Listen to the full, annotated soundtrack ahead of time and join some Hamilton nerds--Kati Corlew, Sarah Hentges, Jeff Sychterz, and Ben Treat--as they discuss the American truths that are presented through Hamilton and what this musical tells us about history, about how we tell stories, and about who we are as Americans.
