the king was hilarious. i saw the alternate and not their main guy but his MANNERISMS make all his songs better.
also i noticed: after jefferson’s “smells like new money dresses like fake royalty” line, hamilton only ever appears in black and white clothing
during burr’s “if you talk you’re gonna get shot” thing he’s LITERALLY handing out shots. you’re enabling them burr.
chris lee as lafayette/jefferson was AMAZING. hes constantly dancing around the stage, especially as jefferson. there are only so many people in the world who can pull off that costume
i was kinda surprised bc angelica’s such a influential character but she doesn’t actually appear onstage that often compared to others? give karen olivo more stage time.
SPEAKING OF ANGELICA at the end of Satisfied it sounded like she was almost crying. it was a really intense song she did great
everyone had their own little mannerisms/changes in how they sung the songs and it was really cool since i’m used to the soundtrack, obv. ari afsar as eliza was pretty unique but damn can she sing.
ok so the laurens interlude. i thought he was gonna be up on the balcony. he was like three feet away from hamilton. almost cried but not quite.
during the election of 1800 where hamilton is casting his vote burr and jefferson are on opposite sides of the stage, right at the edge. burr is smiling and very confident, jefferson looks like he’s preparing to suck it up and be vice president. but as soon as hamilton says “jefferson has my vote” jefferson starts grinning and dancing across the stage, burr looks shocked and almost like “what the fuck is going on here”
this has been mentioned but jefferson fucking gives the conductor a reynolds pamphlet
okay so chicago ‘peggy’ (samantha marie ware) has pretty poofy hair, but instead of the usual ponytail-to-loose transformation that lafayette/jeffers and laurens/phillip have, it’s braided a little on one side and somehow less poofy? how. how did they do that.
also the guy who played seabury (who was also the doctor for the duels as part of the ensemble) had an undercut with a really long part combed to the side and during farmer refuted everyone not talking kept making fun of it.
also seabury’s standing on the box and alex gets the fuck up their with him to argue and has to be pulled off by burr. amazing.
there are TWO ACTUAL GUYS in the cast named alexander and aaron. don’t leave them alone together (they did not play hamilton and burr)
i could FEEL THE MUSIC VIBRATING THROUGH THE THEATER DURING YORKTOWN. 10/10
i was so fucking lucky that my parents got these tickets
AN: Ok this is my first fic ever so comments are much appreciated! Un-beta’d as hell. Inspired by a line in a song from Guys and Dolls, which my school was doing when I started this fic. Fun fact: half of this was written in the wings of the booth while I was on spotlight. The song Kepler’s singing is this (but I liked our version better).
When you see a guy reach for stars in the sky you can bet that he’s doin’ it for some doll!
Call it sad call it funny, but it’s better than even money that the guy’s only doin’ it for some doll!
The Havana sky in the evening was sprinkled with stars and frosted with the slight suggestion of the Milky Way, but it’s beauty was surpassed by the scene on the beach. Underneath the expansive sky was a restaurant, or perhaps a string of many small restaurants, that seemed to blend together under the colorful cacophony of cheesy signs and general bustle of people filling the outdoor seating. Every last rooftop edge was lit up by a cord of Christmas lights, noisy magenta and green, that competed with the stars for attention and won. Jacobi had a headache. Although, it may have been because of the scene in front, and not above him, that caused this distress.
The twinkling lights around him were annoying, but the colonel was loud, wearing an unbuttoned red Hawaiian shirt (they were in Cuba), sunglasses (at night), a black pinstriped fedora (why), khaki shorts, and holding an unlit cigar. All he was missing was a fanny pack. Still, Kepler was the most conspicuous within the city limits of Havana. He blended in perfectly. So did Jacobi, in fact, who mirrored Kepler in looks aside from the fedora and sunglasses, which had been tragically lost in the explosion that killed 19 earlier that day. Jacobi picked up the menu in front of him.
