Broadway muscial Hamilton was awarded the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama on Monday and became the 9th musical in the 100-year history to win the honor. The musical had been widely predicted in the industry as the hopeful for both Pulitzer and the upcoming Tony Awards in June.
Inspired by Ron Chernow’s biography Alexander Hamilton, the show retrospects the story of the founding fathers and the history of American Independence, integrating a variety of music style including rap, hip-hop, R&B and pop. It has enjoyed unanimous critical acclaim among both critics and the public since its debut at the Public Theater last February.
《汉密尔顿》由作家Ron Chernow的《亚历山大·汉密尔顿》改编，结合包括rap, hip-hop, R&B和pop在内的多种音乐形式，回顾了美国国父们的故事和美国独立的历史。本剧自去年二月在百老汇上映以来，获得了评论家和公众的一致喝彩。
