About Hamilton

Hamilton is a musical by the American composer and actor Lin-Manuel Miranda that was composed over a seven-year period from 2008 to 2015. The musical tells the story of American Founding Father Alexander Hamilton.

Miranda says Hamilton was originally a hip-hop album in his head. However, the musical features not only hip-hop but also R&B, pop, soul, and traditional-style show tunes. The cast consists of non-white actors as the Founding Fathers of the United States and other historical figures.

Lin-Manuel Miranda wanted Present-America to tell the story of Past-America. He describes Hamilton as "America then, as told by America now."
