Making American History Great Again ﹣ 一個充滿戲劇性的創作故事

在香港提起音樂劇,相信大家聯想到的應該都是《West Side Story》、《Les Misérables》、《The Phantom of the Opera》、《Rent》、《Cats》和《Wicked》等膾炙人口的作品,但整體的普及程度遠遠不及電影。無他,在這個彈丸之地,表演場地有限,加上音樂劇十居其九都是以英文演出,很多人已經退而卻步。正因如此令我決定撰文介紹這套獲獎無數的音樂劇《Hamilton》,由公演開始就已經好評如潮,並迅速成為流行文化的重要一份子。

前文提及過《Hamilton》是一套以hip-hop/rap 為主體的歷史音樂劇,選擇這個方式的原因之一,是可以在最短時間內訴說一個故事,而這個想法早在創作人Lin-Manuel Miranda 第一次閱讀〈Alexander Hamilton〉這本傳記時就已經萌生。 247 more words
