Video: HAMILTON Exhibition Designer David Korins Shares A Peek At The Creation of the St. Croix Gallery
Tony-nominated HAMILTON set and exhibition designer David Korins has shared a peek into the process of taking his designs for Hamilton: The Exhibition from page to stage. See an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the St. Croix gallery below!
Hamilton: The Exhibition made its world premiere in Chicago on April 27, 2019. Hamilton: The Exhibition takes visitors deeper into the life and times of Alexander Hamilton, while at the same time chronicling THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION and the creation of the United States of America. From the post in St. Croix where teenager Alexander became an indispensable trader, to the hilltop in Weehawken, NJ where Burr fatally shot Hamilton in their infamous duel, Hamilton: The Exhibition seeks to elucidate the powerful experience of building our country and shaping our Democracy.
The exhibition features an audio tour narrated by the musical's author, Lin-Manuel Miranda, along with Phillipa Soo and Christopher Jackson, who played Eliza Schuyler Hamilton and George Washington in the original Broadway production of Hamilton. Joanne B. Freeman, historical advisor and Professor of History and American Studies at Yale University, also narrates. The Spanish language translations are narrated by Olga Merediz, who originated the role of Abuela Claudia in the Broadway production of In The Heights.
