Winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Eleven Tony Awards; including Best Musical\n\nLin-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.\n\nHAMILTON: 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.\n\nTheir 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.
