With its original cast, the Broadway production of Hamilton, featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, and R&B to tell the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton (played by show creator Lin-Manuel Miranda), was a full-blown cultural phenomenon with a long list of accolades and countless fans.
