Hamilton: How the Musical Remixes American History

In this talk, University of Maryland historian Dr. Richard Bell will explore the success of the Tony Award-winning musical, “Hamilton,” and what it tells us about the marriage of history and show business. Learn what this amazing musical gets right and gets wrong about Alexander Hamilton, the American Revolution, the birth of the United Sates and why all that matters. Bell will examine choices “Hamilton’s” creators made to simplify, dramatize and humanize the complicated events and stories on which the show is based.

 

Doors open 6 pm, lecture is 6:30 pm. Cost: $15 for MdHS members, $20 nonmembers, including refreshments. Pre-registration is recommended but not required.

 

Dr. Bell (Ph.D. Harvard) is an Associate Professor of History at the University of Maryland and serves on the Board of Trustees at the Maryland Historical Society.
