If you're wondering why a lot of people (mostly college students) can't seem to stop talking about Hamilton: An American Musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda, or why your friends keep posting about it online, we've listed down the reasons why this new Broadway musical has become a worldwide phenomenon. You're welcome. 

  1. It's a hip-hop musical.

Let's admit it, a lot of teens are really not a fan of history and stage plays. And when you put them together, it's really not the kind of performance that would make you say, "shut up and take my money!" But what makes this play special (among many other things) is that the Founding Father of America, Alexander Hamilton's story is told using the hip-hop genre. 

  1. His character is so relatable.

Not the first secretary of treasury kind of relatable, though. He's relatable in a sense that he, too, wants to speak out. A lot of young people want to voice out their opinions, but can't because of the society we live in. Even though people told him he has no right, Alexander Hamilton still fought for what he believed in.

Once you listen to the soundtrack, get ready to be obsessed with it! It doesn't only have catchy (and amazing rap parts), but also a good story to tell. And because of this, it's hard to pick a favorite song—they'll all make you want to watch the musical in person.

  1. The choreography is so on point.

Of course, if there's a catchy song, there's also a right-on-track choreography. Now you can sing and dance (and pretend you're in the musical) while listening to the soundtrack!

  1. Quotable lyrics!

The musical doesn't only tell the story of Alexander Hamilton, but also focuses on the passion, strength, and devotion he has through the lyrics, making you understand the characters even more.

  1. It's a great tribute to history.

To America, perhaps. But then again, history is history. And every country's history is an inspiring story to hear.

Are you obsessed with Hamilton, too?
