CBC News – Inspired by Ron Chernow’s 2004 biography, Hamilton reimagines the tale of U.S. founding father Alexander Hamilton as a mashup of hip hop, pop and R&B-influenced show tunes precisely crafted by creator Lin-Manuel Miranda — who also led the original production’s cast of predominantly non-white actors portraying white historical American figures.

Along with the ever-popular edition on Broadway, multiple incarnations of Hamilton are on the go in cities like London, San Francisco and — as part of a North American tour — in Toronto, where it kicked off a three-month run on Wednesday night.
