NEW YORK (AP) Some 20,000 New York City high school students will see the Broadway hit "Hamilton" thanks to a $1.46 million grant from the Rockefeller Foundation.

Classroom materials integrating "Hamilton" into the 11th-grade U.S. history curriculum will be provided under the program announced Tuesday.

"Hamilton" was created by Lin-Manuel Miranda. It uses hip-hop to tell the story of the Founding Fathers. It is based on historian Ron Chernow's biography of Alexander Hamilton.

The high school initiative will start next spring. The producers of "Hamilton" will make tickets to select Wednesday matinees available for $70. The Rockefeller Foundation will subsidize $60 of each ticket and students will pay just $10.

Rockefeller Foundation President Judith Rodin calls "Hamilton" ''a groundbreaking work of genius" and says everyone should have the opportunity to see it.
