Yet Another Encore Presentation of "10 Things To Know Before You See 'Hamilton' "
My September talk — "10 Things to Know Before You See Hamilton" at The Mark Twain House & Museum was sold-out. Then we booked another on Dec. 4 — and that one sold out.
I’m coming back for an SECOND encore presentation on MONDAY, Dec. 10. at the Mark Twain House in Hartford — the day before the national tour of the show will have just begun its three-week run at The Bushnell.
From an earlier press release:
"Hamilton" has changed how we view musicals as well as our own American history, says Frank Rizzo, who also writes for The Hartford Courant, The New York Times, Hartford and Connecticut magazines, and American Theatre magazine. Lin-Manuel Miranda's innovative show is rich in music, character, story, and history. Having a fuller understanding of the musical can make the experience of seeing or even listening to 'Hamilton 'all the more enjoyable.
Rizzo has previously presented a three-class course about the musical for University of Hartfords Presidents' College and has lectured about the show in venues in Connecticut and New York City.
In his audio-visual presentation, Rizzo describes the back story of the shows creation, discusses how the artistic team developed the work over time, reveals how accurate the musical is to history, and talks about Hamilton's impact on education, politics, and culture. By breaking down a song or two, he'll also show why the musical is as revolutionary as its subject matter.
Tickets are $20.
