America has gone Hamilton crazy. Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tony-winning musical has spawned sold-out performances, a triple platinum cast album, and a score so catchy that it is being used to teach U.S. history in classrooms across the country.

In this talk, Professor of History Renee Romano, coeditor of the collection Historians on Hamilton: How a Blockbuster Musical is Restaging America’s Past, will explore why this musical about founding father Alexander Hamilton has been so successful and will ask whether its popularity is a good thing for those interested in American history and in historical education. What does the show get right, what does it get wrong, and why does it matter?
