"Hamilton" is the story of America then, told by America now. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B, and show tunes, "Hamilton" has taken the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theater--a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics, and education. Captured at the Richard Rodgers Theater on Broadway in June 2016, the film transports its audience into the world of the Broadway show in a uniquely intimate way.

He couldn't find the right place for the scene and decided instead to show the falling out in the introduction to Thomas Jefferson, where Madison mentions the problems Hamilton has been causing while Jefferson was in France.
