    This is an excellent collection of essays for fans of Hamilton who want a critical look at their favorite show The essays by no means criticize the show too harshly many authors freely admit that they too are fans but they investigate the ways in which this musical may not be uite as revolutionary as it claims to be and it delineates ways that future shows might take the Hamilton concept even further A lot of historical background was give

    For the record I am a mad 'Hamilton' fan who has for the last almost three years been besotted with Lin Manuel Miranda's magnum opus so this review is born out of a desire to delve further into the cultural phenomenon of the Broadway musical with a sidebar nod to my love of history Thankfully even with a position of bias predicating a positive outlook on this book in the first place as well as having come to it via an

    This book comprises 15 essays by academic historians reflecting on Hamilton the musicalThe overall point of the essays is not to bash the musical but to provide additional historical context which the majority of the musical's audience probably don't haveOne idea that ties together a lot of the criticism is the idea of Founders Chic the tendency of the most best selling biographies of founding fathers to port

America has gone Hamilton crazy Lin Manuel Miranda’s Tony winning musical has spawned sold out performances a triple platinum cast album and a score so catchy that it is being used to teach US history in classrooms across the country But just how historically accurate is Hamilton And how is the show itself making history Historians on Hamilton brings together a collection of top scholars to explain the Hamilton phenomenon and explore what it. As a fan of the Broadway show Hamilton I ve actually been looking forward to seeing some legitimate criticism of the show from a historical perspective It s always interesting to see the opposite side to uestion the media you love One of the best articles I had read on the subject is featured in this book the essay on the subject of the lack of POC stories in this musical that is still telling white stories regardless of the actors There are at least three enslaved men I can name that could have featured into this story easily but do not appear in the musical Why Well that s something these essays tackle We can love this show but taking it as historically factual is a problem If anything these essays talk about how the problem of Founder Chic makes it hard to criticize these men when they have become so popular because of a very very catchy soundtrack Is the musical insulating the actual people Is it really encouraging viewers to think about the real Hamilton Is it doing a deliberate disservice when it fails to mention that the men weren t abolitionists and all owned slaves while their Broadway counterparts say that they were opposed to the practice The first few essays discuss Hamilton from a historical perspective but then the book veers into territory about how Hamilton relates to Broadway and theatre and how we teach history which feels off topic to me as a reader although the essays are interesting Hopefully Hamilton the musical will led kids to A People s History of the United States as one essayist notes instead of taking Miranda s lyrics as gospel We can love something but if we aren t also critical of it especially in this context we re still lying to ourselves This is a good book of essays It could be much better though I await a better version in the future when the fervor over the musical dies down and criticism becomes less of a blasphemy Dark Prophet The Chronicles of Koa out performances a triple platinum cast album and a score so catchy that it is being used to teach US history in classrooms across the country But just how historically accurate is Hamilton And how is the show itself making history Historians Ugly Fish on Hamilton brings together a collection The Math of Life and Death 7 Mathematical Principles That Shape Our Lives of top scholars to explain the Hamilton phenomenon and explore what it.

Might mean for our understanding of America’s history The contributors examine what the musical got right what it got wrong and why it matters Does Hamilton’s hip hop take on the Founding Fathers misrepresent our nation’s past or does it offer a bold positive vision for our nation’s future Can a musical so unabashedly contemporary and deliberately anachronistic still communicate historical truths about American culture and politics And. There are a lot of things to admire about this collection voices from theatre historians contemporary historians and historians of 18th c America the absence of a critical orthodoxy that allows differing opinions to rise from various contributors the persistent presence of race as an analytic without eliminating other analyses gender capital celebrity the logical framing of the essays themselves After a gracious preview from the editors I used the collection in my American Drama course assigning each essay to a student plus Phillip Goldfarb Styrt s insightful analysis in the Spring 18 issue of Modern Drama to present to the class a sort of symposium by proxy The fact that the essays were accessible to advanced undergrads without dumbing down the content is a particular editorial feat in curating outstanding authors the theatre historians represented are top of the field and guiding drafts toward a consistent tone The fact that this discussion continued for a week after the assignment is testament to the collection s effectiveness That fact that as a scholar of biographical performance I wish I had written for it might be testament that it s a scholarly conversation worth joiningAre there overlaps in argument Sure Are there still gaps Of course but the critical discussion on this show is likely to continue for a long time If you re interested in that discussion then this book will be indispensable
