Profs & Pints: Hamilton's History Remix
Profs and Pints presents: Hamiltons History Remix, with Richard Bell, associate professor of history at the University of Maryland.

Lin-Manuel Mirandas Tony-winning musical was completely sold out at the Kennedy Center this past summer, and many of us have the triple-platinum cast album playing on repeat. Its crafty lyrics, hip-hop tunes, and big, bold story have even rejuvenated interest in the real lives and true histories that Hamilton: the Musical puts center stage.

Join Richard Bell, who previously wowed Profs and Pints audiences with his talks on Benjamin Franklin and on African Americans in the American Revolution, for a great examination of the history underlying the musical. In a talk aimed at people whove seen the show or know the soundtrack, hell explore the Hamilton phenomenon to reveal what its success tells us about the marriage of history and show business.

Well learn what this amazing musical got right and got wrong about Alexander Hamilton, the American Revolution, and the birth of the United States, and why that matters. Well examine some of the choices Hamiltons creators made to simplify, dramatize, and humanize the complicated events and stories on which the show is based.

We will also talk about Hamiltons cultural impact: what does its runaway success reveal about the stories we tell each other about who we are and about the nation we made? (Advance tickets: $12. Doors: 15, save $2 with student ID.)
