Frank Rizzo, former theater critic for The Hartford Courant, will present a two-part multimedia lecture titled "Hamilton! The Musical" at The Mark Twain House & Museum, 351 Farmington Ave. in Hartford, on April 20 and 27.
In the presentation, Rizzo will explain why the musical has become a phenomenon, partially deconstruct the musical work by Lin-Manuel
Miranda and his collaborators and analyze how the show made history.
Rizzo teaches a "Hamilton!" class for the University of Hartford’s Presidents’ College program and will teach a full undergraduate course next year at Quinnipiac University in Hamden. The lectures will take place at 7 p.m. each day. Tickets for the two-class event are $60, $55 for members of the Twain House and Let’s GO Arts! members. No single-ticket lecture tickets will be sold. Tickets: 860-247-0998 and marktwainhouse.org
