Oh my gosh, I forgot just how much I love this musical. Before yesterday I had seen the Broadway work of art a total of four times in the span of about two weeks and then I decided to take a break…a break that finally ended last night and once again, I was lost.
This Broadway masterpiece is truly one of the greatest things I have ever seen. Its attention to detail is staggering, its lyrics tell a story that is both complex and mostly accurate, the actors are simply outstanding, specifically Leslie Odom Jr. who does such a tremendous job breathing life into Aaron Burr’s side of the story, and of course, by the end, I was crying again. (Five times in a row and I haven’t been able to contain my tears.)
I cannot fully express in words how moving and inspiring Hamilton is to someone like me. Lin-Manuel Miranda provided the world something that feels poignant, powerful, and feels like a glimpse at what movies, television shows, and Broadway shows will and should look like in the coming decades. The idea that people of color can’t hold a show, aren’t as talented as other actors, and aren’t smart enough to produce the type of mediocre content that dominates our entertainment is laughable and Hamilton proves that point.
I love it, love it, love it so much and I can’t wait to see more Broadway shows in the future.
I thank you for reading my gush post about Hamilton and I hope you have a lovely day.
