    Yesterday afternoon, “THE HAMILTON MIXTAPE” took New York City by storm with a special “’THE HAMILTON MIXTAPE’ LIVE PEFORMANCE” presented by Atlantic Records and You Tube. Live streamed by YouTube from the HAMILTON stage at the Richard Rodgers Theatre, the event featured surprise performances from artists from the highly anticipated album, including The Roots with Joel Ortiz (“My Shot”,) Regina Spektor (“Dear Theodosia”,) Andra Day (“Burn”,) and Grammy-nominated singer Ashanti with Ja Rule, as well as DJ sets from J. Period & !llmind and a special video message from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. Watch “’THE HAMILTON MIXTAPE’ LIVE PERFORMANCE” here.

    The winner of the 2016 GRAMMY® Award for “Best Musical Theatre Album,” “HAMILTON (ORIGINAL BROADWAY CAST RECORDING),” is available now in stores, DSPs, and streaming services. The 2x RIAA platinum certified album (only the third cast recording to go 2x platinum in the last 20 years, joining the cast recordings of “Wicked” and “Rent”) made a stunning arrival on the Billboard charts upon its initial digital release, coming in at #1 on the “Top Broadway Albums” chart, #3 on the “Top Rap Albums” chart and #9 on the “Top Current Albums” chart. This impressive debut stands as the biggest first week sales for a digital cast recording and the second biggest first week sales ever for any cast recording, behind only “RENT” in the Nielsen SoundScan era.

    The best-selling cast album of 2015, “HAMILTON (ORIGINAL BROADWAY CAST RECORDING)” continued to make chart history in the weeks and months following its arrival. The album eventually ascended to the #1 spot on Billboard’s “Top Rap Albums” – the first and only cast recording to ever reach the chart’s top position. Produced by Alex Lacamoire, Bill Sherman, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson & Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter, founding members of the GRAMMY®-winning hip-hop band, The Roots, “HAMILTON (ORIGINAL BROADWAY CAST RECORDING)” marks the first album to be mixed at the legendary Atlantic Records Studio in New York City.

     

    ABOUT “HAMILTON”:

    With book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, music direction/orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, HAMILTON is based on Ron Chernow’s biography of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton.  The musical won eleven 2016 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Score, Book of a Musical, Direction of a Musical, Choreography and Orchestrations.  Mr. Miranda received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for HAMILTON. HAMILTON is the story of America’s Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington’s right-hand man during the Revolutionary War, and was the new nation’s first Treasury Secretary.  Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway, HAMILTON is the story of America then, told by America now.

    HAMILTON is among the most honored works of our time, including a record-setting 16 nominations at the 70th Annual Tony Awards, winning 11, among them “Best Musical.” This year also saw the original cast making indelible performances at both the 70th Annual Tony Awards and the 58th Annual GRAMMY® Awards, where it was named “Best Musical Theatre Album.” In addition, HAMILTON’S AMERICA, a new documentary film exploring both the Broadway musical and the man who inspired it, recently premiered on PBS’ Great Performances as part of the 2016 PBS Arts Fall Festival, earning a remarkable viewership of 3.6 million. Other awards include the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, 10 Lucille Lortel Awards, eight Drama Desk Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, the 2015 New York Drama Critics Circle Award for “Best Musical,” and the prestigious 2015 Obie Award for “Best New American Theatre Work.” In addition, HAMILTON is also now playing at Chicago’s PrivateBank Theatre, with additional openings in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and London scheduled for next year.
