#20 Hamilton - yes, the Hamilton! On Broadway! Planned eight months in advance as my surprise 30th birthday present! What an amazing, clever, witty show. I didn't listen to the soundtrack before seeing the show, so I was only familiar with the opening number. We were in the fourth row, technically in restricted view seats as they were very far left, but still a great view. I saw the standby Jevon McFerrin (pictured) as Hamilton - I had been looking forward to Javier Munoz but McFerrin did not disappoint at all. Mandy Gonzales was amazing as Angelica in one of my favourite numbers, "Satisfied". I loved In the Heights before this show but none of the female characters on that show got to rap so it's very special that Angelica does! Daniel Breaker has a very smooth voice as Aaron Burr and I loved "The Room Where it Happens" and "Wait for It". Also Hamilton's rapping! Ten Duel Commandments! History Has Its Eyes On You! The Cabinet Battles! King George's numbers!
I just want to see it again, but will have to settle for listening to the soundtrack, the mixtape, the parodies etc.
