Re: What are you currently listening to?

I guess it's just me, but I have only been seeing "How does this work" lines under blank spaces instead of youtube videos on EF lately.

I tried to get tickets in NY, tried the lotto every visit, but no luck. (When did ticket scalping become a quasi-legit 'secondary market'? For shame.) I would have given anything to have seen the original broadway cast. Instead I play the album incessantly. Utter brilliance.

I do have tickets for the Chicago production, though. (Does the happy dance to the tune of 'The Room Where It Happens'.)

I understand Hamilton is coming to London, I'd love to see it there as well. I wonder how it will be received by a British audience?

Did I mention that I am slightly obsessed with Hamilton?

As Lin Manuel Miranda introduced it at a White House Poetry jam while he was still writing the score: ‘A musical about a man whose life embodies hip-hop… American’s first treasury secretary, Alexander Hamilton.’

And everybody, the Obamas included, laughed somewhat nervously…

That rather improbable premise has become the most sought after ticket on Broadway, gathering up pretty much every major award going.

—-

It would not be hyperbole to say that ‘Hamilton’ has transformed theater, and now caught the imagination of the country. I am in awe - and I don’t generally like, or even listen to hip hop. But 'Hamilton' is an enthralling story, brilliant music, lyrics and (from the clips I have seen) choreography. I absolutely love this album - and am chomping at the bit to finally see it on stage.

There are not many legit clips out there, but to whet your appetite:

Performed at the Grammy awards, original Broadway cast in the opening number, ‘Alexander Hamilton’
http://www.theverge.com/2016/2/15/11...a-grammys-2016

Performed at the Tony awards, original Broadway cast in ‘The Battle of Yorktown'

Re: What are you currently listening to?

The problem is that youtube recently switched from http-protocol to https. For the time being, posters should post the full link as if were any other non-youtube link, like

Pretty funny, and serious ear-worm material.

The sweet old dear in front of me at the bakery this morning looked at me quite askance - then I realized I was singing 'Holy sh*t, you've got to vote'...

And speaking of 'Get Out The Vote PSAs', following on my Hamilton obsession:
