NPR Profiles Hamilton Education Program

The radio journalists at NPR followed some of the 20,000 New York City students who are getting a chance to see the Broadway smash Hamilton thanks to a program of The Rockefeller Foundation and the Gilder Lehrman Institute. A capstone of the Hamilton Education Program is the performance piece based on historical documents that each student must create before coming to the show. Selected students even get to perform at the Richard Rodgers Theatre before the matinee!
