The ten-dollar founding father stole the cannons of his Broadway rivals as Lin-Manuel Miranda's "Hamilton" dominated the 2016 Tony Award nominations. When the smoke had cleared from the delayed live feed from New York's Paramount Hotel, "Hamilton" had landed in a record-setting 16 different ballot categories, including best musical, which, barring the reincarnation of Aaron Burr with a pistol, it seems certain to win.

Nonetheless, the new musicals "Waitress," "School of Rock - The Musical," "Bright Star" and "Shuffle Along, Or the Making of the Musical Sensation of 1921 and All That Followed" are officially in the running for the most important Tony when it comes to money in the bank.

It's the original Broadway cast that was filmed during their run.

What blows me away about this musical is the music.

He took 90s R&B and Hip Hop and gave the musical score structure and chord structure of Les Mis. Then added so many sonic and lyrical references to those 90s artists. It's just an unbelievable full work of art.
