As if Hamilton isn’t already making history with a hip-hop based biography about the first U.S. Secretary of Treasury, while featuring a cast largely made up of people of color. The Lin-Manuel Miranda produced megahit musical — sold out until fall 2016 — has nabbed a record-breaking 16 Tony Award nominations, making the show the biggest draw in Broadway history. The 15-nominations record was held by The Producers and Billy Elliot.
Earlier this year, Miranda won a 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Hamilton, which also garnered a Grammy Award and coveted spot on the Billboard 200 charts. Expect for Atlantic Records to release a Hamilton mixtape this fall, featuring Chance the Rapper, SIA, Usher and more.
