Hamilton the Musical
I’ve been a fan of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s work after I listened to the ‘In the Heights’ and got the chance to see it live a while back ago. Now, Miranda is back with a fresh new musical about one of the founding fathers of America- Alexander Hamilton.
I listened to the soundtrack for Hamilton the Musical and I am HOOKED! The mix of broadway, hip-hop, and R&B is just genius. The music is so catchy and full of energy. I can only imagine what it would be like to see the show live. And despite the story in the beginnings of America, the color-blind casting also just really makes me happy :’D As Lin-Manuel Miranda explained, “This is a story about America then, told by America now. It looks like America now.”
Highlights: King George’s break up song with America, “You’ll Be Back” and Thomas Jefferson’s “Whaaaaaaat”
