Apologies for the long posting hiatus! I’m just coming off a very intense period of time at work. Back in action now and should be posting regularly!
The Powerhouse Theater at Vassar College announced that Lin-Manuel Miranda will be presenting his show, The Hamilton Mixtape this summer. Miranda is best known for composing and starring in the Tony Award-winning show “In the Heights.”
Broadway World states: The Hamilton Mixtape is a hip-hop song cycle about the life and death of Alexander Hamilton and showcases a fusion of Miranda’s signature Latin, hip-hop and classic Broadway styles.
The world got its first taste of the Hamilton Mixtape in May 2009, when Miranda performed at the White House Poetry Jam. In January 2012, he performed a one-night only preview of the Hamilton Mixtape at Lincoln Center.
