Finally Saw Hamilton: The Curse of the Cast Recording!About a 1 min. read
I’m in Chicago for work, and a group of us went to see Hamilton last night.
We have two school-ago kids, and there was a long period of time where it seemed that they and everyone they knew was into Hamilton. The show was great! But after listening to the Original Cast Recording enough to have it memorized, it’s super-hard to avoid comparing what you’re seeing to the “music you know”.
The cast was really good, but it took a little while into the show for me to stop thinking “That’s good, but they’re singing it wrong!”
That’s the Curse of the Cast Recording.
