The real life of one of America's foremost founding fathers and first Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton. Captured live on Broadway from the Richard Rodgers Theater with the original Broadway cast.
In his 2016 book "Hamilton: The Revolution," Lin-Manuel Miranda writes that he had certain scenes from the Harry Potter books in mind when he composed some moments in Hamilton. Regarding the show's opening song, "Alexander Hamilton," Miranda refers to the point when the tempo doubles as a Harry Potter moment: "We double the tempo here because Hamilton's found his way out: He's going to double down on his education, and make himself undeniable. The image in my head is of Harry Potter finding out he's a wizard. Everything suddenly makes sense." Miranda also characterizes the song "Aaron Burr, Sir" as "basically Harry Potter meeting Draco Malfoy before meeting his real friends. Just Hamilton's luck to meet his temperamental opposite."
