Hamilton

So I saw the Hamilton musical last night. I'm not much into theater, but I was pretty impressed. Really clever how they work the history into music and songs, and some pretty funny stuff, too. Assuming it was basically factually true, there was some interesting stuff I wasn't aware of, like how he was extorted over an affair.

Also, I didn't know Hamilton was black, as were all of founding fathers that were in it. Except for Washington, who was a chinaman. King Geoge, portrayed as an effeminate spurned lover, was played by a white guy.

Anyway, I'd give it 4.5 of 5 stars and recommend to all CP DCers

I was really more curious if there was a “premium” on tix for this particular show. It doesn’t appear that way.

Side note: you can pre-order now for “Menopause: The Musical” coming in 2020.

I have been a bit curious what the particular level of passion is about.
Genuinely, not in a gotcha kind of way.
Obviously, it's a big sell, but even more, there's talk of masses openly weeping in the lobby afterwards, seemingly in awe, joy and revelation, akin to a tent revival or a Beatles concert.
Certainly plenty of people have gushed about it.

But they always talk in the broadest of generalities, . . moving, amazing, life-changing, brilliant.

I understand the marketing value of buzz, but by this point, I'd think people would be a little more specific about the aspects of the show that moved them, or what made the show so distinctive.

I assumed you were in NY. When I was there a couple years ago the tickets were going for $1500. I was just curious what they were now.

So, just saw "Hamilton"... I'd give it a 7/10. Well done, but not the greatest thing I've ever seen. Certainly not on par for me with things like "Phantom", "Les Mis", "JCS", or timeless classics like "South Pacific" and "The Sound Of Music". (Can't really compare to some of my other faves in the humor area like "Avenue Q", "Book Of Mormon", or "Something Rotten", as it's a different genre). I feared the overpopularity of this had a bit of an 'emperor's new clothes' thing going on and I think I was accurate with that assessment.

The Good:

- Excellent staging (choreography was some of the best I've seen).

- Solid performances from everyone in the cast. Everyone danced amazing, acted amazing, had great voices, and sang very fast and complicated lyrics.

- Interesting (if complicated) story. Taught me a lot I didn't know about the guy on the $10 bill.

The Not So Good:

- The rapping. Nothing against that music genre, but when you're telling a historical narrative of a man whose life isn't that well known to the audience, it's not the best choice. Honestly, they sang so fast that I couldn't understand most of it. It's not a great lyrical style unless your sound guy is totally on point with volume levels of speaker vs. music. For the first few shows this season my local theater experimented with a closed-captioning system on the side of the stage; the first time I saw it I thought it detracted from the show, but once I got used to its presence I realized it was incredibly helpful to glance over and fill in words I'd missed in the singing. That would've been a help here.

- The music in general. I like Lin-Manuel Miranda but his music is like vanilla ice cream: it's enjoyable, but it's unremarkable. His other works are "In The Heights" and "Bring It On"... if you can name a song from those, you're better than I am. All of his stuff basically sounds the same. There's nothing memorable to grab you and stand out.

To be honest, I think one of the big draws of this show is that it's people of color performing historical roles of whites. And while that's interesting and thought provoking, it also shouldn't be the only reason something is popular. If "Hamilton" from the get-go had been white actors, honestly I doubt it would've even made a blip on the Broadway radar, because standing on its merits of songwriting it's just not that amazing. Just my opinion.

Hamilton was xenophobic racist.

Certainly plenty of people have gushed about it.

But they always talk in the broadest of generalities, . . moving, amazing, life-changing, brilliant.

Finally got around to watching, and what I saw . . . gotta say, . . . lives up to the hype.

Not the hype of being a blubbering mess with no words to describe my ecstasy. But certainly the hype of being one of the better musicals I've seen or heard.

Went a little underhanded to view it, but it's tough to argue with the results. There is a [ahem] shared file online that has a dead steady HD video from center balcony that has perfectly synched sound that had to somehow blended from the soundtrack, and it has subtitles. Hard to imagine a better all-around experience, even live. And it's all the original cast.

I don't think the songs individually are all that memorable, but they blend in and out of each other to recall motifs that reinforce the narrative. And it is lyrically DENSE. It would be tough to enjoy this as much as I did without subtitles.

And while the songs are not memorable blockbusters, they are catchy melodies that create a palpable mood throughout.

You can't really point to one thing, like a memorable Les Mis or Cats solo number, or a blockbuster dance. It's just relentlessly paced and information packed.

The closest thing to a 'hit' number for me was Helpless and it really is a blockbuster. The melody sticks with you. The story is coherent, effficent and moving.

Version staged for Youtube



Bootleg from Broadway original. Not as good quality, but shows the stage choreography and highlights Soo's excellent voice.



The women in the show really are the stars for me. My favorite three parts are Helpless, the rewind to Angelica's version of the scene from Helpess, and Schuyler sisters.

And to that, Philippa Soo as Eliza is by FAR the standout of the show, Such a perfect voice.

If I had to pick a 4th favorite, it was Burr's dance number from Room Where It Happens.

Not a LOT of comic relief, but Jonathan Groff is pitch perfect as GIII. He plays him as a detached skeptic of whatever nonsense America was trying to pull. Every time there was a setback in the revolution or a scandal, he flounced on stage to gloat 'told you governing was hard, tra lalalala'

A bit that a lot of people might miss is when Hamilton's scandal comes out and the company breaks into 'never be president' he steps on stage for just a moment to dab and smirk.



BTW the entire soundtrack is easily available track by track on youtube, for those interested in that experience.
