West Beach , Fla. – Thursday, April 10 at 8 p.m. is opening night for a story of revolutionary passion, unstoppable ambition and the dawn of a new nation – not to mention a hip-hop sungand-rapped, blockbuster biographical musical about an American founder.

“Hamilton: An American Musical,” the acclaimed Broadway phenomenon nominated for a record-breaking 16 Tony Awards and winner of 11, including Best Musical, as well as the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, comes to the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, 701 Okeechobee Blvd. in West Palm Beach, April 10 – 21 as part of this year’s Kravis On Broadway series.

“Hamilton,” is the epic saga that follows the rise of American Founding Father Alexander Hamilton as he fights for honor, love, and a legacy that would shape the course of a nation.

Based on Ron Chernow’s acclaimed biography and set to a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B, pop, soul, and traditional-style show tunes, “Hamilton” features book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

In casting non-white actors as the Founding Fathers of the United States and other historical figures, Miranda has described “Hamilton” as about “America then, as told by America now.”

Tickets in the Alexander W. Dreyfoos Concert Hall, for the Broadway phenomenon that has had a profound impact on culture, politics, and education, receiving an unprecedented special citation from the Kennedy Center Honors, start at $49.
