NOTE: This event has been rescheduled to Wed., Oct. 12 due to Hurricane Matthew. Reservations for the original event will be honored.

This Wed. Oct. 5, ETV, SCETV and The College of Charleston Arts Management Program host an unforgettable sneak-peek of the documentary Hamilton’s America. This film explores the smash hit Broadway show, Hamilton, and delves into the visions of creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, who also starred in the show, winning Tony and Grammy awards, as well as a Pulitzer Prize.

Attendees will get to see a 30-minute sneak peek of the upcoming documentary which will be broadcast in full on Oct. 21 on SCETV. Dr. Nic Butler, historian-in-residence for the Charleston County Public Library, will discuss the Broadway show in a new light, comparing and contrasting Hamilton’s connections to the true Alexander Hamilton.

The event, held at Sottile Theater, is free to the public, though it is currently at capacity. Head here to get on the waiting list. And if you don’t make it, make sure to tune in on Oct. 21 to SCETV to start watching Hamilton’s America in full.
