Hamilton Trivia Facts

The Initial Hamilton

 Although one might think that this Hamilton musical is one of a kind, it was really not the first one about this historical character. Back in 1912, there was another musical also named Hamilton that was quite popular at the time as well. As you see, this particular historical figure seems to attract the attention of the creators and the public alike. However, we can’t neglect the genius mind of Lin-Manuel. His creation’s success is mainly because of his creative writing, composing, and brilliant performance. Although, it would be cool to watch both and compare the story and style.

You’ll Be Back

 This is one of my most-liked songs in the whole musical. ANd now I know why it is so touching! The author created it while on honeymoon! I guess the presence of a loving person, the life partner, added more colors to the song and made it so memorable. What do you think about this song? And which is your favorite song in this musical? 

Hamilton Set

 The set of the musical is really symbolic. (What’s not in great works of art?) According to the numerous interviews with creators, it is meant to symbolize America. This is a colonial building of those times that expands more and more just like the country does at that stage. In this slightly changing setting, we can see the numerous symbols of revolution, a hurricane, change in society, and so on! So, I hope you find these three facts enjoyable.
