Time Out Says

Opened in 1924 as the 46th Street Theatre, the space was renamed in 1990 to honor the legendary composer Richard Rodgers (Oklahoma!, Carousel, The Sound of Music). This Nederlander-owned theater (1,319 seats) has hosted several beloved musicals including Anything Goes, Damn Yankees, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and Movin' Out. Extra fun for little Broadway buffs: Check out the Richard Rodgers Gallery, featuring memorabilia from the composer’s career.

No wonder the show was anointed a sensation before even opening. Assuming you don’t know the basics, ­Hamilton is a (mostly) rapped-through biomusical about an orphan immigrant from the Caribbean who came to New York, served as secretary to General Washington, fought against the redcoats, authored most of the Federalist Papers defending the Constitution, founded the Treasury and the New York Post and even made time for an extramarital affair that he damage-controlled in a scandal-stanching pamphle
