The Story of Hamilton

The musical is based on the biography of Alexander Hamilton, one of the founding fathers of the United States he served as America’s first treasury secretary. His likeness can still be seen on the $10 bill. Hamilton entered the United States as an ambitious immigrant from the Caribbean. With the help of vice-president Burr, Hamilton transforms himself into a successful statesman. He can count on the support of George Washington,however, America’s other founding fathers, Jefferson and Madison, are his major opponents. The relationship between Hamilton and Burr eventually deteriorates and ends in confrontation, when Burr mortally wounds Hamilton. In addition to the main theme, the musical also portrays the story of Hamilton’s marriage to the loyal Eliza, that was threatened by an affair and Hamilton’s platonic relationship with Eliza’s sister.
