My Obsession with Hamilton

Hello!

So recently I’ve been quite obsessed with Hamilton the musical. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then seriously, under what rock have you been living?

For those of you that don’t know, I’m gonna give you a brief description. This musical tells the story of Alexander Hamilton, one of the founding fathers of America. It tells  the story of those involved  in the American Revolution and the hard times that came afterward. Now, what makes Hamilton so different from other broadway musicals is the way that the author, Lin-manuel Miranda, decided to tell the story. He incorporated rap through the play, which is very different from other broadway shows.

You may be asking yourself why I love this so much. You see, Hamilton has inspired me to do a lot of things. Everything about it is amazing. Starting with the cast. Lin explained that the reason there are so many different ethnicities is to demonstrate how is the America that we live in now.

But everything from the genius music, the lyrics, the incorporation of rap,  to the way the story is told is fascinating. It is raw, emotional and very inspiring.  I haven’t had the opportunity to see it but from listening to the soundtrack I can assure you that you will laugh, cry, be surprised and feel all of the emotions that Hamilton can give you.
