    The satisfied sequence live was crazy. The stage had spun a little bit prior to that but only in the way that made you think it was a treadmill basically (this is assuming you’re on the floor and can’t see the mechanism). Then during that sequence everybody freezes and starts rotating around her and it’s like WHAT THE FUUUUCK

    Definitely the most impressive part of the play when everything (choreography/lighting/etc) is factored in.

    Guns and ships to history has its eyes on you to Yorktown is a hot 3 song run and it pays off in the live.play even better.

    Yorktown specifically is one is wish they had more wide shots as the ensemble is really critical to that part of the play.

    In my relatively uniformed opinion Yorktown would make the best close to act 1, but then we lose the setup and What’d I Miss being a big act 2 open.
    But god damn Lafayette just sets it off in G+S. Such huge stage energy at that moment.

    Does anyone else have issues with the Disney+ streams in regards to the sound levels of the leads vs the orchestra and extras? Maybe I need to adjust my sound bar.

    Goldsberry is the best performer and Satisfied is the best song in this version. Which is very interesting because on the soundtrack and in the Chicago show, neither would've been in my top 5

    It's amazing when she sings at full volume 3
    Inches from someone else's face. That's gotta be such a weird thing to get accustomed to as a theater performer.

    I'll let yall check. There is a tipping point where this shit really loses all sense and becomes a nuace-devoid dogma. Feels like we are getting there.

    Seems like we are getting close (if you believe twitter, anyways) to:

    Nathaniel B Forrest = George Washington = Lin Manuel Miranda.

    Alexander Hamilton was complicit in a system that promoted and benefited from slavery. He took part in the slave trade in the Caribbean and later married a woman whose family owned slaves. Hamilton personally bought and sold slaves for his wife's family.

    He didn’t. That doesn’t absolve him of participating in and profiting from the slave trade. He bought and sold slaves for the Schuylers

    i don’t think we need to cancel Hamilton but it doesn’t mean we can’t acknowledge the the bad parts of his legacy.

    Seems to be correct.

    In his younger years he ran a branch of business operations for a company that operated in sugar and slave trade. He also backed a few Federalist candidates who were slave owners for President. In addition to the aforementioned buying and selling of slaves for his in-laws.

    Watching this in the background this AM...

    One thing I would be interest in...did LMM write this knowing who would be able to pull it off? Like, did he know Daveed could deliver this concept during the 7 years he was working on it? The style and lyrics are so ambitious, he had to be confident it could be performed to this level. I guess this goes to the depth of theater but I can just see the casting call "yeah we need very animated guy who can rap and play and wild rendition of Thomas Jefferson....oh actually I need that same guy to do the same thing with differing degrees of a French accent and language"

    So cancel the musical that mentions multiple times the historical characters participated in slavery and that the nation as a whole has failed people of color. Fuck outta here.

    There's a YouTube video of him in like 2009 at an Obama poetry reading event

    He rapped the opening song. Sounds pretty close to the musical one. But he did phrase it as a rap 'concept album' he was working on.

    We watched it at my cousins house and they had bought a surround sound system specifically for watching it. I’ll be damned if I haven’t just done the same thing for the second viewing tonight. And the subwoofer goes BOOM.

    Believe Daveed started working on the project directly with LMM in 2012, so pretty early on/halfway into the preparation.

    Yeah he was part of the Vassar workshop I believe. Odom saw it then and I think only 1 other was part of that.
