Hamilton: An American Musical has been at the top of my must-see list since I first listened to the soundtrack a couple years ago (and the hundreds of times after). And on Wednesday, I finally got to see it live as the tour has come here to Tempe and I was fortunate enough to snag season tickets for it. One of the first non-gaming pieces I ever wrote on this site was a review of the Hamilton Mix-Tape. I hardly ever read books but I sat down and read the book detailing the making of the musical from cover to cover. And the show itself did not disappoint. I cried multiple times throughout. Sometimes this was caused by the impactful emotions of the scene. But more often than not, it was pure elation at the realization that I was getting to see this expertly crafted, once-in-a-generation piece of art first-hand. Powerful stuff.
