We are Obsessed with Hamilton
We managed to score resale tickets to Hamilton this past week. Attending the extraordinary show is an investment, but you can enjoy the music at any time. We were thrilled to learn that last year Rockefeller Foundation made a grant to allow 20,000 New York City public school students see this stunning work of art for subsidized, $10 tickets.
We are ordering Ron Chernow's book, Alexander Hamilton, that inspired Lin-Manual Miranda to create this masterpiece. Miranda is utterly brilliant and earned a prestigious MacArthur fellowship in 2015. To say we cannot wait for the Hamilton "Mix-Tape" Album is an under-statement. We adore all the songs, but have Jonathan's Groff's "You'll Be Back" and "What Comes Next" on repeat - listening to them seems particularly hilarious with the Presidential election frenzy here in the U.S. Groff is a fan-favorite as King George III. The crowd erupted into enthusiastic whoops and roars each time he graced the stage.
We have one question: Is Hollywood fighting over the movie rights yet? The talented and diverse cast are simply sensational. #Hamilton #Hip Hop
