Lin-Manuel Miranda takes us inside the making of his groundbreaking American musical Hamilton, winner of eleven Tonys, as well as the Pulitzer Prize, and a Grammy Award. We follow Miranda, his collaborators, and key members of the original cast on their exploration of the history that inspired the show, visiting locations from Valley Forge to the West Wing. We also track the show’s journey, from the moment Miranda thrilled the Obamas at the White House in 2009 to the first year of its blockbuster run on Broadway. Hamilton’s America debuts at the festival in advance of its PBS Great Performances broadcast. A RadicalMedia and PBS Great Performances documentary.
*Special guests to appear at October 1 and 2 screenings
