Hamilton Chicago Company members Ari Afsar (Eliza Hamilton) and Joseph Morales (Alexander Hamilton alternate) join us for a discussion about Hamilton: An American Musical.
Ari Afsar is a singer/songwriter from San Diego, CA, and was a semi-finalist on American Idol Season 8. Joseph Morales is an actor and singer, and performed in the Broadway First National Tour of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In The Heights.
HAMILTON is the story of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and was the new nation’s first Treasury Secretary. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B, and Broadway, HAMILTON is the story of America then, told by America now.
With book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler and musical direction and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, HAMILTON is based on Ron Chernow’s biography of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton.
The talk was hosted by Kellie Fitzgerald.
