The souls of the musical and Lin Manuel Miranda comes through and it is a breathtakingly beautiful edition. Since I finally got tickets to see the show I decided it was time to listen to this. I listened to half of it before seeing the show and half after. The book gave an excellent history of the musical--from its beginnings maybe not on the vacation as you've been told to opening day and beyond.
One of the most remarkable things about musical theatre is how profoundly it changes lives. Hamilton is astonishing, and the story behind it all is just as incredible to experience. I had the distinct pleasure of both reading and listening to the Revolution, and it's definitely a treat to listen to Lin-Manuel Miranda read his footnotes to the libretto. The story of the blockbuster musical. It's more than a bit fawning, but the target audience is definitely people who adore Hamilton so that's understandable.
A note on the audio: The second part of this book is Miranda's notes on the libretto, read by Miranda himself. Unfortunately, that's all he reads: just the notes. So unless you have the print book in front of you, you don't know what his notes refer to. The audio copy I had came with a PDF, but that's not very helpful when you're listening on the drive to work. An amazing look behind the scenes at one f the best new Broadway shows! I have become slowly obsessed with the musical Hamilton ever since i first picked up the cast recording.
This might be as close as I ever get to seeing the original cast and its an amazing up-close look at it. Do you like the artist?
