“Hamilton” in SF

Last Friday night, I watched “Hamilton” in SF at the Orpheum Theatre, and it was brilliant!!

The show was around three hours, with a 15-minute intermission. I think I cried once or twice, that’s how good it was. Even if it wasn’t the original cast, the National Tour cast executed the musical wonderfully, and honestly, I don’t care that it wasn’t the original cast, because they sang and rapped and danced as well as them.

My rating is definitely a 10/10 for this show, and I strongly urge you to go watch it… like ASAP!!!!

After the show, I met some of the cast members, and I was sooooooooo happy, ahaaahah. I met and talked to Rubén J. Carbajal (John Laurens/Philip Hamilton), Jordan Donica (Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson), Joshua Henry (Aaron Burr), Isaiah Johnson (George Washington), Michael Luwoye (Alexander Hamilton), Mathenee Treco (Hercules Mulligan/James Madison), Ryan Alvarado (King George III), Sabrina Imamura (ensemble), and Desmond Nunn (General Lee/ensemble). They were all extremely nice and friendly, and very genuine, solid, people, who weren’t fazed by their status.

Here’s a picture of one of the playbills I got signed by the above:

I hope that you find time to check out this musical, too!!! If you can’t, listen to the soundtrack at least, it’s FIRE (“Guns and Ships”, “Cabinet Battle #1”, and “The Schuyler Sisters” are my personal faves).
