Tonight was Hamilton night for me, x2. Finally, unable to see it (live, unrecorded) on Broadway, and unable to see any play now anywhere in New York (or movie, or indoor restaurant/bar/cafe).... I saw Hamilton, on stage, on Broadway. On Disney+.
I also recently got to visit with Alexander Hamilton himself, and his wife, Eliza.
And afterwards I read this article/review
I had "coincidentally" found the other day, amid some buzz about the airing on Disney of the play, filmed at the height of its acclaim, and slated to be released in movie theaters a year from now. Briefly, this is a very good review, I say grudgingly, as there's what some might see as a lot of nitpicking about things like the camera angles, and also some rather obscure historical details, as well as some wishes/complaints/observations about the symbolism of the cast, and the film flaws.
In the end he redeems himself (the reviewer, who in general I would not find myself reviewing), the author acknowledges it a bit.
And I can see where he comes from, and totally concur: the audience reaction to a line about "immigrants" (our origin!) is spot on.
He's also right about times having changed (as was Dylan) and thus our "context and perspective" has shifted along with "reality".
Enjoy, Hamilton, and (US, possibly UK) history fans...
