“Hamilton” is endlessly productive of terrific side art and historical research

“Hamilton” by Lin-Manuel Miranda doesn’t sound like a show a lot of people would want to see — a rap musical about Alexander Hamilton, the founding father on the the $10 bill. But just GO and you’ll be amazed. I’ve been to many shows over the years and it’s still the best, overall, I’ve ever seen.

A friend gave me a link to a YouTube video which reminded me of my joy and pleasure in the show. If you’ve been or are thinking of going or have never even heard of the show, check these out:

This doesn’t even begin to describe the depth of entertainment linked in some way to “Hamilton” itself which began at the Public Theatre, moved to Broadway, and now has productions in a number of locations. For example, “Spamilton” is a spoof off-off-Broadway production that makes fun of the show. It’s endless.
