HAMILTON!! I’ve never been much of a drinker, for the most part avoided banned substances, the theatre has been my drug of choice. Well last night I got a major fix. Lin-Manuel Miranda is a genius, he’s managed to take a relatively obscure historical figure and using contemporary music, witty and poignant lyrics make his journey completely current. The cast are astonishing, “King George” reminds me of a mixture of Trump and every hard-right Brexiteer politician, puffed-up and deluded. But the real star of the show is the story, if history had been this fascinating in school I might have gone to uni (well, OK, done A Levels). Politics, History, tangled love-life, you care about it all. If you notice I’m a bit taller (not difficult) it’s because I’m walking on air. Feet won’t touch the ground for a quite a while.
