Hamilton’s success comes as no surprise. The hip-hop centered musical about Founding Father Alexander Hamilton will receive the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama! Playwright, rapper and actor Lin-Manuel Miranda said:
“It is a tremendous honor to even be considered for this very prestigious award. To win today for Hamilton is beyond my wildest dreams.”
Although Hamilton didn’t run that long, it has received a Grammy Award for “Best Musical Theater Album” and several sold out nights until the end.
Congrats to Miranda and the entire cast and crew!
