–“And I think what Miranda has done with Hamilton captures the essence of America and immigration far more than any dry Supreme Court opinion in the United States Reports. It is not an exaggeration to say that Miranda’s work helps pave the way toward reconceptualizing (or restoring) our political system and reminding us of the dignity and promise of America at its best.” (Katyal 85)
-“Miranda has stated, “that many people who contribute to the prosperity of this nation aren’t born here.”4 Read in light of Hamilton’s larger themes, the line could be understood as a broad affirmation of the full range of immigrants’ contributions to society—large and small, tangible and intangible, visible and hidden.” (Kalhan 87)
-“The power is all the greater for being performed by a diverse cast, many of whom have their own recent family stories of immigration. Others descend from enslaved Americans whose story is one of forced migration, a story in the background of the musical, with nods from Laurens and Eliza in particular. With all these backgrounds, the cast and musicians imbue each
performance with love and respect for immigrants that leaps off the stage” (Keyes 93)
