Hamilton by Lin-Manuel Miranda & Jeremy McCarter Book Summary

A backstage pass to the groundbreaking, hit musical Hamilton, winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Eleven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, including the award-winning libretto, behind-the-scenes photos and interviews, and exclusive footnotes from composer-lyricist-star Lin-Manuel Miranda, now streaming on Disney+ with the original cast.
Lin-Manuel Miranda's groundbreaking musical Hamilton is as revolutionary as its subject, the poor kid from the Caribbean who fought the British, defended the Constitution, and helped to found the United States. Fusing hip-hop, pop, R&B, and the best traditions of theater, this once-in-a-generation show broadens the sound of Broadway, reveals the storytelling power of rap, and claims our country's origins for a diverse new generation.

Hamilton: The Revolution gives readers an unprecedented view of both revolutions, from the only two writers able to provide it. Miranda, along with Jeremy McCarter, a cultural critic and theater artist who was involved in the project from its earliest stages -- "since before this was even a show," according to Miranda -- traces its development from an improbable performance at the White House to its landmark opening night on Broadway six years later. In addition, Miranda has written more than 200 funny, revealing footnotes for his award-winning libretto, the full text of which is published here.

Their account features photos by the renowned Frank Ockenfels and veteran Broadway photographer, Joan Marcus; exclusive looks at notebooks and emails; interviews with Questlove, Stephen Sondheim, leading political commentators, and more than 50 people involved with the production; and multiple appearances by President Obama himself. The book does more than tell the surprising story of how a Broadway musical became a national phenomenon: It demonstrates that America has always been renewed by the brash upstarts and brilliant outsiders, the men and women who don't throw away their shot.

Hamilton (Lin-Manuel Miranda & Jeremy McCarter) Book Reviews

Book and musicI 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..Score: 5/5

Best thing I’ve ever read.I LOVE HAMILTON. Being a big fan of this American musical and having the opportunity to understand the method of the genius we know—that is no other than Lin-Manuel Miranda—used to convey millions of feelings in an audience including me, while teaching history is OUTSTANDING. I recommend reading this book and watching Hamilton on Disney+..Score: 5/5

RacistSaw 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..Score: 1/5

HelplessI have but just opened this book, and by doing so opened up a new world I was previously unaware of. The insight, the style of writing, the story itself has gripped onto me from the first word and has yet to let me go. Hamilton (the musical) has been my object of obsession for quite a period of time now and has inspired me like nothing has before. Well experienced in the excitement of a newly discovered Broadway (or otherwise) show, I never expected the amount dedicated, immaculate thought that contributed to the musical and the work behind the scenes. If you are a theater fan, you will love this book. If you are a history nerd, you will admire the cleverness of the lyrics, if you are an APUSH student in need of a lesson on Period 2, you will immensely appreciate the wealth of information packed into each song. If you are a rapper or in desperate need of rapping skills, Mr. Lin has got you covered. If you are any human being on this planet you will feel uplifted, inspired, and see the world through new eyes. I know this was supposed to be a review of the book, but anything and everything related Mr. Lin is amazing. I hope someday to thank him and Mr. Jeremy in person for the piece of pure art they have created, and maybe someday get a ticket to see the show. If Hamilton himself heard the sensational sound that is Lin's music, he would say that "THIS guy did not throw away his shot." And thank goodness he didn't because now we (his fans and admirers) can tell his story. One last time, thank you! You blew us all away and, although we have no control who live, who dies, and who tells our story, there are a lot of people who are going to make sure your story gets told. History has its eyes on you, Mr. Lin. No pressure...😉❤️⭐️☄ ~Sarah G.Score: 5/5

EnlighteningThis 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..Score: 4/5

Hamilton, the Musical is Simply BrilliantI 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..Score: 5/5
