“Alexander Hamilton: Man, Myth, Musical & Mensch”

Alexander Hamilton’s life reads like a Shakespearean play – it is both triumphal and tragic. Few people had more of an impact on the development and course of America than Hamilton. Learn about his difficult upbringing in the West Indies and his Jewish roots, his meteoric rise to become George Washington’s chief aide during the Revolution and later Secretary of Treasury, the intimate details of his scandalous downfall and duel, and the phenomenon that is the hit Broadway musical.
