Having never listened to the soundtrack album, and having never attended a performance of the play, I was introduced to Hamilton through the Disney+ movie of the original production.

Instead of posting a review here, I am saving my response for the Looking Closer Specialists, that lovely community of readers who have chosen to show some appreciation for my work by making a donation — small or large — to help cover the costs of this site.

You can do that too and participate in our frequent conversations about movies, music, and more in that private Facebook group. Join the Looking Closer Specialists! Read about this opportunity here.
