    Thanks for the reminder, finally got in a bit ago but could only find limited view seats near the front so those will have to suffice. Wife and I will make the trip up that weekend

    There aren’t any Hamilton Avatars on Disney+. That’s disappointing. Pumba it is.

    Ok so that was pretty cool. Really enjoyed it. Pros and cons to having listened to soundtrack and/or watched the show a thousand times. Pro was I could follow the show and watch the things going on on the side and background and not have to follow everything the stars were doing and i could still keep up with the story. The negative was, while the cast was very good, they just weren't what I knew and there was no way they could live up to that standard. The guy playing LMM was probably a better singer but he just wasn't what I knew. Overall was awesome though and we'll probably see it again in the future somewhere else.

    Between work and some personal stuff, the last month has been shitty and super stressful. Watching on Disney+. This is a good mood booster

    Wife and I saw the night show in Denver yesterday. Donald Webber crushed it as Burr, and the cast was very strong overall. A few of them seemed to start out slow but really built up into the performance and were great. When I bought the tickets, all I could get were the very front row with “limited view”, and we were fairly blocked from the far left of the stage, but it didn’t inhibit the experience. The asshole behind me however did, with his constant bitching and kicking my seat. Luckily they didn’t come back after intermission

    Wife and I are big fans and once watched a video of Fallon, the Roots, and the original cast doing Helpless with our 3 year old daughter present. She now asks to watch “I do, I do” at least twice a day.

    Quick thoughts:
    Marcus Choi, once again great as GW.
    They seem to have ‘film-washed’ the cast for the most part. Hard to say for sure, given I have a live sample size of 2. What I mean by this is that everyone (GW being the exception) was cast and made up to match to the filmed version. Ethnicities, styling, mannerisms. Seems like too big of a coincidence that they just happened to do it that way. The last show I saw was the same company and the people and looks were pretty different from the broadway/film cast. Examples:
    Hamilton - last time, black guy, midsized afro, no beard. This time the person had the LMM hair and goatee. His headshot is bald.
    Burr - last time, nik Walker in a full beard. This time bald and clean shaven LOJ lookalike.
    Sisters - last time, all three black women. This time, Eliza was Asian. Hairstyles matched the movie as well.
    MdL/TJ- last time, tight clipped hair. This time he had long hair.
    Even the bullet person had the same top curl style. Lawrence, Mulligan, king all way closer to the film performers.
    Hard to say with 100% certainty, but it feels like they are doing it purposely.

    I need you guys to be honest with me.
    I went once in 2018.
    I bought tickets at on-sale and went a week and a half ago, last Tuesday.
    I won Ham4Ham tickets for tonight (going) last Thursday.
    My Wife won Ham4Ham tickets for next Friday today.

    is this excessive?

    I enjoy attending occasional musicals with my wife. Live performances are great, but I don't enjoy them enough that I listen to soundtracks or watch film adaptations of shows I've not seen. Point being, while I knew the hype and the concept behind the show (and obviously the history), I went into my first viewing of the touring show last night completely new to the music and the approach to each respective historical character.

    Mind. Blown.

    I absolutely loved it and will probably be jumping from ear worm to ear worm for weeks. I'll probably fire up the the soundtrack at work some time today, too.

    If you have Disney+, I prefer turning it on rather than the soundtrack. I often turn it on in the background while I work. I won't watch it, I just prefer the audio from it.

    I don't, currently. Boys are 16 &17 and the family in general is not into enough Disney content, including Star Wars, etc. Plus, we get ESPN through Sling, though with limited access (only one viewing device at a time). But now between this and the new Hocus Pocus, I think I'm going to have the ammunition to talk the wife into it.
