Ishmael Reed reviews performance of Broadway play “Hamilton”

Ishmael Reed has been critical of the Broadway performance Hamilton since its debut. He summarizes his perspective on a recent viewing of its performance in an article in The San Francisco Chronicle‘s Datebook:

A full production of my play, ” The Haunting of Lin-Manuel Miranda,” beginning May 23 at the Nuyorican Poets Café in New York, and directed by the award-winning Rome Neal, will not only present voices that are missing from “Hamilton: The Revolution” — Native Americans, slaves and white indentured servants — but also expose an upheaval that is happening in the American Historical Establishment as women, blacks, Native American and Latinx have their say.
