I only made it to the intermission before I gave up, I actually sighed a breath of relief when it faded to black, thinking it was finally over, but nope, that’s only the half way point! There’s a good story here, but it’s buried under cringy virtue signalling, bad rapping and women wearing lingerie. I didn’t mind that last part, but it really did distract from everything else going on.
Hamilton originally appeared on Adam Selvidge’s Website on July 4, 2020.
