HarryCarter Posted July 25, 2018 Report Share Posted July 25, 2018 The 2018 Kennedy Center Honors has been announced. They are honoring the team behind "Hamilton." The Kennedy Center has proven they are not what they once were. Good for Cher, though. Washington’s “Summer of ‘Hamilton” will stretch into December, when the Kennedy Center Honors salute the groundbreaking musical and its four creators, marking the first time a work of art has been spotlighted at the annual celebration of the performing arts. “Hamilton” and its creative team — composer-lyricist Lin-Manuel Miranda, director Thomas Kail, music director Alex Lacamoire, and choreographer Andy Blankenbuehler— will receive a special honor Dec. 2 in a ceremony that also salutes the lifetime achievements of composer Philip Glass, singer-actresses Cher and Reba McEntire, and jazz musician Wayne Shorter. https://www.washingtonpost.com/entertainment/in-kennedy-center-honors-first-hamilton-to-be-awarded-prestigious-arts-prize/2018/07/24/3c3d33b0-8f7e-11e8-b769-e3fff17f0689_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.3d497b405542 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
