    A few years ago DelapThrows got me a shirt with this on it for part of TMB secret Santa.



    I’ve worn it so much that the words are pretty faded now :beaver:

    How can they forget one of the best lines?

    I mean you gotta put some thought into the letter but the sooner the better to get your right hand man back.

    Not the most lyrically creative, but great delivery.

    Btw I can kill this whole song. Sometimes I do it all, sometimes I’m a purist and leave out George’s lines.

    Hamilton doesn't hesitate
    He exhibits no restraint
    He takes and he takes and he takes
    And he keeps winning anyway
    He changes the game
    He plays and he raises the stakes
    And if there’s a reason
    He seems to thrive when so few survive,
    Then God damnit...I’m willing to...

    WAIT FOR IT

    But seriously, no love for the Saratoga campaign? The traitorous Ben Arnold won that shit that led to the French joining in the campaign. Gates on his horse claiming a false flag. SMDH. Americas greatest traitor also, their greatest hero. What a life:

    Lee was a shitbag, but this is an awesome quote of his

    “The strongest proof of a good heart,” he said, “is to love dogs and dislike mankind.” ”

    A bit off topic here, but I was reading something earlier and found out that In The Heights is being turned into a movie, set to be released in June 2021. It got me to listening to the soundtrack, and there are some really good songs on it. This is one of my favorites.

    Also, it trips me out every time I hear this song on a playlist or on Sirius that Mandy Patinkin is singing it. This guy just doesn't scream Broadway musical to me.

    Yep. He was the original Sonny in the broadway production of In The Heights and then played Usnavi in DC at the Kennedy Center. I think he's really good in that role.

    Hot take (but one I think is true): Hamilton is more genius than In the Heights (I mean, making founding fathers into a hip hop musical is insane), but In the Heights is a better show than Hamilton.

    edited to add - there are some bootleg recordings of the reunion concert on youtube.

    They are great.

    For example:

    I mean in the traditional musical sense, I agree. In the Heights is a fantastic traditional Broadway musical and a great show, but comparing the two is a bit like comparing Schindler's List to Star Wars. Both are highly entertaining Broadway productions, but Hamilton completely transformed the way the public thinks about musical theater, and on a technical level, the stage design, construction and how it was married with the choreography was a game changer.
