How Broadway's Hamilton is Radically Relevant

Submitted by mkrivonen on Wed, 06/06/2018 - 17:41

A hip-hop musical about America’s founding fathers with a virtually all minority cast. A reimagining of La bohème as a rock musical uncovering the AIDS crisis in New York City. A coming-of-age musical about the anxieties of entering adulthood told through cartoons. These are just a few of the radically relevant and compelling concepts that Tony Award-winning producer Jeffrey Seller has turned into Broadway gold. In this episode, David Rubenstein, co-founder of the Carlyle Group, interviews Seller (Hamilton, Rent, Avenue Q) about his childhood, democratizing theater, diversifying history, and putting on a really good show.
