‘Hamilton’ Review: Filmed Version of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Musical is Somehow Both Miraculous and Slightly Underwhelming

Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s hip-hop musical Hamilton is an unqualified masterpiece: a once-in-a-generation combination of brilliant writing, indelible performances, and spectacular music that became a genuine pop culture phenomenon and crossed over into the mainstream. So it feels strange to say that director Thomas Kail‘s filmed version of Hamilton, which was shot with the original cast at the height of the show’s fame in 2016 and which debuts on Disney+ this Friday, left me slightly underwhelmed. As...

How the ‘Hamilton’ Movie Gives Disney+ Viewers a “Snapshot” of the Show at Its Height

The original cast of Hamilton remembers being very tired in June of 2016. They were a month away from taking their final bow after nearly a year of performing eight shows a week, to critical acclaim and astronomical popularity. Creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda was in the middle of writing the songs for Disney’s upcoming animated film Moana. And the cast and crew had taken on the seemingly impossible task of filming their show for a feature film that had no distributor and no studio over the ...

Please vote!

American friends! A few thoughts on the election, from a fellow citizen-person! First, PLEASE VOTE. If you think your voice doesn’t count, or wondering if it’s worth the time…IT IS. Our representative democracy only works when folks engage their voice in the one platform that truly matters: Voting. Almost half of eligible Americans didn’t vote in the last election. Perhaps it was that the two candidates left them uninspired. Perhaps they felt the choice wouldn’t matter. Whate...

‘Saga’ Creators Still Say No Movie, But a Lin-Manuel Miranda Musical? Sure!

For a comic series that will not be adapted into a film or television show at any point in the near future, I sure have written many words about Saga on this film and television website. Perhaps it’s because Saga, written by Brian K. Vaughan and illustrated by Fiona Staples, is one of the best comics I’ve ever read. Maybe it’s because I’m just tickled by two comic creators deliberately shunning the fat paycheck that would come with selling the rights. Eh, it’s both! But now, Vaughan and Staples...
