This musical was an overnight hit, but if you haven't heard of it yet you should give it a listen! Following the founding father Alexander Hamilton, we see his rise and fall which shaped the foundation of America as we know it today. With clever turns-of-phrase, political commentary, and 11 Tony award nominations, this musical can't be beat.
