FYI—HAMILTON! Drops tomorrow on Disney+


Recommended Posts

Anyone else as psyched as we are to download and watch? I couldn’t take my peeps to the live show but the original cast on film is great too.

Let's see...It's ORIGINAL, something that's rare in musical theater these days. So much is merely a riff on Rogers and Hammerstein, Gershwin, Sondheim, Lerner and Lowe. The use of rap music/beat

I highly recommend the genius.com annotated Hamilton lyrics.  It goes into a lot of information about both history and musical influences.  For instance, when Burr says, "Grandfather was a fire and br

Y’all: Lin-Manuel Miranda confirmed that 'Hamilton' will be censoredon Disney Plus: 'I literally gave two f-cks so the kids could see it . . . “

I haven't seen it yet---excited to finally see it this weekend.


I hope you’re used to speedy hip hop lyrics! It’s not exactly Twista fast but you gotta have your listening ears on! The lyrical battles are epic.

I've seen clips. I think I can keep pace. I just couldn't afford $$$ tickets. They started at close to $300 each here and went up from there. My kids like to eat, iykwim.

We saw it in Chicago, and I can't wait to see it with the original cast!  The Chicago cast did a nice job, but I didn't really "believe" Hamilton.  I want to see Lin-Manuel Miranda's version.

Oh, I know. I had family tix through a season pass (way cheaper) but couldn’t use them b/c we moved out of the area. Still sad about that. We love live shows. In the end, DH took me locally for Christmas last year.

In our version it was Burr that I found unconvincing.

I have been waiting. I was considering taking myself for my bday this year, but then Covid happened. 🙄

 

You best not log in all at once, I don't want to see this.... *LOL*

If I can't hear it tomorrow night after DS goes to bed because people are using illegal fireworks around here, I am going to be so, so, so mad.

I had the same thought!

I don't think shushing the neighborhood will help!

Looking forward to it. We saw it when it came here on tour last summer (almost exactly a year ago, in fact). DD has the whole thing memorized (and I have the vocal score on my shelf). We bought the full season to get tickets-and by the time the show got here, the season tickets for all three of us cost about the same as a single seat unless you won the lottery.

We are so excited!

I need some tech advice... Our internet will be glitchy I'm sure. Is there a way to download and watch later on a MacBook Air? I don't see an option like what is available for ios devices.

Usually we use an hdmi cable to watch from the laptop to the tv if that matters.

I don't want our experience ruined by the buffering circle of death.

We are ready here!  So excited!  Ds saw it in London, but the rest of us haven’t. The kids have all the songs memorized and have been breaking out in song randomly in preparation.

This was our experience too. I don't regret the season passes b/c we saw some awesome shows but, yeah, the season passes are what made Hamilton affordable--monthly payments too!

Yes! You can download it and watch it offline!

Such a big fan! Saw it in Chicago and then got tickets for my Christmas present (like my only real present) for when it came to Atlanta but Covid happened. I listen to the soundtrack about once a week - it is a great workout soundtrack! So excited!!!

We signed up for Disney+ this past weekend, not just for Hamilton, but it was the big motivator. Dd and Dh saw it last year in San Francisco. We're all looking forward to seeing the original production.

Is it only available *on* the 3rd, *for* the 3rd -- or is it beginning to be available *from* the 3rd for the next while?

It should be up for awhile.  So far, Disney plus hasn’t been one to put a movie up for just a month.

I know what I'm (hoping) to do tomorrow while DH is at work!  (he is actually way more musical than I am, but he hates musicals...I married him anyway.)  🙂

Really looking forward to this. 🥳

We are so excited!  My son and I saw it unexpectedly in London last summer.  We weren’t going to see a play, but we saw the marquee coming out of the train station and my son knew it would drive his sister crazy if he saw it first.  Probably should have previewed it before seeing it with a 13yo boy, but oh well. It was tough to keep up with the lyrics, but the experience was amazing.  We were both on the edge of our seats the whole time.  My 17yo daughter now has it memorized. When we realized it was coming out I told her she had to finish up economics before she could watch.  The 7yo has prohibited everyone from singing or listening to anything Hamilton related for the last month so the drought ends tomorrow and she plans to be done with economics tomorrow...we can’t wait 😊

I didn’t know what to expect walking into the theatre, but it was unlike anything else I have ever seen.  It seems tough to put Hamilton and the Sound of Music into the same bucket even though I love them both.

we. cannot. wait.

Feels like we've been waiting/hoping for this for a decade!!!! So freaking excited!!!

We've all seen it at the theatre at least once - but I pretty much sobbed through the entire thing - it was such a profound experience and I apparently just couldn't handle all those emotions. 😭  lol And when his son died? O.M.G. I could not cope. 😭

The kids are hoping I can hold my crap together since we'll just be watching it at home this time. 😅 But, getting to see the ORIGINAL CAST? Yeah. I don't think the odds are in their favor. 😆

Aww enjoy everyone!  We don’t have Disney and I’ve seen it twice on stage so can’t justify it just for Hamilton.   We actually in theory have touring show tix for later 2021 too with Broadway season tix here.    Go away Covid!   
 

I saw Chicago and the first touring company.  Both my son and I enjoyed the touring show more and thought that cast had more energy.  Lin Manuel  Miranda is not a singer, so I’ve never had special need to see/hear him.  Sat in on a few too many voice lessons.  😂   It’s ruined a number of things for me.

My watch party is over, and what a splendid afternoon it was. I’ve never seen the show live but am very familiar with the soundtrack. So it filled in some gaps for me. My niece, who has the soundtrack memorized, was part of the watch party. She said there was one extra song. I can’t remember what it was (sorry) but I think Laurens was singing it.

I will be floating for the rest of the day, and that is a feeling that has been very rare since mid-March. What a gift Lin-Manuel Miranda has given us.

I plan to watch it again this weekend with DH and DS. 

PS You can only download with the app not through a browser. I had to stream but had no problems.

I watched it first thing this morning but am watching it again now with my peeps. Groff voiced King George III at my local show and was even funnier, mincing steps and all, but still great on film!

I may be the only person in the US who has never seen anything from the musical, never heard the songs. Oddly, I have zero interest in it. We have Disney, tho, so maybe I’ll try it.

 
I love musical theater and have taken my peeps as often as I could since they were small. My SIL lives in NYC and entices them to visit with show tix, lol. This is as good as it gets without being there. Turn the volume up, watch on your biggest screen in HD, and make sure it’s dark!

We've been watching this afternoon.  Wow.  So much better with Lin-Manuel Miranda!  

I'm glad it's out now.  I hope some of the people who don't know anything about US history will learn something from it.

This was me, too. I'm halfway through so far, because my BFF was horrified that I knew nothing of it. Will finish the rest after the boys go to bed.

I know almost nothing....except that my friends raved bout it.  I have watched less than 2 hours of TV since the shit down in March but this might be worth it.

Can anyone tell me if it is edited on Disney+?  We are big musical people but have not seen this specifically due to language and content.

One F is edited out completely (they silence that small part of the song), one F is trailed off so you don't hear the whole word.  As a Christian, I thought the song with his mistress was incredibly well done and had no problem watching with my DS.  Other words (s---, wh---, etc) are still there.

I was worried I wouldn’t love it as much on the tv but it’s still so awesome! We’ll probably watch it a few more times. ❤️

I stand corrected. 🤣
