I Had an Amazing Time at "Hamilton"

Last weekend, I floated through the streets of Manhattan like I was a member of the Volturi. 

And you know what that means.

It means that I just had a euphoric experience at the theater. After a sold out run at the Public, watching segments such as the one above, and much hoopla, I finally got a chance to see Lin-Manuel Miranda's Hamilton 

As I floated through the streets, I wished the OBC was available so that I could listen and catch the lyrics I missed. And wouldn't you know it, a couple of days later, the entire album was made available for streaming on NPR Music First Listen.  

So, I listened to the show again, and I was absolutely correct...

Lin-Manuel Miranda is a genius.
