Here's your chance to see Hamilton on stage for free! (Just not exactly the way you might be hoping.)
Whoever would have thought so many dead white dudes would be so popular 200 years after they walked this earth? Certainly not them, that's for sure. But the hottest of the hot is surely Mr. Alexander Hamilton who, after going on a recent run on Tonys, is now being celebrated with an entire summer all his own at the American Historical Society complete with numerous unique one-off events and a full museum-wide celebration of this founding father. Join them this Sunday for a recreation of the famous duel that killed "Alex" with, My First Friend, My Enemy: The Hamilton and Burr Duel at 1pm or 3pm free with museum admission ($20, $12 for students).
Take a trip back through time—and over to the Upper West Side—and learn about the man before he became a dancin' and rappin' Broadway sensation from some true "Living Historians." Trust us, you'll be glad you made the effort. Like Times Square Elmos, you can't trust just any old historical re-enactors that you run into on the street in ratty costumes from the 1800s. No, these guys are are par excellence in their field and completely above board with little to no touching. Ahh history...
