Alexander Hamilton has always been known as a central player in America’s early history, but the smash Broadway musical Hamilton has focused new attention on the life and career of this fascinating individual. This multimedia class will draw on both Hamilton’s biography and his depiction on stage to examine his accomplishments, discuss his relationship with Aaron Burr, and reflect on the accuracy of the musical. Participants may wish to read Ron Chernow’s biography of Hamilton and listen to the show’s soundtrack before attending.
Dan Sherman has a love of both American history and musical theatre and has taught more than 20 classes on these topics for OLLI at George Mason University. He has also offered classes on opera and architecture. He earned his doctorate in economics at Cornell University and is a managing director at the American Institute for Research (AIR) in Washington, D.C.
