The Broadway Musical

The history-inspired musical follows Alexander Hamilton on his journey to the top as an early founding father. It begins before the Revolutionary War and tells the story of his life until he died in 1804 in a duel with Aaron Burr. Along the way, we meet beloved historical figures like Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson, as well as John Laurens and George Washington. The musical highlights Hamilton’s personal and professional successes and failures in an emotionally stirring way through dancing, songs, and powerful performances from the entire cast.

About Steven Wilk

Steven has a complicated relationship with Disney. As a child, he visited Walt Disney World every few years with his family. But he never understood why kids his age (and older) were so scared of Snow White or Alien Encounter. He is a former participant of the Disney College Program (left early…long story), and he also previously worked in Children’s publishing, where he adapted multiple Disney movies and TV shows. He has many controversial opinions about Disney…like having a positive view of Michael Eisner, believing Return of the Jedi is superior to The Empire Strikes Back, and that Toy Story Land and Galaxy’s Edge should have never been built (at least not at Hollywood Studios). Every year for the past two decades, Steven has visited either Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Aulani or went on a Disney Cruise. He’s happy to share any and all knowledge of the Disney destinations (and he likes using parenthesis a lot…as well as ellipses…)
