There is no doubt about it. Lin-Manuel Miranda’s 'Hamilton' musical has made Alexander Hamilton relevant again. Hamilton, the person, was at risk of being taking off of the $10 bill in an upcoming redesign. However, according to a recent tweet, the musical may have just saved the “ten-dollar founding father.”
Following Lady Gaga’s tribute to David Bowie this Monday, Bowie’s son Duncan Jones took to twitter to comment on the performance. Many have taken Duncan’s comment, the dictionary definition of gaga, to mean that he was unhappy with her tribute to the Star Man. Check out the tweet for yourself to decide.
In the middle of this divisive election season there is one thing that can unite us all. That is 'Hamilton.' The now Grammy Award winning musical is beloved by all but perhaps the most anti-American among us and even than you just know they secretly like it. Even known America hater and terrorist leader Cobra Commander was able to put his world conquest aside and snake a few tickets to the show. With the musical winning big at the Grammy Awards this Monday night, may we propose that Presidents Day be renamed Hamilton Day? Speaking of Presidents. Presidential hopeful, Hillary Clinton got into the action, tweeting her support for Hamilton after they won. At last we checked this message had not been deleted so we can assume she still stands by it.
Lin-Manuel Miranda loves musicals. He doesn’t just go see the shows and listen to the soundtracks, but he fully immerses himself into the story behind the story. Recently, Miranda announced that a history of 'Hamilton' the Broadway Show would be released. Now thanks to Twitter we are getting our first look at the new book 'Hamilton the Revolution.' The new book about how the hit show came to Broadway, will also feature lyrics for the shows songs. A complete score for the show will be published separately at a later time. .
