While on a vacation from his hit Broadway show In The Heights, Lin-Manuel Miranda decided to pick up a biography to read on his trip. At the airport he purchased and began reading Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow, a comprehensive biography of Alexander Hamilton’s life. Miranda quickly began envisioning the life of Hamilton as a musical and researched whether or not a stage musical of Hamilton’s life had been created. A play of the story had been done on Broadway in 1917, starring George Arliss as Alexander Hamilton. Upon Miranda’s discovery that a musical had not yet been done, he began his work. It began as a project titled “The Hamilton Mixtape” that Miranda worked on during his spare time from Heights. On May 12, 2009, Miranda performed at the White House Evening of Poetry, Music, and the Spoken Word where he performed the opening number from The Hamilton Mixtapes. He spent a year after that working on another early number from the show, “My Shot.”
