Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply!
Ugg writes: Have you seen Hamilton, the Musical? I did in Chicago last year. My wife loved it as did almost anyone else I know that has seen it. I did not care for it at all. It was historically inaccurate but most plays, movies shows etc are, poetic license to entertain. To me the entire thing seemed forced as in pushing through a mold. It was lively, loud, lots of dancing and singing. But and this is funny I don’t have a clear recollection of it, unlike Riverdance of a few years earlier which was also lively, loud lots of dancing and singing. Anybody else see it and have any comments?
My reply: I dislike musicals almost as much as I dislike Hamilton. The idea of combing the two is for me extremely unpalatable, even more so given that – as I gather – this pay is an homage to that creep.
Hamilton in my mind is more egregious a traitor than Benedict Arnold – who was arguably more above-board. Hamilton sold out the American people from within, while pretending to be an avatar of liberty. The man was brilliantly despicable, a kind of Lenin in breeches. He, like Ilyich, knew how to use language to get what he wanted. Also like Ilyich, Hamilton was an opportunist and a suck-up when necessary to advance his cause and brutal to those at his mercy. A truly awful creature and the prospect of watching an emulator dance and sing makes me almost physically ill.
I’d much rather watch Springtime for Hitler. That was at least funny.
