After reading the homie Frannie Kelley’s glowing review of the original cast soundtrack for Hamilton, the much-hyped hip-hop-meets-American-history musical by the newly minted genius Lin-Manuel Miranda, I decided to give it a listen.
So over the last few days, I have been banging this in the crib loudly — like, really, really loudly — and I’m wondering: is this how you musical theater/musical nerds feel all the time? I mean, this song, “Wait For It,” had me in my crib yell-singing and ALL IN MY FEELINGS like I was about to burst or some shit. And I couldn’t tell you why. My secret lover’s husband is not off fighting the British in Georgia, my grandfather was not a fire-and-brimstone preacher. (My mother is a genius, tho…)
I don’t know. It just seems so exhausting, you guys.
