cbsnews.com – After Sunday’s Tonys, tickets for “Hamilton” may be hard to come by, but if you’re an 11th grader in New York City’s public school system, there’s hope.
That’s because the show, with support from The Rockefeller Foundation, is selling $10 tickets to some 20,000 New York City students in order to educate them about the country’s founding fathers and this period of American history.
On a Wednesday in May, students filled the theater to see a matinee performance, but beforehand got a chance to ask the “Hamilton” cast questions, including one posed to the show’s creator Lin-Manuel Miranda about the role of diversity on Broadway. 60 Minutes cameras were there to record the event.
