Hamilton is a musical that has taken the world by storm. And on December 1, PBS airs an encore Hamilton’s America, the documentary that first aired in 2016.
“Hamilton: An American Musical is a sung and rapped through musical about the life of American Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, with music, lyrics and book by Lin-Manuel Miranda inspired by the 2004 biography Alexander Hamilton by historian Ron Chernow. Notably incorporating hip-hop, rhythm and blues, pop music, soul music, traditional style show tunes and color-conscious casting of non-white actors as the Founding Fathers and other historical figures, the musical achieved both critical acclaim and box office success (Wikipedia).”
According to TV Guide, Hamilton’s America directed by Alex Horwitz is “a look at the creation of “Hamilton,” Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical about U.S. founding father Alexander Hamilton. Included: excerpts from the New York production with its original cast; and trips to Mount Vernon and Valley Forge with Miranda and other cast members.”
Don’t miss Hamilton’s America airing Friday, December 1 at 9/8c on PBS. Check your local listings for a station in your area.
