    This is so exciting! I wish they were doing "Room Where It Happens," but I guess the title number makes much more sense.

  • Hamilton  Jan 21 2016, 11:20:34 AM


    True house seats are NOT priced at premium prices, but because the show is in such demand, the producers and performers and creative staff have requests for their house seats stretching intro the summer and fall. They are unlikely to extend those benefits to the friends-of-friends-of-friends level.


    That said, there are a lot of untrustworthy people out there claiming that the tickets they are selling are "house seats," either to lend credibi

  • Anyone OVER 'Hamilton' without even seeing it?  Jan 21 2016, 10:05:01 AM


    We middle-aged white men know better than you.  You can't help it because you are a poor little POC.

    Or, perhaps, "elderly."

    Wonderful news.

    I believe we're talking about stringent social/political thoughts concerning a man who many find to be one of history's truly awful people, who (to re-state the idea) "helped foster a financial system that keeps most people of color powerless and poor in this country."

    I think Miranda is making a deeper statement about race and class in this country by NOT making the kind of "accusatory" or "satiric" statement you suggest, which would only have preachy, prosaic and drearily conventional.


    What he does with performers of color simply BEING the Founding Fathers is much more challenging and liberating than what you suggest.

    Ah, I see. He quoted Happy Hunting. LOL.

    And yet:
