Seeing as we are on a break between trips… I wanted to take a moment to share about the amazingness which is the musical, Hamilton. I had the privilege of seeing this show at The Paramount Theater in Seattle, and I just have to say it was absolutely phenomenal. I was worried that it wouldn’t live up to all the hype, but it did not disappoint.
The music was obviously fantastic, the singers were incredible, and the dancing was superb. We did not leave the theater disappointed. In fact, we left singing all the tunes of Hamilton stuck in our heads. Yes, still stuck today, 4 days later. I have now been entering the Hamilton Lottery daily in the hopes of snagging tickets to go see it again, it was that good.
I do have to say, tickets for Hamilton are crazy expensive, and ridiculously hard to get. The only reason I was able to go was because I purchased season tickets to The Paramount this year, and I am so glad I did. For 4 season ticket seats (to see 7 shows!) I paid a little over $900. Had I purchased 4 seats to just see Hamilton I would have paid at minimum, $800. That’s INSANE.
I’ll just make this my plug for season tickets. BUY THEM. Really. You will not be disappointed. It comes out to about $25 per seat per show. And if you think about the $15 it costs to see a movie at the movie theater… I’d much rather spend the extra $10 and see a live musical production. There is truly nothing better than musical theater. If you have an opportunity, I cannot recommend Hamilton enough. It’s spectacular in every way.
