Even five years after it debuted on Broadway, Mirandas musical about one of Americas founding fathers remains entertaining, audacious and fiercely original. The score brilliantly blends hip-hop, R&B and pop, and the epic story touches on history and political manoeuvring all without ever being dry. The costumes blend 18th-century elegance with contemporary flair, and the choreography brings every scene to heart-pounding life. But more importantly, the cast (mostly good, with some exceptions) consists almost entirely of Black, Latinx and other POC actors, which says a lot about what it means to be an American and who gets to tell what stories, whether back in 1776 or today.
