‘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 ...

‘Hamilton’ Movie Coming in 2021; “Live Capture” of the Broadway Cast Was Shot in 2016

Listen to a Song Cut From ‘Moana’ and Sung by Two ‘Hamilton’ Stars

The best thing about Disney’s Moana is that it is unabashedly an old-school musical, with its unique setting and fantastical story adding a fresh flavor to an experience that is defined by incredible showstoppers. And like every musical ever conceived since the dawn of the form, not every track written for the film made it into the final cut. Thankfully, we live in an age of home video special features and even more thankfully, we live in an age where those special features arrive online in adv...

Perez Reviews: Amélie

Like Audrey Tautou's hair in the film, the new Amélie musical playing Los Angeles's Ahmanson theater and heading to Broadway in the spring, is cute. Charming goes a long way but without more it's not enough to ignite passion or excitement in theatergoers. The show's music, written by Daniel Messé is serviceable but lacks grandness. A lot of that probably had to do with the rather pedestrian musical direction from Kimberly Grigbsy. Better orchestrations could have lifted the songs a lot! More lif...

However, rather than having another princess who needs saving by a handsome, Disney is continuing their increased dedication to creating strong female characters for little girls to look up to while also delivering some diversity with their first South Pacific princess, voiced by newcomer Auli’i Cravalho. The first Moana trailer has arrived, and it gives us a taste of what’s in store for the title character...
