The most talked about musical in Broadway is “Hamilton”, based on the book “Hamilton”, by Lin- Manuel Miranda. “Hamilton is the story of the unlikely Founding Father determined to make his mark on the new nation as hungry and ambitious as he is. From bastard orphan to Washington’s right-hand man, rebel to war hero, a loving husband caught in the country’s first sex scandal, to the Treasury head who made an untrusting world believe in the American economy. George Washington, Eliza Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson and Hamilton’s lifelong friend/foil Aaron Burr all make their mark in this astonishing new musical exploration of a political mastermind”(Broadway). This play is run in the Richard Rogers Theater in New York City and is about three hours long. It takes months to get a ticket to this play. This play is the most talked musical since in 2016 and it received 16 Tony nominations, but they won 11.
Moulin Rouge on Broadway
Lights, camera, action! Moulin Rouge takes over the cities with flashing lights and carefully choreographed dance moves. I was fortunate enough to see the show in Portland, OR, and man – it did not disappoint one bit. I honestly left without words. The singing and the storyline left me in awe.
