Omg I'm so sorry that I haven't responded to this but YES #YAYHAMLET. Hamilton is my biggest obsession right now!!!!! And don't kill me but I actually saw it last January? It was my Christmas present, my mom told me that she bought tickets like immediately after they first went up last summer. It was absolutely incredible, there so many staging choices that made the score even better that I don't want to spoil, and all of the actors were so friendly at the stage door! LMM and Phillipa Soo (aka two of my biggest faves in the cast) were the only ones who didn't come out and I was upset but there's always the Broadway Flea Market in September so hopefully I can bump into them there? I've been going for the past threee years to NYC.
My favorite songs change on a daily basis, but currently they are Satisfied, The Room Where It Happens, and Burn - three of the best storytelling songs in the show. I just sang and played Burn on the piano for a school showcase thing. Also Dear Theodosia and It's Quiet Uptown give me ALL THE FEELS. And okay honestly the entire score gives me so much life. YES THE SCHUYLER GEORGES VIDEO IS THE BEST THING. The casting was just spot on for that, of course Groffsauce would be Angelica, and then Brian D'arcy James as Eliza and Andrew Rannells as Peggy, just yes. Did you guys see the videos from the White House? And can we just talk about all the Ham4Hams??? My personal favorite is Oak Onaodowan (Hercules Mulligan/James Madison) singing "Defying Gravity" with a Mickey Mouse voice, he seems like such a tough guy but he is actually a cinnamon roll too good too pure for this world.
And now I will talk about the songs that you guys actually mentioned in this thread already lol. YES WAIT FOR IT. It's such a wonderful way to establish Burr's character, plus it's super catchy and sounds like it could actually be on the radio. Do you guys know Musicality? It's an acapella group from Chicago that's covered a bunch of Hamilton songs, Wait For It was one of their first covers and their soloist for it actually sounds so much like Leslie Odom, Jr., they're amazing please check them out! Idk, I like My Shot but it's not my favorite just because they keep singing it everywhere and there are lots of equally musically interesting songs in the show. Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story is one of my absolute favorite finales ever, from like the entirety of musical theatre canon. It just tells the message of the story so clearly and perfectly, and the way that Eliza ends it just takes my breath away. The way that Non-Stop ties so many songs from the first act together is also amazing! I also love What Did I Miss, a bunch of my friends don't like it and I'm just sitting here like they also don't like Farmer Refuted, but I actually love it, A. Ham is so sassy in that. Omg the beginning of Your Obedient Servant always just makes me stop right in my tracks and drop whatever I'm doing. LESLIE ODOM JR. IS INCREDIBLE, the way he conveys Burr's turbulent emotions in that and in The World Was Wide Enough is just unbelievable. And also You'll Be Back is such a great song, Groffsauce's interpretation of it is hysterical and all of the references to the British Invasion in it are awesome.
I apologize for this overly long message but ugh. Hamilton. HAMILTON.
