Hamilton, an American Musical

No, I haven’t watched it in case you were wondering (yet!). However, I gathered that Hamilton might come to Austin in the next year or two and I will make sure to get tickets immediately, otherwise you know what happens to prices in the black market… Anyway, I remembered it due to the Greek Independence Day, March 25th. You guys are very privileged to learn history from this astonishing piece of art. It turns out that Hamilton was an awesome dude with ultra adventurous life apart from a founding father, federalist and first Secretary of the Treasury- who would have thought?! Trivia fact: the performance influenced public opinion so much that the plans to change the $10 bill with his figure were ultimately cancelled. For now I can only enjoy the music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda. If you haven’t heard about it at this point:

a) you think that musicals are lame

b) you live outside the US or in a cave

c) you confuse F1 with theater

d) you miss out one of the most awarded and critically acclaimed Broadway Shows

In any event, to get a taste or refresh your memory here are two of my favorite songs and beloved quotes from them:

“Get your education, don’t forget from whence you came, and
The world’s gonna know your name. What’s your name, man?”
Alexander Hamilton

I am not throwing away my shot
Hey yo, I’m just like my country
I’m young, scrappy and hungry
