And speaking of Hamilton...
The guy is all over D.C.
At Mount Vernon
Bureau of Engraving and Printing
The National Portrait Gallery
Isn't it amazing someone who was unfairly not much more than a mental footnote in our history lessons is now a super star!
There are HAMILTON clubs at junior high and high schools. Kids are drawing fan art of Alexander Hamilton and other characters from the show. I've heard raps ala HAMILTON on a myriad of historical figures by students who are invested in learning history. A must read is the amazing YA novel, Alex and Eliza, A Love Story by Melissa De La Cruz on our hero and his love.
I've been listening to the score since the day it came out. I do a really good George III.
In a few weeks, I will FINALLY get to experience the show.
History has its eyes on you, indeed!
Any other HAMILTON aficionados out there? Have you seen it?
If you haven't seen the PBS special on the making of HAMILTON - you're in for a treat.
