Hamilton: An American Musical (Original Broadway Cast)

Original Broadway Cast

Atlantic Records has announced the release of ‘Hamilton (Original Broadway Cast Recording),’ the official companion to the acclaimed new musical by Tony, Grammy and Emmy Award-winner Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Produced by Alex Lacamoire, Bill Sherman, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson & Tarik “Black Thought” Trotter, founding members of the Grammy-winning hip-hop band, The Roots, ‘Hamilton (Original Broadway Cast Recording)’ marks the first album to mixed and mastered at the legendary Atlantic Records Studio in New York City.

Now playing at Broadway’s Richard Rodgers Theatre following a sold-out run at The Public Theater, Hamilton features book, music and lyrics by Tony and Grammy Award-winning composer Lin-Manuel Miranda (In The Heights), who also plays the title role. The musical is directed by Thomas Kail, with choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler and music direction and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire.

Hamilton is inspired by Ron Chernow’s biography; “Alexander Hamilton” the new musical is about the scrappy young immigrant Alexander Hamilton, the $10 Founding Father who forever changed America with his revolutionary ideas and actions. During his life cut too short, he served as George Washington’s chief aide, was the first Treasury Secretary, a loving husband and father, despised by his fellow Founding Fathers, and shot to death by Aaron Burr in their legendary duel.

Hamilton has been feted with a long list of major theatrical honors, including 10 Lucille Lortel Awards, eight Drama Desk Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, the 2015 New York Drama Critics Circle Award for “Best Musical,” and the prestigious 2015 Obie Award for “Best New American Theatre Work.”
