More About Hamilton
If competing for one of the coveted tickets to Hamilton just doesn’t sound appealing, here are other ways you can fill the Hamilton void in your life:
- Listen to the Hamilton soundtrack Free to listen on Prime!
Tip – I tried listening to the soundtrack a few years ago and had a hard time getting into it. It wasn’t until I carved out a chunk of uninterrupted time where I could listen to the whole thing all the way through, that I got hooked! Think of the soundtrack like a movie or book on tape – you’ll get the bigger picture and capture more detail from the story if you can devote a serious amount of time to listening.

HAMILTON is the story of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and was the new nation’s first Treasury Secretary. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B, and Broadway, HAMILTON is the story of America then, as told by America now.
With book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, HAMILTON is based on Ron Chernow’s biography of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton.
The HAMILTON creative team previously collaborated on the 2008 Tony Award ® Winning Best Musical In the Heights.
