If you can’t audition live but are interested in the show, follow instructions at HamiltonBroadway.com/auditions The Broadway musical was critically acclaimed and centers around the life of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, which opened on August 6th at the Richard Rodgers Theater. Marilyn Stasio, in her review of the Off-Broadway production for Variety, wrote: “The music is exhilarating, but the lyrics are the big surprise. The sense as well as the sound of the sung dialogue has been purposely suited to each character. George Washington, a stately figure in Jackson’s dignified performance, sings in polished prose… But in the end, Miranda’s impassioned narrative of one man’s story becomes the collective narrative of a nation, a nation built by immigrants who occasionally need to be reminded where they came from.”
