This is a meet-up announcement for history enthusiasts.

Join fellow Hamilton super-fans for a viewing of the all new documentary Hamilton's America. The film brings history to vivid life through the lens of Lin-Manuel Miranda;s pop-culture Broadway phenomenon Hamilton as this winner of eleven Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize explodes onto Thirteen's Great Performances.

Bring your own popcorn! Complimentary apple cider will be provided.

The story of Alexander Hamilton is most remembered for its dramatic conclusion, which saw Hamilton killed in a duel by Vice President Aaron Burr. But the full story of this political genius, a poor immigrant who built himself up from nothing to become one of the most vital architects of the new nation, has largely been forgotten by history . . . until now. Today, Hamilton's fan club is vocal and growing, thanks in no small measure to the Tony, Grammy, and Emmy-winning composer and actor Lin-Manuel Miranda's revolutionary musical. With its young cast claiming America's history as its own, Broadway's Hamilton is redefining how audiences learn about history.
