The portrayal of Alexander Hamilton's life, taking place during the late 1700s, is equally inspiring and devastating. The musical transcends time and intriguing due to its expertly explored themes of love, tragedy, pardoning, and aspiration. The tale is skillfully expressed through hip-hop, showcasing a varied ensemble of black and brown actors. “It takes on a unique significance when you observe black and brown entertainers narrating the origins of our country,” noted musician Lin Manuel Miranda.
The Guardian remarked on the show's distinctive context and shared only laudatory opinions. The author stated, “Its energetic opening scenes recollect us of that great American ideal of equal rights and touch on slavery and civil rights in the 18th century. “I never expect making it past 20. Where I come from, some receive half as many,” chants Hamilton at the commencement, and his words resonate the precarious destiny that awaits countless of America’s black or immigrant underprivileged stratum now, as debates around Black Lives Matter protests have emphasized.”
It’s true - the musical score of Hamilton is distinct from any other Broadway musical. The diversity of music styles, including hip-hop, pop, and R&B, distinguishes Hamilton apart from other stage shows. During the musical's 46 songs, the cast sing and rap about 20,000 lyrics at a pace of about 144 words per minute. In addition to its many accomplishments, Hamilton the Musical achieved something a handful of stage shows have actually achieved: a Pulitzer Prize. This critically acclaimed musical garnered an additional accolade to its collection when it won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2016.
Fun fact: The lines in "Guns and Ships" claim the title for the fastest spoken words in Broadway musical record. It’s indeed a remarkable song!
