產品試閱 : Hamilton: An American Musical

Inspired by the 2004 1)biography Alexander Hamilton by historian Ron Chernow, Hamilton is a 2)sung-through hip hop musical about the life of American Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, with music, lyrics and book by Lin-Manuel Miranda. Hip hop and Broadway may seem like an odd combination, but not to Miranda, who grew up a fan of both in the 3)Hispanic neighborhood of Washington Heights in Manhattan. He began combining the two—along with Latin music—in his 2008 Broadway musical In the Heights, which he began writing while studying film and theater at Wesleyan University. A 4)tribute to his old neighborhood, the musical won Tonys for Best Musical and Best Original Score, allowing Miranda to quit his day job as a 5)substitute teacher and become a full-time actor, 6)playwright and composer.



漢密爾頓:美國音樂劇

《漢密爾頓》音樂劇的靈感來自2004年朗車諾所寫的《亞歷山大漢密爾頓》傳記,是全劇以歌唱方式呈現的嘻哈音樂劇,敘述美國開國元勳亞歷山大漢密爾頓的人生,詞曲和劇本由林曼努爾米蘭達所寫。嘻哈音樂與百老匯的結合或許看起來有點怪異,但對米蘭達來說一點也不怪,他在曼哈頓華盛頓高地的西裔社區長大,熱愛嘻哈音樂和百老匯。他在2008年的音樂劇《身在高地》中就開始結合兩者──加上拉丁樂,這是他就讀衛斯理大學學電影和戲劇時開始創作的。這齣音樂劇是為了向他的老家街坊致敬所創作,不但贏得東尼獎最佳音樂劇和最佳原創配樂,也讓他得以辭去朝九晚五的代課老師工作,成為全職演員、劇作家和作曲家。



While on vacation in Mexico—playing the lead role in his hit musical night after night was tiring—Miranda read Chernow’s Hamilton biography. Just a few chapters in, he began imagining the story as a hip hop musical; this 7)rebellious form of music seemed like the perfect language for describing Hamilton’s difficult childhood and his 8)participation in the American 9)Revolution. Miranda began writing songs for his new musical, and when invited to perform music from In the Heights at a White House event in 2009, he sang “Alexander Hamilton”—which would become the first song in Hamilton—instead. By the end of his performance, the whole audience was standing, even the Obamas. When Hamilton debuted on Broadway in August 2015, it was a box office 10)sensation. Every show sold out, even when the average ticket price reached $1,000—and that’s if you could even get a ticket. Hamilton was 11)nominated for a record 16 Tony Awards the following year, winning 11, including Best Musical, Best Book and Best Original Score. And as if that weren’t enough, Miranda won a Pulitzer Prize for drama, and the original Broadway cast recording won a Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album.



在墨西哥度假時──因為每晚在賣座音樂劇中飾演主角讓他非常疲憊──米蘭達看了車諾的漢密爾頓傳記。只看了幾章,他就開始想像用嘻哈音樂劇的方式呈現這個故事;用這種叛逆的音樂形式呈現漢密爾頓艱困的童年和參與美國革命的故事似乎很完美。於是米蘭達開始為新的音樂劇創作歌曲,他在2009年受邀到白宮表演《身在高地》的音樂時,卻唱了「亞歷山大漢密爾頓」──這首歌後來變成《漢密爾頓》的第一首歌。在表演結束時,所有觀眾都起立致敬,包括歐巴馬夫婦。《漢密爾頓》於2015年8月在百老匯首演時,票房開出大紅盤。就算票價平均高達一千美元,每場演出的門票都賣光──而且一票難求。隔年《漢密爾頓》獲得16項東尼獎提名,創下紀錄,並贏得11項獎,包括最佳音樂劇、最佳劇本和最佳原創配樂。不僅如此,米蘭達也獲得普立茲戲劇獎,且百老匯首演卡司專輯也獲得葛萊美最佳音樂劇專輯獎。

Alexander Hamilton



[Burr]

How does a bastard, orphan, son of a whore and a

Scotsman, dropped in the middle of a forgotten

Spot in the Caribbean by providence, impoverished, in squalor

Grow up to be a hero and a scholar?

[Laurens]

The ten-dollar Founding Father without a father

Got a lot farther by working a lot harder

By being a lot smarter, by being a self-starter

By fourteen, they placed him in charge of a trading charter

[Jefferson]

And every day while slaves were being slaughtered and carted

Away across the waves, he struggled and kept his guard up

Inside, he was longing for something to be a part of

The brother was ready to beg, steal, borrow, or barter

[Madison]

Then a hurricane came, and devastation reigned

Our man saw his future drip, dripping down the drain

Put a pencil to his temple, connected it to his brain

And he wrote his first refrain, a testament to his pain

[Burr]

Well, the word got around, they said, “This kid is insane, man”

Took up a collection just to send him to the mainland

“Get your education, don’t forget from whence you came, and

The world’s gonna know your name.

What’s your name, man?”

[Hamilton]

Alexander Hamilton, my name is Alexander Hamilton

And there’s a million things I haven’t done

But just you wait, just you wait

[Eliza]

When he was ten his father split, full of it, debt-ridden

Two years later, see Alex and his mother bed-ridden

Half-dead sitting in their own sick, the scent thick

[All]

And Alex got better, but his mother went quick

[Washington]

Moved in with a cousin, the cousin committed suicide

Left him with nothing but ruined pride, something new inside

A voice saying, “You gotta fend for yourself”

He started retreating and reading every treatise on the shelf

[Burr]

There would have been nothing left to do

For someone less astute

He would’ve been dead or destitute

Without a cent of restitution

Started working, clerking for his late mother’s landlord

Trading sugar cane and rum and all the things he can’t afford

Scamming for every book he can get his hands on

Planning for the future see him now as he stands on

The bow of a ship headed for a new land

In New York you can be a new man

[All]

In New York you can be a new man

[Hamilton]

Just you wait! Just you wait!

[All]

Alexander Hamilton

We are waiting in the wings for you

You could never back down

You never learned to take your time!

Oh, Alexander Hamilton

When America sings for you

Will they know what you overcame?

Will they know you rewrote the game?

The world will never be the same, oh

[Burr]

The ship is in the harbor now, see if you can spot him

Another immigrant coming up from the bottom

His enemies destroyed his rep, America forgot him

[Mulligan/Madison/Lafayette/Jefferson]

We fought with him

[Laurens/Philip]

Me? I died for him

[Washington]

Me? I trusted him

[Eliza/Angelica]

Me? I loved him

[Burr]

And me? I’m the damn fool that shot him

[All]

There’s a million things I haven’t done

But just you wait!

[Burr]

What’s your name, man?

[All]

Alexander Hamilton!





Hollywood Stars on Broadway

近期在百老匯登台的明星



Jake Gyllenhaal

《斷背山》男星Jake Gyllenhaal(傑克葛倫霍)的百老匯處女秀,是與東尼獎得主 Annaleigh Ashford 共同擔綱演出的 Sunday In the Park with George《星期天與喬治同遊公園》。這齣獲得普立茲獎肯定的音樂劇,是由 Stephen Sondheim 作詞、作曲(James Lapine 原著),以法國後印象派畫家秀拉(Georges Seurat,1859~1891)名畫《大碗島的星期天下午》(A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte)為舞台背景,演出大畫家及他曾孫的故事。



“Jake Gyllenhaal is radiant. His searing theatrical presence and unwavering focus seems to consume and illuminate the dark. He has a voice of richly flexible timbre that confidently elicits the most delicate shades of passion and despair.”

Ben Brantley, The New York Times

傑克葛倫霍的光芒四射。他熾熱的舞台魅力與全心投入,像是能吞噬黑暗,照亮四周。他渾厚的音色富有彈性,將熱情與絕望最幽微的起伏變化展現無遺。



Glenn Close

儘管大眾最有印象的演出是她在迪士尼電影 101 Dalmatians《101 真狗》當中的恐怖壞女人Cruella de Vil,但東尼獎三屆最佳話劇/音樂劇女主角得主 Glenn Close(葛倫克蘿絲)可是百老匯磨練出來的全方位藝人,不論是演出話劇、音樂劇、電影,或是擔任電影製作人,都能演什麼像什麼。而她在百老匯最膾炙人口的演出,是韋伯音樂劇 Sunset Boulevard《日落大道》的 Norma Desmond(1993-1994年),2016 年在倫敦西區及百老匯復排重演,仍大獲好評,《紐約時報》稱之為「本世紀最偉大舞台演出之一(one of the great stage performances of this century)」。



“Glenn is giving one of those legendary performances people will be talking about years from now. The actress takes breathtaking risks, venturing so far out on a limb at times that you fear it will snap. It doesn’t.” -- David Richards, The New York Times

葛倫的演出將成為人們傳頌多年的傳奇。這位女演員的不顧一切令人窒息,她冒險的程度高到讓人擔心隨時會出包。卻沒有。
