The new Weimerica Weekly is up at Social Matter. This week's episode is about the Broadway musical smash Hamilton. Why is it a success? What does it reveal? Is this all a 3rd grade social studies project?
You can hear all of that, but allow me to mention something peculiar about the show. The lead, Lin Manual-Miranda, is actually the weakest vocal and dance talent in the show. One has to wonder if he pulled a Stallone and secured the lead for himself because he knew it would be a success, therefore launching his career.
After listening to the songs, I fully expected a rip off of Snoop Dogg with the line, "He is I, I is him, slim with the tri-point brim, what's my mutherfuckin name?" Alexander Hammmmmmmiltonnnnn.
