At my urging, The Wife and I sat down and watched Hamilton on Disney+. This was one of those musicals I was pretty sure I was going to like. I was a bit off. I really liked it. The music is catchy with smart, witty lyrics. The acting performances are top notch. My absolute favorite performances were those of King George and Washington. Although, the play’s take on Jefferson is wonderfully opposed to traditional portrayals.
Don’t expect long discussions on political philosophy. Don’t expect to have discussions on national fiscal policy. This is about a complex and brilliant man who helped shape our founding documents and philosophy.
Now, if you don’t want to sit through over two and a half hours of musical, I have a TL;DR version for you.
