The Revolution’s Happening in New York!

B.A.: [May 21, 2020] Please queue this up for the morning of July 4. Hopefully by then the Great Quarantine of 2020 will largely be over and “Music to Get Us Started During the Lockdown” will have gone the way of ChadWatch and While We’re Waiting for the Download, and this will just be something fun to listen to a Saturday morning.

I find this version infinitely more appealing than the one in Hamilton, because there’s no sense of “Look how cool we are, and I bet you’re glad you paid $1200 for your ticket.”

I also like the idea of Peggy, an adult (historically accurate) who seems to act like a child (probably not historically accurate), being played by an actual child.

  1. [July 4, 2020] guess I was wrong about the “Quarantine will be a thing of the past” thing. Damn.

    Should I have mentioned this is their version of a scene from the musical Hamilton?

    I saw the full show last night on Disney+ (had only seen clips before). I thought it was okay, worth the $6.99 we paid, but not the life-altering experience you’d expect based on the hype. And I stand by my opinion that these sisters did the song better.
