Talk: Hamilton, Hope, and Change

Talks at Google hosted Jeremy McCarter, co-author of HAMILTON: THE REVOLUTION and the forthcoming book YOUNG RADICALS, for a talk on December 15th, 2016. McCarter’s essays and backstage profiles in HAMILTON: THE REVOLUTION are based in part on his early involvement in the show, when he spent five years on the artistic staff of the Public Theater in New York. They reveal how Miranda and his collaborators created a show about a revolution that is a revolution in its own right. YOUNG RADICALS tells the story of five Americans who push for equality, women’s rights, and free expression in a moment of great promise for American life, only to see those ideals put at risk when they discover the country isn’t at all what they thought it to be.

Hamilton: The Revolution

Lin-Manuel Miranda's groundbreaking musical Hamilton is as revolutionary as its subject, the poor kid from the Caribbean who fought the British, defended the Constitution, and helped to found the United States. Fusing hip-hop, pop, R&B, and theater, this show broadens the sound of Broadway, reveals the storytelling power of rap, and claims our country's origins for a diverse new generation.
