I don’t get it. Cultural appropriation is alive and well but Hamilton is played by a latino qnd there are tons of POC in the cast, presumably, portraying white people.
Also, did he have anything at all to do with slavery or was he assumed to be racist? If so, why isn’t this cancelled?
Edit: my wife just put it on. Laugh out loud! Let’s see how it is.
So far it seems like something the freshman at a peforming arts school would compose. Awesome if it were a bunch of 14 year olds, but would never think it were Broadway worthy.
Ok, the only good part so far was King George, who is played by a legit Broadway dude. LMM has no stage presence, and a weak voice.
Aaaaand it’s off. Wow. That was terrible. It completely lost me. I would have had no idea what they were talking about if the choruses weren’t hyper repetitive, three word chants. My 14 year old daughter is watching it in her room because she loves it, and I can see why. It’s geared towards a less mature crowd. Let’s face it, the only reason this got all the hype was because of the (shitty) rapping, and replacing ALL the white characters with POC.
