Three years in the making, this Great Performances special, Hamilton’s America, gives an unprecedented look at the creation of the Broadway phenomenon Hamilton.

The documentary brings history to life through the lens of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s pop culture musical, the winner of 11 Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize. Hamilton’s America delves into the creation of the show, revealing Miranda’s process of absorbing and then adapting Hamilton’s epic story into groundbreaking musical theater.

Most remembered for its dramatic conclusion, in which Hamilton is killed in a duel, the story of this Founding Father follows the poor immigrant who built himself up from nothing to become one of the nation’s most vital architects.
