Hamilton

hamitlon 2

First of all,  I don’t like musicals.

Who fast forwards through the music numbers during the TV show Glee?

I did.

What a weirdo.

So that gives you an idea.  Pretty bad.

So when my friend could get a fabulous deal on Hamilton tickets, one would think that I would turn that down.

But noooo.

I have heard people rant and rave about Hamilton, I’ve read the reviews, I know how tickets were thousands of dollars in New York and very hard to come by. It’s the hot thing since 2015 when it opened.

So you need to know I also have a bad fear of missing out.

So my dislike of musicals combined with my fear of missing out.

I tried it.

And…oh I looooved it!!!

Great singing, amazing music and funny.

Love funny.

Not only did we get to see this fantastic musical, but we got to tour backstage too.

My friend Gayle (who I can never repay for the great tickets as I have no social status in the Valley, nor good hook ups) has a friend who works with the tour.

So we got to go tour backstage.

Pinch me, right?

It’s amazing to see the amount of people that put a show like this together.

Here’s a complete rip off about the musical on Google.

An American Musical is a sung- and rapped-through musical about the life of American  Founding Father Alexander Hamiltonwith music, lyrics, and book by Lin-Manuel Miranda, inspired by the 2004 biography Alexander Hamilton by historian Ron Chernow. Notably incorporating hip-hop, rhythm and blues, pop music, soul music, traditional-style show tunes, and color-conscious casting of non-white actors as the Founding Fathers and other historical figures, the musical achieved both critical acclaim and box office success.

It’s a definite bucket list item.

There is supposed to be a movie adaptation, but when that’s happening, no one knows.
