Around NYC Today (3/26) Butterboy, Historians on Hamilton, Side Ponytail

THINGS TO DO

Historians on Hamilton, The New School – Greenwich Village, 7pm – 9pm

In February 2015, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton: An American Musical debuted to critical acclaim and became an instant hit. But just how historically accurate is it? Does Miranda’s hip-hop take on the Founding Fathers offer a bold and positive vision for our nation’s future, or does it misrepresent the past? Can a musical so unabashedly contemporary still communicate historical truths about American culture and politics? Join a discussion with editors Claire Bond Potter and Renee C. Romano, contributors Brian Eugenio Herrera, Jim Cullen, Elizabeth Wollman, Lyra Monteiro, Jim Cullen and William Hogeland. Moderated by Parsons Professor of Art History and Lafayette biographer Laura Auricchio. Free. RSVP.
