With Hamilton on its way to Disney+, hardcore Hamilfans had a question about that PG-13 rating: What about the fucks?
On stage, Hamilton contains exactly three f-bombs, two of which had to be sacrificed to avoid an R rating, Lin-Manuel Miranda explained on Twitter. He even took it a step further and immediately quelled speculation about which fucks we’d have to give (up).
1. On July 3, you’re getting the whole show, every note & scene, & a 1-minute countdown clock during intermission (bathroom!)
2. But MPAA has a hard rule about language: more than 1 utterance of “Fuck” is an automatic R rating. We have 3 “Fucks” in our show. So…
…I literally gave two fucks so the kids could see it:
1. In Yorktown, there’s a mute over “I get the f___ back up again”
2. “Southern *record scratch*kin’ Democratic Republicans.”
You can sing whatEVER you like at home (even sync up the album)!

If you’re keeping track, that means the remaining “fuck” is but a “fuuuuu—” cut off in “Say No to This” (“You see, that was my wife who you decided to fuuu—”). Enjoy explaining that one to the kids!
Hamilton starts streaming July 3 on Disney+. [NOTE: there is no 7-day free trial for now.]
