Hamilton Is Officially A Pulitzer Prize-Winning Musical! Find Out Why That's So Rare!

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesAwardzGIFs

Congratulations to the cast and crew of Hamilton!

They didn't throw away their shot!

It seems like most people have been addicted to Hamilton ever since it opened on Broadway last year, and now, the acclaimed musical is taking home a HUGE honor to justify everyone's insane obsession!

On Monday, the Alexander Hamilton-inspired production received this year's Pulitzer Prize for Drama!

This is an even bigger deal when you take into account only nine musicals have ever won the award over plays. The most recent ones to claim the prize were Next to Normal in 2010 and then all the way back to Rent in 1996!

And, Lin Manuel-Miranda's show received this rare recognition on the 100th anniversary of the awards, which celebrate impressive work in the arts and journalism.

Nice!

We're so proud of the cast and crew, and are SURE this is a good sign for Hamilton's chances at the 70th Annual Tony Awards later this year!
