The "movie" is actually a 2016 filmed version of the original Broadway production starring Lin-Manuel Miranda as Alexander Hamilton and Leslie Odom, Jr as Aaron Burr.  Another familiar face you'll see is Jonathan Groff. . .although his voice may even be more famous as that of Kristoff in Frozen 2. As fans of the show have attested, the original cast that is featured in this filming are phenomenal and present a memorable performance.  Of course, one of the most popular things about Hamilton is the music - a unique blend of hip-hop, jazz, R&B, and Broadway.  

Love Lin-Manuel Miranda?  Did you know he is the mind behind the memorable music of Moana?


I can't wait to FINALLY get to see Hamilton on July 3rd and bring a full review here.  The history teacher in me has always loved learning about Alexander Hamilton as his role in founding our country was immense and I've been curious to see how his story is portrayed on stage.  Who else is with me in celebrating Independence Day this year as Hamilton comes to life for us to enjoy?
