Free Saturdays: Guest Lecture with Richard Bell

SEE EVENT DETAILS
As part of our initiative to welcome all San Francisco residents to the museums free on Saturdays, we will provide free unique museum experiences celebrating the city we love.

Join us in the Koret auditorum for a special lecture on Hamilton: the Musical from historian, Dr. Richard Bell. In this talk, which is aimed at people who know the soundtrack or who’ve seen the show, University of Maryland historian Dr. Richard Bell explores this musical phenomenon to reveal what its success tells us about the marriage of history and show-business. We’ll learn what this amazing musical gets right and gets wrong about Alexander Hamilton, the American Revolution, and the birth of the United Sates and about why all that matters. We will examine some of the choices Hamilton’s creators made to simplify, dramatize, and humanize the complicated events and stories on which the show is based. We will also talk about Hamilton’s cultural impact: what does its runaway success reveal about the stories we tell each other about who we are and about the nation we made?
