Loved Hamilton


Last updated 1/31/2018 at 3:45pm

I read the “Hamilton” review (Jan. 18 issue of Village News) that suggested it was “a quirky play with an angry point of view” just before going to see it myself. I thoroughly enjoyed the play.

Rich with the history of our founding fathers, it brought them into a focus that made them personally available, “warts and all.” The creative genius of Lin-Manuel Miranda incorporates memorable melodies tucked in with the rap songs, themes that are cleverly developed along the way, moments both humorous (King George) and poignant (who lives, who dies, who tells our story), and thoroughly engaging and entertaining.

The fact that I had never developed a fondness for “Rap” before had absolutely zero negative impact on my ability to enjoy this musical. A road trip afterwards afforded me the opportunity to play the soundtrack clear through twice, thus filling in some of the gaps of understanding and indelibly imprinting on my brain some of the tunes and lyrics. I am grateful to my friend for inviting me to join her for this memorable experience.
