Alexander Hamilton Becomes a Hip-Hop Mogul on Broadway

With Presidents Day in the U.S. only 6 days away, the Founding Father that is the talk of New York is Alexander Hamilton. And he wasn't a President!

But Hamilton is a hot ticket for the Off-Broadway production named after him. Based on the biography by Ron Chernow, the production has one very unusual the twist. It's hip-hop! And if you think some of the most recognizable names on Broadway would thumb their noses at "Hamilton", think again. Andrew Lloyd Weber, who himself transformed Broadway's look and sound, tweeted: "Just seen #Hamilton, it raises & changes the bar for musical. Brilliant lyrics, staging, cast. Creator/les @Lin_Manuel is special. ALW."

Shackman Associates New Yok provides unique Broadway experiences to corporate meeting, association convention, and destination incentive attendees that have included backstage tours and interaction with key performers.
