I’ve been obsessed with Hamilton for the past few months and I’m not even a huge musical fan, but this one, I just love it ?

It’s literally playing on my phone and in my head all day long. What most people don’t know though is that you can find anything about Hamilton – the musical – without going to Broadway and watch it. Or being in the US for that matter. One word: internet ?

Waiting for 2017 with #Hamilton ⭐

A post shared by lovelypages (@lovelypagesreviews) on

I got my first taste of Hamilton from the Carpool Karaoke, I had no idea what Hamilton was and even after that I still didn’t look it up.

And then I found an old – pre Hamilton – White House video in which Lin Manuel-Miranda performs “Alexander Hamilton” live for the first time for the POTUS and FLOTUS in a poetry jam.

Aaaaaand I was hooked!

History + rap = epic ⭐✨

After a quick google search I found the original cast recording that is available on Spotify and iTunes. If you are not familiar with Spotify, it’s an app that you sign up for, completely free although there’s a premium version too, and you have everything right there on your phone.

For the lyrics by the man himself go to genius.

There’s also a mixtape ?

But a little visual is needed, it’s a play after all and luckily there are a few performances from the cast.

And because we’re good people, good things happen to us; after you become totally obsessed with Hamilton, watch this – Emma and Lin-Manuel have an utterly fascinating interview and they even sort the Hamilton characters into HP houses ?

And for a bookish  twist, there’s a Hamilton book tag!

And that covers it, I could talk about Hamilton for hours, days, weeks, but I won’t. Go on now, watch everything, listen to the playlist and obsess over Hamilton!

  1. There was a PBS 90-min special on the making of Hamilton that showed much of the play and the background behind Lin-Manuel Miranda making it – almost as good as seeing the show too. Now, I expect it to be made into a movie pretty soon as the demand to see it is so huge.

  2. Oh yay, a fellow Hamilton fan 🙂 I’m not usually that much into musicals, but I became completely obsessed with Hamilton last year. It’s just so great <3 I must have watched those performance videos a hundred times already. I heard they have recorded the whole play with the original cast for a release on DVD, but they're not planning on releasing it anytime soon, so the live show will still get as many visits as possible… so even though it may take a while, it's still something to look forward to for those people (like me) who will probably never get to see it live 🙂
