Hamilton: The Museum Exhibition Leverages Pro AV for Immersive Storytelling
Creators of the Broadway musical Hamilton aren’t done giving their man his shot. Responding to audience demand for more, they partnered with manufacturers, integrators, and historians to create the traveling showcase Hamilton: The Museum Exhibition. The technological spectacle thoughtfully presents an immersive exhibit blending art, history, and education surrounding Alexander Hamilton, our country’s founding fathers, and the events of the American Revolution.
Hamilton: The Museum Exhibition is a collaboration among Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, director Thomas Kail, creative director and set designer David Korins, producer Jeffrey Seller, orchestrator Alex Lacamoire, and Yale University historian and historical advisor to the exhibit Joanne B. Freeman. Harvard Law professor and historian Annette Gordon-Reed provided historical consultation.
To match the musical’s high production values, creators of this Hamilton project partnered with exhibition consultants IMG and integrator Design Electronics (DE). The exhibit, which opened in Chicago in April, is enjoying wide critical acclaim for the way its creators were able to blend art, history, drama, and education into one spectacular experience.
