PBS does 'Hamilton' proud!
10 March 2017 | by LiquidPoetry1921See all my reviews

If you were unable (like most of us) to score a ticket to one of the most successful musicals in Broadway history, this documentary in PBS's 'Great Performances' series is an absolute must-see!

From the ironic way 'Hamilton' creator Lin-Manuel Miranda stumbled upon the history of Alexander Hamilton, to the way he decided to turn it into a hip-hop production, this documentary beautifully explores the history of Miranda's masterpiece.

Filled with commentaries from individuals such as Ron Chernow, the Hamilton biographer who penned Miranda's inspiration for the play, to words of praise from former Presidents George Bush and Barack Obama, to hearing from Leslie Odom, Jr., the amazing actor who portrayed Aaron Burr, this program provides insights that may have been previously unknown by PBS viewers. One of those 'insights' came from Miranda himself, explaining how he based the Hamilton/Burr rivalry on feuding rap adversaries Tupac and Biggie. Just one of the MANY things you'll learn from this marvelous show!

In short, if you've missed seeing the phenomenal theatre production of "Hamilton"...or even if you have, PBS's "Hamilton's America" is must-see viewing for every member of the family!
