The Broadway hit ‘Hamilton’ is about to hit the road and the smash hit is holding open auditions for singers, rappers, and dancers. Auditions will be held in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.
The musical ‘Hamilton’ has made several waves throughout the art community as not simply your run of the mill Broadway musical. The play is not necessarily your typical musical in that it incorporates hip-hop into to the storytelling. This gives this historically based tale a very unique perspective. That and the majority of the American populace is unfamiliar with the live of Alexander Hamilton. The first act of the play focuses on Hamilton’s early life and his exploits leading up to and through the American Revolution. After the revolution Alexander is then appointed to be the first Secretary of Treasury by then President George Washington. The second act revolves around Hamilton’s life in politics and debates ensue in hip-hop/rap format that really makes what would be boring dialogue very entertaining. Finally, the show makes its natural conclusion with the ill fated duel between Hamilton and the Vice-President Aaron Burr.
The musical ‘Hamilton’ is created by, and originally starred, Lin-Manuel Miranda after he was inspired by a biography he picked up on vacation. The musical would begin off-Broadway about one year ago gathered so much attention that by that summer it made its way to the Richard Rodgers Theatre. The play has raked in many, many kudos including a Grammy for Best Musical Theatre Album and Getting as high as 12 on the Billboard Top 200 albums.
