The recorded-live feature stream of Hamilton was a smash for Disney+, but the Broadway hit’s revolutionary twist on American mythology came with a whole new unplanned context as it played out against the backdrop of chaos and controversy in real-life media.

This is The Big Picture with Bob Chipman, talking about Hamilton and its significance.
