The paths traced in Broadway's smash hit, "Hamilton," are endless. Lin-Manuel Miranda's brainchild takes in the life and history of Alexander Hamilton but with its own added ingredients. With the music as one of those ingredients, so is Alex Lacamoire, the man who orchestrated the score and co-arranged the songs.
'Hamilton', the hit musical from mastermind Lin Manuel Miranda, seems to have taken over the world, and the show is showing no sign of slowing down. Now, after segments about the show on '60 Minutes' and 'The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon', ticket prices are rising again.
One of the most anticipated Broadway cast albums of the year, Hamilton, will be released in September. It features the original cast, including Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jonathan Groff. The album was produced by The Roots' Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson and Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter.
If playing the world's smallest violin is metaphor for sob stories then what about the piccolo? For Roxanne Chalifoux and the windy instrument, it represents, actually, physical tears. Now viral, she was recently invited to perform on Jimmy Fallon with none other than The Roots.
