Publishers Weekly Review

Hamilton : The Revolution

Publishers Weekly

The hip-hop musical Hamilton: The Revolution has earned its own biography, which highlights the obstacles, influences, and powerful moments from its development to its Broadway success. McCarter narrates the introduction (which he wrote), and one can hear the excitement and enthusiasm he still has for both the musical and his work with Miranda. Actress Hargitay, longtime star of NBC's Law & Order: SVU, covers the lion's share of this performance, and she does an astounding job. She captures the energy and enthusiasm of the various people quoted throughout the book, while capturing the emphasis and tone to draw out some of the more emotional moments. Miranda chimes in for the last hour, reading-and at times singing-footnotes on the libretto, without the actual context of the script, which will be confusing for listeners who do not have the print book to follow along. A Grand Central hardcover. (May) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

With 16 Tony nominations and sold-out shows through 2016, Hamilton is the year's hottest ticket. Whether it's a fan who has gotten into the sacred room where it happens or one simply blasting the cast recording on repeat, all will be eager to pore over this brilliant behind-the-scenes tome. Composer and show star Miranda joins forces with critic and former Public Theater producer McCarter to deliver the details of this theatrical gem, from its humble beginnings to its extraordinary social impact. Beautifully constructed, the book looks as if it could have easily come from the real Alexander Hamilton's library; its rough-cut pages are filled with gorgeous photos and the play's full libretto. Readers will devour the backstage stories from the crew and original cast, which offer touching personal journeys and deeper insight into the play's beloved characters. Miranda's footnotes provide the biggest draw. A treasure trove of information, they highlight his writing process, musical influences (ranging from show tunes to pop to hip-hop), amusing anecdotes, and so much more. Verdict This is required reading for anyone interested in theater production, culture and diversity, or American history. Highly recommended.
