9780472037247 Paperback £20.95 / €23.00

Examines recent and contemporary work by such groups as Rimini Protokoll, Societas

HISTORIANS ON HAMILTON

How a Blockbuster Musical Is Restaging America’s Past
Edited by Renee C. Romano & Claire Bond Potter

Mar 2018 288pp, 25 colour and 6 b&w illustrations
9780813590295 Paperback £20.50 / €24.00
9780813590301 Hardback £61.95 / €70.00

Everyone has gone Hamilton crazy. Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tony-winning musical has
spawned sold-out performances, a triple platinum cast album, and a score so catchy that it
is being used to teach US history in classrooms across the country. But just how historically
accurate is Hamilton? And how is the show itself making history? This work brings together
a collection of top scholars to explain the Hamilton phenomenon and explore what it might
mean for our understanding of America’s history.

The musicals of Stephen Sondheim and his collaborators
have challenged the conventions of American musical
theatre. This text places Stephen Sondheim’s work in
two contexts: the exhaustion of the musical play and the
postmodernism that, by the 1960s, deeply influenced all the
American arts.
