Before traveling to NYC, I purchased a wide-angle lens at Pictureline. The sales clerk who helped me had seen Hamilton recently. He advised that I listen to the Hamilton soundtrack while reading the lyrics not once, but twice, before seeing the play. He assured me that this would enhance my experience. I took his advice to heart, and on the 4th of July, Hamilton blasted from my speakers. It seemed a fitting day to spend time with our Founding Fathers! And he was right; being familiar with the story made the experience magical.
Interested in a "behind-the-scenes look at Lin-Manuel Miranda's Broadway musical Hamilton"? I loved PBS's documentary, Hamilton's America: A Documentary Film.
