Disney+ is showing the full Broadway show.
Obviously I'm interested in history and Hamilton is an intriguing figure.
But I hate musicals.
Should I watch it? Opinions from those who have actually seen it would be especially appreciated.
Summed up, musicals are "actors who can sing", while opera is "singers who can act".
In that sense, as a former musician, I generally prefer opera.
That being said, I have heard some good reviews about Hamilton
from some of my friends who have seen it. I have a friend who lives in New York and spends a lot of time on Broadway, and another who went for her 21st birthday to the West End to see it. Both enjoyed it very much.
I have not seen it myself, and I cannot vouch for the historical accuracy, but as King George III's great-great-etc grandson, it would be interesting to see how he is portrayed.
By the way, I have seen where Alexander Hamilton was born on Nevis. To this day, Mount Misery/Liamuiga (on St. Kitts) is the only volcano I have ever summited.
