Don’t Throw Away Your Shot to See Hamilton in Pittsburgh


As a self-proclaimed theatre nerd since high school, I have never missed an opportunity to see a beloved musical when it comes to town. There isn’t much that can top singing along to a favorite show tune while watching an actor perform it live on stage. One thing that might rival that feeling, however, is getting a chance to see a critically acclaimed musical like Hamilton for the first time. 

I had heard so many great things about Hamilton over the years, and I can say it absolutely lives up to the hype now that I’ve seen the show. Conceived by the brilliant Lin-Manuel Miranda, the musical has transformed theater with its blend of hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway. Standout numbers that will be stuck in my head for weeks to come include “Wait For It” and “Satisfied.” And I won’t soon forget the comedic relief provided by interludes from King George III.

Hamilton is a theatrical landmark that has changed the way I think about theater – and history.

Based on Ron Chernow’s acclaimed biography, Hamilton follows the life of American founding father Alexander Hamilton, from his arrival in New York City to his death in a duel with Aaron Burr. With direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire. It has won Tony®, Grammy®, and Olivier Awards; the Pulitzer Prize for Drama; and an unprecedented special citation from the Kennedy Center Honors.
