It’s no secret that Hamilton on Broadway is a hot ticket. Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 5 years, you’ll know that Hamilton is a musical that incorporates rap, hip-hop, and R&B and takes the historical story of founding father, Alexander Hamilton, incorporating a uniquely modern twist. It plays with the themes of loyalty, courage and diversity, all while weaving in the incredible political dynamic of the time between the motherland “England” and the newly rising America. In spite of it being freely available via the Disney streaming app, the appeal of the live experience is unlikely to drive crowds away. In fact, demand is likely to increase, making tickets even harder to come by.
