Clap for Them: ‘Hamilton’ Pulls a Pulitzer

Kudos to the play that takes colorblind casting to the next level!   “Hamilton,” the  Broadway juggernaut that has turned the story of the Founding Fathers on its homogenous head, has nabbed 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.  This is a rarity for musicals, though it has happened in the past, specifically with 90s-era classic, Rent.”

Hamilton’s mastermind and official White House freestyle king, Lin-Manuel Miranda, had this to say about the honor.
