Hamilton: The Revolution does more than tell the surprising story of how a Broadway musical became a national phenomenon: It demonstrates that America has always been renewed by the brash upstarts and brilliant outsiders, the men and women who don't throw away their shot. Lin-Manuel Miranda's groundbreaking musical Hamilton is as revolutionary as its subject—the poor kid from the Caribbean who fought the British, defended the Constitution and helped to found the United States. Fusing hip-hop, pop, R&B, and the best traditions of theater, this once-in-a-generation show broadens the sound of Broadway, reveals the storytelling power of rap, and claims our country's origins for a diverse new generation.
The imagery created for a Broadway show provides audiences with a tangible, visual and emotional connection to the theatrical experience. SpotCo, one of the nation’s leading theatrical design and advertising companies, has been by far the most successful company in forging that connection. A visual and oral history of the past 20 years of theater, On Broadway pulls back the curtain to reveal the creative process involved in bringing a Broadway show to the stage and into the public consciousness through the words of Broadway’s most famous personalities and the art of SpotCo.
