I can’t believe I got to see Hamilton today!
Amanda got a special offer to buy two tickets before they went on sale to the public, because she has been a loyal patron of group ticketing. Score!
THIS IS HAPPENING ! ! ! ! ! !
The show was phenomenal. Truly lives up to all the hype; it’s an intricate piece of art. Our cast was outstanding. I actually prefer some of their interpretations over the OBC album – no one can live up to Daveed Diggs but even our Lafayette/Jefferson gave an admirable performance. The choreography on this show is just insane. I’m glad Andy Blankenbuehler gets as much billing as Miranda and Lacamoire, his work was genius. I only went through 3 tissues during the second act. There’s a reason I hardly ever listen past the Cabinet Battle #1 when I put on the album.
I hope this was the first of several viewings over my lifetime. We will try to get lottery tickets for Ben to get to go, and of course if it tours around here again we will try to get tickets too. But the show is 3 years old and selling out instantly – our kids might be old enough to attend before we can easily buy tickets. I also hope they release the recorded video of the show that they did with the OBC in NY before it changed. Wait for it, right?
PS, yeah I know I’ve been terrible about writing lately. I’ll try to catch up on some things from the last month.
