Interesting that they include the live audience sounds in the trailer. My impression was this was filmed over several days with the original cast and no audience.

Living in Portland, scalpers emailed me wanting$350-$1050for front balcony seats to see the touring company in 2021. Disney+ wants $6.99 for one month. I think it's a no brainer - besides, I already used theirfree month to watch Encore, The Mandalorian and High School Musical: The Series.

Great. I paid $50 to see it at The Public with the original cast before they made song cuts.  I was informing people that might be looking for that option.

No doubt.  I also wouldn't read too much into the MPAA rating, since they are subjective to the biases of the rater. Since it's being rated for a streaming service (which actually is not a part of the MPAA's jurisdiction), they be even more relaxed with the rating, of they might be harsher. We'll know in two weeks.

Like most other shows that have had commercial releases, it was filmed over the course of several days, and then with an audience. Because if we’ve learned anything from months of streamed performances, a show without an audience is barely watchable.

We learned that from The Sound of Music Live! Although that one is barely watchable for other reasons, too.

According to Wikipedia, it was " edited together from three performances of Hamilton in June 2016... with the original principal Broadway cast members... combined with a few "setup shots" recorded without an audience present."

Betting it's more than "a few". Some of these pro-shot versions include insanely tight (sometimes handheld) shots followed by a wide shot showing no camera where there clearly would have been one in the previous shot. (I know they also use zooms, but it's easy to tell the difference).

Thanks for the info! I guess we won't have any way of knowing if the audience reactions are real or if they're just canned laughter or applause that was added later.

I thought all of it was filmed with an audience, and then they went back and did some pick ups and close ups without one

Is it? If that’s the price to pay for people to get to see it, does it really matter? Do we know yet if when it’s released for sale that it won’t be unedited?

And they’re muting two words that everyone knows are being said. Scenes aren’t being cut - this is only a big deal if you have nothing to worry over and want to make it a big deal.

Right? When was the last time we got a recording of a massively successful show while it's still showing on Broadway (sorta)? We're getting the whole thing, apparently in an incredible presentation they spent days doing, they got the original cast to record it, it's gonna be available for $7 which is probably cheaper than most movie theatres... and yet you're gonna cry over two f**cks?

I read your conversation with Lin about the taping and the significance of the taped performance of Into the Woods

This is like that, only if Into the Woods was the biggest hit on Broadway in decades, being released while it's still the most popular musical in the world.

Would I like to get an unadulterated version of the show at some point? Absolutely. Am I going to get too upset over two swear words that's on a streaming service my wife and children lobbied for me to get last winter - so I'm basically getting Hamilton for free? No. They're not cutting scenes or anything important to the story.

To the uninitiated, the missing language will seem like the "Sit down, John" line - already bleeped in the stage musical.

Okay....I'm going to be that person.  I was reading the BroadwayWorld article and twitter with Lin.  I found it funny that he and the article is not edited.  But when we use the same word in a post, the moderators (or their system) erases it.  Just bored.

Having just watched nearly all the MCU movies during quarantine, I can confirm that they, like Hamilton, have a few curtailed f-bombs. I recall at least one instance of an interrupted “fuuu-,” and I think one “mother-.”

Is it censorship? Yeah. Will it hurt the piece- probably not. Compare the OBC to the Mixtape- the censored MF hits harder and is funnier than the uncensored mixtape version.

The one person who said "Oh, it won't be five years" in regards to how long it would take to release the show must be kicking themselves right now.  (It was in the contest of it'll be more than five years.)  I mean, they were right in that it wasn't five years.  It was four years.

As for the swearing, they didn't use the Hercules Mulligan F-word during the Tony performance that year, and I don't recall anyone having that much of an issue with it.  And the record scratch over the one in Washington on Your Side actually sounds pretty cute, almost like an in-joke to the origins of the show as a concept album.  And we do still get the interrupted word in Say No to This, so if anyone absolutely needs cursing in this, you'll at least get that.

Besides, how could you not be excited with that trailer?  I got chills the second the song transitioned from the title song to Satisfied - and then watched it ten or twenty more times, and continued to get chills every time.  My birthday is July 5th, so this will be an AWESOME early birthday present.

"It's you." "It's me. Orpheus." "Eurydice..." *crying*

I just watched his interview on GMA this morning and he said they filmed with an audience Sunday matinee, then spent all Sunday night, all Monday, and Tuesday morning getting shots without an audience, then recorded the Tuesday night show with an audience.

it’s because everyone already knows what’s being said that makes it silly

i hope it will be released uncensored be it on blu-ray or maybe on hulu

Well, no. It doesn’t make it silly. It’s on a platform that doesn’t show R rated material and the MPAA would have given it that R rating. If you don’t want to watch it because of that, there is (and I hope I’m wrong) nobody with a gun to your head making you do so. When THE WOMEN was filmed for tv, they cut out Jennifer Tully’s butt when she came out of the bathtub but that was the price to pay to get the show filmed and aired and I’ve watched it continuously for years.

It ain’t a big deal.

I went through the Hamilton trailer shot by shot so you don’t have to.

Note: I was as specific as possible for when they are, but I’ll add more details if anybody can identify more moments. I tried to provide my reasoning for most of them, and for the ones I didn’t, it’s just because I remember that specific moment from seeing the show.

Please let me know anything I missed or got wrong. Thanks!

0:06 - Yorktown? The costumes are the main identifiers I saw. Also, the stage is backwards for some reason.

0:07 - Satisfied - “rewind” bit

0:08 - Room Where It Happens - the button at the end of the number

0:11 - Room Where It Happens - first chorus “No one really knows how the game is played”

0:16 - Past “Stay Alive Reprise-“ the costume identifies the time in the show, but there aren’t any glasses so there’s no other way to figure out what that shot is from.

0:18 - Non-Stop - the bit where everybody sings together and the staircase comes out.

0:20 - ??

0:21 - Hurricane

0:22 - Obedient Servant - glasses and clothes identify it.

0:23 - Washington On Your Side? I think that’s the only time Jefferson, Madison, and Burr are alone onstage.

0:24 - Say No To This - I don’t believe Mariah ever appears other than in that song.

0:25 - Washington On Your Side

0:26 - Non Stop - chorus immediately after “Hamilton wrote the other 51”

0:27 - Take A Break? I think that’s Angelica up on the left but I could be wrong.

0:29 - Alexander Hamilton - Hamilton is up on the catwalk and that’s the only time he’s up there.

0:31 - Schuyler Sisters

0:33 - Ten Duel Commandments

0:35 - Room Where It Happens?

0:36 - Yorktown

0:38 - Non Stop - when Angelica leaves for London. “Don’t forget to write”

0:39 - Yorktown - Hercules Mulligan’s bit

0:40 - Burn

0:40 (2) - Right Hand Man - final button

0:41 - Reynolds Pamphlet - the papers on the ground identify this number

0:41 (2) - ?? Obviously one of King George’s numbers but I don’t know which one. My guess would be You’ll Be Back because it’s the one with the most frilly costume for King George.

0:42 - ??

0:42 (2) - ??

0:43 - ??

0:44 - Aaron Burr, Sir - the rap in the Tavern

0:44 (2) - Guns And Ships

0:44 (3) - Alexander Hamilton. He only wears that costume for the opening number.
