Good for you Jeff
Here’s my problem. I like musicals. I like old musicals and newer ones as well.
I’ve been in musicals, watched them live and helped produce two over the years.
I can’t get through Hamilton. Don’t like it. Lyrics are way too fast and
couldn’t understand a lot of it without subtitles. It has nothing to do with
the subject matter or the cast, I just don’t like it.
Hawana thinks that it’s the best musical in years and has watched it numerous
times on Disney+, and I have started it several times, but within 30 minutes I
just can’t stand it anymore. She keeps telling me that it gets better later on
and there’s beautiful soloists, but I can’t muster up the time to watch the
It’s like Fight Club and Bruce Springsteen. Only watched Fight Club after
starting it over 5 times because I was invited to a birthday party where
everyone watched it and it was the b-day boys favorite movie. Never liked or
tolerated any by Springsteen then or now.
So, of all the crap we could argue over, this is a wedge of like vs distain
for. Guess I will knuckle down and try again tonight provided we have power

I read Chernow’s biography of Hamilton first, then bought tickets to see the
play live, but they were canceled due to the pandemic, then was able to see
the play at home on Disney+ (and I watched it three times). You can watch a
video of the live performance many times for the price of one live ticket,
and closed captioning is helpful too. I liked it very much and recommend it.

Have any of you watched or been to a live production of Hamilton? Did you
dislike, like or rave about what you saw?
