Atlantic Records has announced the release of “HAMILTON (ORIGINAL BROADWAY CAST RECORDING),” the musical companion to the critically acclaimed Broadway show, “HAMILTON.” “HAMILTON (ORIGINAL BROADWAY CAST RECORDING)” is available for pre-order at all DSPs on August 7th, one day after the show’s official Broadway opening night at the Richard Rodgers Theatre (226 W. 46 St.). The album will be released at all retailers this Fall, with an official date to be announced in the
coming weeks.

“HAMILTON (ORIGINAL BROADWAY CAST RECORDING)” is executive produced by Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson and Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter, founding members of the Grammy Award winning hip-hop band, The Roots. “Ten minutes into ‘Hamilton,’ though, I was just so stunned. It was such a sucker punch,” raves Thompson, reflecting on seeing the show for the first time, while Trotter highlights that the show, “can be your introduction to hip-hop — on Broadway. And it’s a valid one. It’s a credible one.”

“HAMILTON” has book, music and lyrics by Tony and Grammy Award-winning composer Lin Manuel Miranda, who also plays the title role. The musical is directed by Thomas Kail, with choreography by Andy
Blankenbuehler and music direction and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire. “HAMILTON” is inspired by Ron Chernow’s biography “Alexander Hamilton.”

“HAMILTON” – which recently transferred to Broadway following a sold-out run at The Public Theater in NYC – is the acclaimed new musical about the scrappy young immigrant Alexander Hamilton, the $10
Founding Father who forever changed America with his revolutionary ideas and actions. During his life cut too short, he served as George Washington’s chief aide, was the first Treasury Secretary, a loving husband and father, despised by his fellow Founding Fathers and shot to death by Aaron Burr in their legendary duel.

The show was profiled in this past weekend’s issue of The New York Times’ T Magazine. “HAMILTON” has also been widely praised by outlets from all corners including The New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal,
Vogue and Forbes, to name a few. “HAMILTON” – which The New Yorker called “an achievement of historical and cultural reimagining” – has received several accolades including an outstanding 10 Lucille Lortel Awards.

Tickets to HAMILTON are available for purchase online at www.hamiltononbroadway.com, by phone at Ticketmaster 800-223-7565 or 212-398-8383 or at the box office.

For my money, the theatre is up there in the ten top reasons to be human. I leave my home and go sit in a dark room with complete strangers and watch actors do their stuff because I want to be inspired. I’m asking to be involved. I’m volunteering to be led down any old path they choose as long as they don’t let go of my hand. And if I see a show, and it is NOT so very good – I will try to divert you, because I don’t want you to come to the temple when the preaching isn’t up to snuff. I will bar the door, I will swing from rafters, I will yell FIRE just to set your feet on a path that does not lead to disappointment. Do something different with your evening I will say. Save your money for dinner with a friend you haven’t seen in months because you are too frigging busy. Go take a walk with your dog or your child or your significant other. Go to bed early, I will say. Don’t come to the theatre when it is less than it can be. I’m an usher snob, and that’s all there is to it.
