"HAMILTON" THE POPULAR SHOW
EVERY ONE WANTS TO SEE IS
NOW AT THE BROWARD CENTER
"Hamilton," an American Musical, sung and rapped through music is about the life of American founding father, Alexander Hamilton, with music, lyrics, and book by Lin-Manuel Miranda, inspired by the 2004 biography of Alexander Hamilton written by Ron Chernow.
The show is an achievement of historical and cultural reimagining. The costumes and set reflect the period, with velvet frock coats and knee britches. The show revolves around the life of one of the Founding Fathers of America, and how he made his mark in American politics.
Hamilton is a story about America, and the most beautiful thing about it is ....it's told by such a diverse cast with such diverse styles of music,"according to Renee Elise Goldberry, who played Angelica Schuyler. Although Hamilton was based on historical events and people, Miranda did use some dramatic license in retelling the story. For example while Angelica did have a strong relationship with Hamilton, it was exaggerated in the show.
In 2015 the U. S. Department of the Treasury announced a redesign of the $10 bill, with plans to replace Hamilton with a then-undecided woman from American history. Because of Hamilton's surging popularity, almost exclusively due to the musical, the United States Treasury Secretary Jack Lew reversed the plans to replace Hamilton's portrait.
Hamilton has been awarded almost every award possible, in every category, that has ever been awarded for a musical, leaving audiences clamoring for tickets.
Tickets are now available from $78 to $198, and up, at the Broward Center, through Ticketmaster. There is a 4 ticket limit. Performances are in the Au-Rene Theatre, opening December 18, 2018 through January 20, 2019. For all other information call the box office at 954-462-0222, located at 201 S.W. Fifth Avenue, Fort Lauderdale. Group sales call 954-660-6307. *Show contains strong language. Not for children.
