We were all excited to watch Hamilton over the holiday weekend. Like so many families, ours had a strong bout of Hamilton-Mania back when it was a national sensation. The soundtrack was on all the time and the kids sang the songs themselves when it wasn’t. There was a minor flareup when the show started to tour the US, but it died down pretty quickly. This week leading up to the Disney+ debut of the filmed stage production saw a return to the full-blown Mania but this time I was also excited about it.
I was the last person in the family to see it and it somehow exceeded my expectations. The show is great. The way it’s filmed is great. It looks and sounds so good that I never felt like I was watching a filmed stage production. I can’t recommend it enough if it something you’re remotely interested in.
