Prior to its off-Broadway opening at the Public Theater on January 20, 2015, the theatrical sensation Hamilton had already gained an online following in 2009 through a viral YouTube video of its opening number. Since then, Hamilton has continued to permeate pop culture and inspire a new generation of theatre enthusiasts.
Our host David-Michel Davies is joined by one of the brilliant minds behind the cultural phenomenon: Director of Hamilton Thomas Kail, to discuss the show’s origins, how online access to its material influenced the creative process, the team’s crusade against ticket bots—and more.
“ The support of the Internet community has certainly helped the show thrive.”
