Watch: On Broadway, Who Tells 'Their' Stories?

Hamilton's Javier Muñoz (Screenshot)

From the Gershwins’ madcap Of Thee I Sing to Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hip-hop masterpiece Hamilton, Broadway composers have long been drawn to stories about towering political figures, the women they will never satisfy, and the complicated legacies they leave behind.

In the final installment of our Encores! Unscripted conversation series, we dig into the process of bringing American icons to life with Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson composer Michael Friedman, Hamilton stars Javier Muñoz and Betsy Struxness, and 1776 director Garry Hynes. Hosted by Encores! Artistic Director Jack Viertel. With performances by Justin Guarini and more.

I was able to watch live and this was a fascinating discussion. Having seen Hamilton, I loved the way Javier and Betsy described how the show was put together.
