2015 is the Morris-Jumel Mansion’s 250th Anniversary! And to celebrate, they are teaming up with The Public Theater to present a special benefit performance of Hamilton, the raucous, much-anticipated new musical written and played by Tony-award-winner (In The Heights), and good friend of the Mansion, Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Fusing contemporary hip-hop and classic Broadway style, Hamilton charts the origins, rise and dramatic death of one of America’s greatest minds; and on Thursday, February 5th, 2015, Morris-Jumel is giving history and theater lovers the chance to not only see the show, but also mingle with fellow friends of Morris-Jumel at a pre-performance cocktail reception and meet and talk with Lin-Manuel and the director, Tony-award nominee Thomas Kail, at an intimate post-show Q&A.
