New Hamilton Play: At Liberty Hall

This fall, Premiere Stages at Kean University will be producing a new play about Alexander Hamilton.

The flyer for the production describes the show as follows:

At Liberty Hall follows two high school students who’ve just moved to New Jersey: Cristian Rosaria, a funny but unfocused teenager from Queens, by way of the Dominican Republic; and Alexander Hamilton, 16, the subject of Cristian’s 10th grade history project.  This time-bending story finds common threads of humor, honor, and awkwardness as told through the experiences of a someday-Founding Father and a kid looking for a way out of the projects.

The show will run from October 16-19 and is part of the exciting Four Centuries in a Weekend events in Union County, New Jersey.  Tickets are available here for $15.

Liberty Hall Museum, which is partnering with Kean University to produce this play as part of the Liberty Live project, recently hosted an excellent CelebrateHAMILTON 2014 event, which I attended.  Liberty Hall was the home of William Livingston, the first governor of New Jersey.  Hamilton was well-acquainted with the Livingston family.  Livingston’s son, Henry Brockholst Livingston, was Hamilton’s classmate at King’s College, and would later be one of his close contemporaries at the New York bar.  Livingston’s eldest daughter, Susan, was married to John Jay in 1774.
