HAMILTON THE REVOLUTION: Slipcased

LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA    Book Number: 86967    Product format: Unknown

Truly a backstage pass to the groundbreaking hit musical 'Hamilton', winner of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Lin-Manuel Miranda's groundbreaking musical Hamilton is as revolutionary as its subject. The poor kid from the Caribbean who fought the British, defended the Constitution, and helped to found the United States. Fusing hip-hop, pop, R&B and the best traditions of theatre, this special Barnes & Noble slipcased deluxe edition includes the entire text, a 24" x 30" poster featuring lyrics from My Shot, frameable reproductions of four collectable artefacts including three stunning portraits and a letter from Alexander Hamilton to his wife Eliza. A bonus CD features Lin-Manuel performing libretto annotations. Read along with this audio book excerpt as you take in the gorgeously illustrated pages. In addition Miranda has written more than 200 funny and revealing footnotes for his libretto, the full text of which is published here. With exclusive looks at notebooks and emails, interviews with Questlove, Stephen Sondheim, leading political commentators and more than 40 people involved with the production. The story has dramatic highs and lows taking in revolution, a sex scandal, blackmail and death in a duel at the hands of the US Vice President. Hamilton was an orphan, born out of wedlock to a half British, half-French mother who died when he was about 11, and a Scottish father who had long since abandoned them. It is the life of American Founding Father Alexander Hamilton told in music, lyrics and book of the box office success. 286pp, CD, 8¾" x 10½" and a heavyweight at 1.25kg. Ranked 1955 on the Amazon bestsellers lists! We have the very final remaining copies which we have imported from the USA. Rare and collectable, hurry your order.
