Smashin' every expectation
24 January 2018
From the moment you open this work, the book and story of the musical Hamilton, you know you are about to read quality. I could go on and on about the beautiful writing but anyone who knows anything about me or Hamilton knows that the passion will just pour out.
Each chapter of the behind the scenes story is full of the rich exciting creativity that you expect from any of Lin-Manuel Miranda's projects - the co-author Jeremy McCarter clearly shares the wonder for the show that pours out of every page, but the surprising thing is that every footnote, written by Miranda, alongside the lyrics are also filled with exuberant joy.
I have listened to the cast CD too many times to count but I know that the next time will be better just for know we long the sheer amount of work that went into this phenomenon.
Every action really is an act of creation.
