Funko has announced new Pop! vinyl figures from the award-winning Broadway musical Hamilton: An American Musical.
Hamilton Pop! vinyl figures in the Pop! Broadway series.
Hamilton: An American Musical is a musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda and tells the story of the American Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. The musical is inspired by Ron Chernow’s 2004 biography of Alexander Hamilton.
Divided in two acts, the musical depicts the life and career of Alexander Hamilton, an orphaned immigrant from the Caribbean island of Nevis. The first act covers Hamilton’s arrival in New York City in 1776, his work in the Continental Army as an aide-de-camp to General George Washington during the American Revolution, and his courtship and marriage to Eliza Schuyler.
The second act covers Hamilton’s postwar work as the first Secretary of the Treasury of the United States, his affair with Maria Reynolds, the death of his son Philip and finally his own death in a duel with Aaron Burr.
The show draws heavily from Hip Hop, as well as R&B, pop, soul and traditional-style show tunes, and the musical casts non-white actors as the Founding Fathers and other historical figures.
Miranda described Hamilton as about “America then, as told by America now.” Hamilton the musical received critical acclaim and a filmed version of the Broadway production was released on Disney+ in 2020.
