On Monday, the historical musical phenomenon “Hamilton” won the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama — one of only eight musicals to do so.
Before the show premiered on Broadway in August 2015, composer-lyricist, director, and star Lin-Manuel Miranda performed the opening number to the musical — the then mix-tape — for President Obama at “An Evening of Poetry and Music: The Spoken Word” in May 2009.
