Hamilton • How the Musical Remixes American History

Sat., Feb. 16 • 7–8:30 p.m.
Sun., Feb. 17 • 2–3:30 p.m.
Ohio History Center, Columbus

In this talk, historian Richard Bell explores the musical phenomenon of Hamilton to reveal what its success tells us about the marriage of history and show-business. Aimed at people who are familiar with the musical or have seen the show, we’ll examine some of the choices Hamilton’s creators made to simplify, dramatize, and humanize the complicated events and stories that frame the birth of the United States of America. We’ll also discuss Hamilton’s cultural impact and what its success reveals about the stories we tell each other of who we are and the nation we made.

Program recommended for ages 14 and up due to strong themes and language. Cash bar will be available, ID required.
