Watch: On Broadway, Who Tells ‘Their’ Stories?

Saturday July 13 2024 • 3:34am - 3:34am ET

Hamilton's Javier Muñoz

From the Gershwins’ madcap Of Thee I Sing to Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hip-hop masterpiece Hamilton, Broadway composers have long been drawn to stories about towering political figures, the women they will never satisfy, and the complicated legacies they leave behind.

In the final installment of our Encores! Unscripted conversation series, we dig into the process of bringing American icons to life with Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson composer Michael Friedman, Hamilton stars Javier Muñoz and Betsy Struxness, and 1776 director Garry Hynes. Hosted by Encores! Artistic Director Jack Viertel. With performances by Justin Guarini and more.
