VIDEO: Rodgers & Hammerstein President Explains Why HAMILTON is a Hit on Broadway


On this week's "Bloomberg Markets", host Betty Liu spoke to Rodgers & Hammerstein President Ted Chapin about how the hip-hop take of Hamilton is quickly becoming Broadway's hottest show. "The buzz is absolutely warranted", he shared, adding "It's really good!" Watch the interview below!

Lin-Manuel Miranda's new musical Hamilton began previews at the Richard Rodgers Theatre earlier this week on July 13th, prior to its official opening night of August 6th. Hamilton is inspired by the book Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow and features book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler and direction by Thomas Kail, who previously collaborated on IN THE HEIGHTS.

From the creative team behind the Tony Award-winning In The Heights comes a wildly inventive new musical about the scrappy young immigrant who forever changed America: Alexander Hamilton. Tony and Grammy Award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda wields his pen and takes the stage as the unlikely founding father determined to make his mark on a new nation as hungry and ambitious as he is. From bastard orphan to Washington's right hand man, rebel to war hero, loving husband caught in the country's first sex scandal to Treasury head who made an untrusting world believe in the American economy,Hamilton is an exploration of a political mastermind. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, ElizaHamilton, and lifelong Hamilton friend and foe, Aaron Burr, all attend this revolutionary tale of America's fiery past told through the sounds of the ever-changing nation we've become. Tony Award nominee Thomas Kail directs this new musical about taking your shot, speaking your mind, and turning the world upside down.
