“Hamilton is about America then, as told by America now.” -Lin Manuel Miranda
Alexander Hamilton has been played by Lin Manuel Miranda in the Vassar Workshop (2013), Off Broadway (2015), Broadway (2015) and in the third tour in the USA.
Miranda casts very diverse actors to this show, could be black, latino or asian who are portraying old white figures and he said that this looks like America looks now and it’s 100% intentional, which is for sure amazing.
