Of course, we’ve both been following Lin-Manuel Miranda’s smash Broadway hit, Hamilton (do they still say “smash Broadway hit?”). This week the live stream of the cast recording was live streaming on NPR – so naturally, we posted a track-by-track reaction of our favorite uses of foreshadowing, Shakespeare references, and Leslie Odom Jr’s gorgeous voice.
- It probably won’t be up for long, so run-don’t-walk over to NPR’s live stream of the Hamilton recording while you still can!
- You know longer have to play guessing games with the lyrics – the Miranda-approved lyrics are online, and we’ll be playing catch the reference for weeks. Maybe another post is in order?
- The digital version of the cast recording became available on iTunes yesterday. You guys buying it now, or waiting for the CD?
- There’s a fantastic interview with Phillipa Soo over at Refinery 29 – a whole lot more of us are absolutely crazy about her after listening to the recording.
- And here’s a NYT piece about the Hamilton actresses visiting one of the Schuyler family’s houses.
