Hamilton is the musical on everyone’s lips. It has won the heart of millions seemingly overnight, completely storming the Tony’s by winning eleven awards (out of sixteen nominations) this year. No one can stop talking about it, and I am one of those people.
Based on the life of Alexander Hamilton, one of America’s Founding Fathers, it doesn’t initially sound like musical material. Until you find out that it’s musical format is hip hop and R&B, and the historical figures are played by people of colour. Before I even go any further, I’m just gonna tell you now – go listen to it. I don’t care if you’re not into musicals, you will not regret listening to this cast album.
