Of course I’ve seen the show! I really like it!Uh, what? I assume you have never seen the show. They are out of time - both commenting about each other's eras and acknowledging they are currently in the 20th Century.
Perhaps you recognize those inspiring words from one of America's great writers.
No, Dr. Franklin, I don't recall writing anything like that.
Oh my, of course not.
They're from the pen of John Steinbeck here in the 20th century.
Why it seems he has nearly the same spirit as the founding fathers themselves.
Well, listen to the proud elder statesman.
Mr. Twain, pride is one of our national passions.
Even those who overcome it, are proud of their humility.
Easy now, I was born modest.
Fortunately, it wore off.
Dr. Franklin, as our genuine American antique, I suppose our story begins with you.
Do you think people know that the cats in cats aren't cats? Straight up pandering to cat lovers.If you think the average person walks out of that show thinking he was a white British citizen who legally moved from one British colony to another British colony, I have some mid-orchestra seats for tomorrow night's show to sell ya. And again, this is from someone who loves the show and has seen it multiple times. But that line is straight up pandering for the reaction.
What challenges are the same? If you are from Puerto Rico you have full access to enter and live in the US, no Visa or anything else required, so what is similar to other actual immigrants?I dunno. Is it really different from someone coming from Puerto Rico to one of the 50 states today for job opportunities? Yes, not a true "immigrant" but certainly involving some of the same challenges.
I don't know what you want from a drama. It's a piece of art that speaks broadly to hard work, patriotism (true patriotism, not flag-waving) , and love and loss while telling a story based on an imperfect man and the founding of our country. Its a story about a time of intense racism and slavery told by a diverse cast, which is pretty powerful.The musical is rife with historical inaccuracies. Do you want a list?
It doesn't? Apparently you haven't watched the show because you wouldn't have made that comment if you did.
Most of your comments seem to be misinformed which makes me believe that Hamilton is not inaccurate in the ways you believe.
In the words of Charles Emerson Winchester, "sir, I am so conservative that I make you look like a New Dealer," yet I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about when you claim that there's political bias in Hamilton. No, it's not historically precise, but the inaccuracies are for dramatic purposes, not political ones.Hall of Presidents isn't supposed to be a Broadway show. It's supposed to be an historical lesson.
We don't need more revisionist history from a person with a clear political bias and proclivity.
Hamilton is, for my money, as patriotic as The American Adventure or Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln. And again, I don't think I agree with Lin-Manuel Miranda on a single political issue.You have to love America to tell a positive story about America. Miranda's political affiliations clearly align with those who hate America.
VERY DIFFERENT! Most people from PR find it VERY offensive to be called an immigrant.
Not for nothing, but LMM himself has said that Hamilton's story intrigued him as an immigrant story, as it reminded him about his father's travails in coming from Puerto Rico.
