About the show

Join Frank Rizzo, Variety theater critic and Yale School of Drama lecturer, for an in-depth look at Lin-Manuel Miranda and the creation of the musical "Hamilton."  More…

Frank offers a fresh and personal perspective of the show, from its beginnings as a "concept album" to its "landmark musical" status. You will learn why “Hamilton” is considered a “landmark musical”, and not just a "rap musical”. Frank will explain the show’s evolution from concept album to full-fledged production, and compare critiques and interpretations of its various show-stoppers.
