Alexander Hamilton Returns—History Meets Broadway

Instructor:  Peter Reilly

  • Thursday Afternoon
  • 1:00 – 3:00 pm

This course is a repeat of the “Alexander Hamilton” course taught during the Winterim session with more time for class discussion and sharing of ideas. It is essentially a history course about the founding of our country. It will be told thru the life and times of Alexander Hamilton. Woven throughout the course will be the music and story behind the Broadway hit musical “Hamilton.” Studying Hamilton, we will not only share his exciting life and incredible contributions to forming our government, but also learn how the Broadway musical became such a spectacular success. If you have seen the show this course may help explain what you’ve seen. If you haven’t seen it, it may help explain what you will see. Lin-Manuel Miranda will have much to say.

Peter Reilly has presented numerous well-received classes at Senior College on a variety of topics. He holds a BS and MBA from Monmouth University.
