So I've finally seen Hamilton. I went in rather inclined to be "meh" on it (Obama-era politics; corny delivery of rapping in the bits I'd heard), but the performers here did a really good job of making the show their own. They genuinely had style and flow, and rarely had that after-school special rhythm. 😂

The politics of a musical doing this race switcheroo are still what they are. Few bits were more jarring than these folks of color singing about abolition (historically accurate, tbf). 😬


There are some strong Kanye influences in both the musical writing and performance, which I didn't expect. Even the politics of that era of Kanye, I guess. 🤔

Anyway, I'm glad I finally got to see it. Bryson Bruce absolutely crushed it as Hamilton, and Will T. Travis was such a good Jefferson.
