with insights about the production, brings that much more richness to my appreciation of this original, ground breaking show. Everyone should read through this book before going to the show. It was mesmerizing.
  • Racist

    By Chefkevie
    Saw this play. Im a history teacher and this guy wrote a bunch of nice songs, but its not ironic to have minorities play slave owners. Next its 12 years a Slave the rap album with 50 cent as the Michael Fassbender character.
