Bernie Sanders is taking a break from campaigning to enjoy another political drama: "Hamilton," the smash-hit Broadway musical about founding father Alexander Hamilton.

The Democratic presidential contender and his wife, Jane, took in the show after a day of campaigning around New York City. New York holds its primary April 19.

"Hamilton" is the hottest ticket on Broadway. Sanders rival Hillary Clinton has already seen it, and has quoted from it on the campaign trail.

Another high-profile fan is President Barack Obama, who invited its star and creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda, to the White House last month.
