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.
