Paramount and PBS collaborate on screening of “Hamilton America”

Friday, Oct. 7 at 7:30 p.m.—RUTLAND—In a unique collaboration between the Paramount Theatre and Vermont PBS, the Paramount will host the Vermont premiere screening of “Hamilton’s America” on Friday, Oct. 7 at 7:30 p.m. The film was made during the creation of the original production of “Hamilton” and features Lin-Manuel Miranda at the center of the film. Audience members will meet other cast members, see musical numbers and book scenes in rehearsal and hear, in-depth, the creative beginnings of the inspiration which birthed the now iconic sold out run of the hip-hop musical sensation of a generation.
Following the screening, Garrett Graff, historian, journalist and author, will give a talk linking Alexander Hamilton and how the “Hamilton” treatment of his life and death links to the world in which we live today. Graff was the editor of The Washingtonian Magazine for seven years and was an editor at POLITICO for three years. He is a free-lance writer for POLITICO and other publications and now resides in Burlington.
The screening is free of charge; donations will be accepted. The Paramount Theatre is located at 30 Center Street, Rutland. For more information, visit paramountlive.org.
