April was a big month for the cast of Hamilton.
The Original Broadway Cast Album sold in excess of 500,000 copies which means they went GOLD.
If that couldn't be a big step for the show, in the same month, the show received the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. 1 of 9 musicals in history to win.
April was also the month the Hamilton book was released. Originally titled Hamilton: The Revolution, fans have taken to fondly calling it the "Hamiltome" The book takes you behind the scenes of the musical. From lyric construction, costume designs, cast comments, this book has everything a fan could want. Except for maybe Lin himself....
During this time, Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator of Hamilton, earns a spot on the wall of the famed theatre district restaurant, Sardi's. The restaurant has been the toasted of Broadway for over 90 years. Anyone whos anyone is up, as a caricature, on the wall of Sardi's.
