The Proverbial Room Where It Happens – Part Two

A couple years ago we saw “Hamilton” in Los Angeles at the legendary Pantages Theater. Then we had tickets to see it again last year, but there was that whole pandemic, quarantine thing

Now we’re all vaxxed and masked (to their credit, they seem to be very aggressive about enforcing that at the Pantages) and the touring cast is back, so it’s our turn to see it again.

The first time we saw it I knew of the hype and the awards and the hubbub – but I had not yet ever listened to the music or gotten caught up in the mania. I had doubts…

Then I saw it.

Oh!! My!! God!! (As they say.)

Now, having seen the Disney production of the live version a dozen or so times, not to mention having listened to the album AT LEAST 100-200 times (no BS, at least once a week for a couple of years), I’m anxious to see how different the viewing experience is this time.

Damn, forgot tissues! We’ll see how absorbent this sweater is, I guess.

    Ah, but have you seen the various parodies? I’m fond of the Star Wars one (I started to write one, then realized that others had already done it, and better.)

  2. There are a few musicals of the early 2000/2010s I haven’t seen and want to – this, Avenue Q, and something else spring to mind. Now I’m settled I might save up for a trip to London when/if they come back, but with the prices they charge these days, I don’t know whether my mortgage company will cough up.
    Glad you enjoyed it!
