I’m not sure what you need me to say about a filmed stage production of Hamilton landing on Disney+ more than a year ahead of its originally scheduled release date, especially given our collective pressing need for joy and positivity and uplift at this moment where everything is terrible. If you have a subscription, you’ll probably watch it*. If you don’t, you’ll probably nab a free trial** and watch it.
But hopefully you’ll read my review first, which is posted at The Playlist.
*Unless you’re affluent and shelled out a month’s rent for the average person and watched it on Broadway, and even then, you might still watch it.
**Assuming Disney does free trials, which is a punchline unto itself. “Free.” “Disney.” Ha.
