The TWENTY: Hamilton

So there seem to be 3 camps of people when it comes to the Broadway hit Hamilton: An American Musical – Those who are obsessed with it, those who have friends who are obsessed – or they’ve kind of heard about it, but haven’t really checked it out, and those who are still in the dark. I’m Parker – I belong to that first group, and I’m here to clear up some of the mystery behind Hamilton’s popularity.

Maybe you’re trying to figure out who this Lin-Manuel Miranda guy is – he’s been popping up on The Tonight Show, Drunk History, Carpool Karaoke, Inside Amy Schumer – and EVERYONE SEEMS TO KNOW WHO HE IS. Because never in the history of Broadway theater has a musical crossed into the mainstream in the way that Hamilton has! Not even Cats, although it probably came the closest.

So, let’s start at the beginning – literally. This is the first song Lin wrote after reading an Alexander Hamilton biography by Ron Chernow. He took it to an open mic night at the White House in 2009, where he debuted it for President Obama and the First Lady – and sang all the roles himself.

SO MUCH HAMILTON behind this link!

So Chance and Barack have had an ongoing dance battle for the last few years? And we’re just finding out now? As great as it would be to watch that video over and over and over, maybe it’s better if we don’t?? That way we can believe it’s like this killer dance battle in the timeless classic, Breakin’.

Obama is obviously Turbo. Start it up at 1:35.

I would have played the final battle scene but I don’t want to ruin it for you.

I asked the Internet for good Bernie Sanders costume ideas, but all it came back with is this. Bonus! You’ve already got this wig on hand from that time you played Benjamin Franklin in a school play.

Now that I think about it, maybe just go as one of the Kardashians.

How hard is it to be president, honestly?? All you gotta do is figure out how to handle the budget, education, health care, military, environment, pro-lifers, pro-choicers, gun enthusiasts, anti-gun advocates, lobbyists, oil, Wall Street, Putin and North Korea…and throw a few parties.

Oh! and Kim Kardashian can work on a “Take-Care-Of-Your-Selfie” campaign…or something.

I may have left a few things out but we still have time to get it all figured out. More importantly, let’s start decorating The White House.
