Those who missed the PBS airing of Hamilton's America on Oct. 21 can watch it for a limited time for free online.
Hamilton's America, the documentary centering on Lin-Manuel Miranda and his Broadway smash hit Hamilton, is now available to watch on the internet. PBS is set to have the following video of the entire documentary free to watch until Nov. 18:
"'Hamilton's America' shows just how timeless the hot-button issues of today's America are: immigration, states' rights, debt, income inequality and race relations," says PBS, of the documentary. "These were the same fights that defined Hamilton's time, and they are the driving force of Miranda's historic work. The film endeavors to brush the dust off American history, much as the musical does, and provide a unique new way for us to view our national heritage and current political landscape."
The documentary also includes Miranda's 2009 performance at the White House, where he rapped an early version of the musical's first song, "Alexander Hamilton". There is an exploration of Hamilton himself, with special interviews with President Barack Obama, President George W. Bush, Elizabeth Warren, Nas, Questlove, Stephen Sondheim and many more.
Hamilton won 11 Tonys this year, including Best Musical, Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical for Leslie Odom, Jr. as Aaron Burr, Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Musical for Daveed Diggs as Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson, Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Musical for Renee Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler Church and a slew of technical awards.
