Hamilton: The Man & the Musical


With Ray & Marie Raphael, authors/historians

In history books Thomas Jefferson, a Republican, backs the common man while Alexander Hamilton, a Federalist, champions strong government and monied interests. He's the manipulative insider. Lin-Manuel Miranda's musical instead casts Hamilton as the rising, heroic immigrant outsider, devoid of wealth and lineage. Fact? Fiction? Why does it matter?
