Lin-Manuel Miranda to Talk Hamilton on The Hamilcast
The musical's unofficial podcast welcomes Hamilton's Tony-winning creator.
Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda will tell his story over the course of four new episodes of the unofficial Hamilton podcast, The Hamilcast.
The episodes will be released every Monday in the month of October. In them, "Miranda freestyles, sings Hamilton songs, talks Moana and In the Heights, references Harry Potter and The West Wing (a lot), gets emotional, has a midday custom cocktail inspired by Washington Heights, and much much more."
With book, music, and lyrics by Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, and music direction and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, Hamilton is based on Ron Chernow's biography of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. The musical tells the story of Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington's right-hand man during the Revolutionary War, and was the new nation's first treasury secretary. The musical won 11 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Score, Book of a Musical, Direction of a Musical, Choreography, and Orchestrations.
