|PERFORMANCE ALERT: Tonight on PBS' Great Performances, a documentary on the Broadway smash "Hamilton" will air.|
Hamilton is the rage of Broadway. But not everyone will have a chance to catch a live performance in New York. But, thanks to PBS, there’s a second best opportunity to learn more about this remarkable stage production.
On, October 21, PBS’ Great Performances series will air a documentary of Hamilton by filmmaker Alex Horwitz.
PBS’ Linda Holmes writing in the National Public Radio blog wrote “show creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda said Horwitz was a roommate of his who started following his process while he was still deciding exactly what form Hamilton would eventually take. Miranda also pointed out that he's had a relationship with WNET's Great Performances going back to his previous show In The Heights, and that his first job was as a WNET intern,” said PBS writer Linda Holmes.” It's safe to say the station's long relationship with him has turned into a good investment.
It’s not a full performance of Hamilton, but for now we can just say thank you for this documentary.
