The story of how Hamilton was made, with details on all the actors and producers, complete with all the lyrics and annotations by Lin Manuel Miranda. Did I accidentally stay up until midnight on a weeknight reading annotations? You bet your sweet bippy. Gorgeous, glorious pictures, amazing facts and details. What helped me the most was seeing all of the hip hop and rap allusions and samples spelled out--I know pop and musicals, so I caught a lot of those references, but I was flying in the dark for 99% of these. The combination of everything really is magical and special.
