Hamilton: An American Musical is a sung- and rapped-through musical about the life of American Founding Father Alexander Hamilton , with music, lyrics, and book by Lin-Manuel Miranda , inspired by the 2004 biography Alexander Hamilton by historian Ron Chernow . Incorporating hip hop , R&B , pop , soul , traditional-style show tunes , and color-conscious casting of non-white actors as the Founding Fathers and other historical figures, the musical achieved both critical acclaim and box office success.
