I sat at my computer looking at the blank document for a long time. I wondered what I could possibly say about this modern musical theater masterpiece.  Is there an angle or breakdown of Hamilton that hasn’t already been covered?  The more I thought about it, the more white and blank the document became.  The answer is most likely, no, there isn’t much to say about Hamilton that hasn’t been said over the last six or seven years. But what I can and will comment on is my experience with Hamilton, and my review of the cast I saw in the And Peggy Tour here in Salt Lake City at the Eccles Theater.  Wish me luck!

I’m sorry.  I really am.  But I have to do it.  You know I have to.  It’s the most obvious tee up ever. I kinda feel like you’d be disappointed if I didn’t do it. So here it goes (clears throat).  It felt so good to be inside Eccles Theater watching a Broadway musical “For the first time in forever”!  Ok, I did it, it had to be done, it’s over with.  Let’s move on.  In all seriousness, it felt amazing to be at a Broadway show.  To hear the orchestra warming up in the pit, the ushers guiding people to their seats and handing out programs, the bells indicating that the show was about to begin, all of those once so familiar ellements of live theater felt like a homecoming.  Broadway is back in Utah, and the excitement was felt inside the gorgeous Delta Performance Hall.

Every once in a while we’ll get a musical that has been written in the present tense, with modern themes and modern lessons.  Sure you’ll have a show like Hamilton which has many modern elements and musical stylings, but the story takes place over 200 years ago. I’m talking about shows like Hair, which in which the story took place in the ’70s and debuted on Broadway in the ’70s.  Another show like this that comes to mind is Rent from the ‘90s. The show takes place in the ‘90s, it’s themes are from current events of the day and the show debuted on Broadway in the ‘90s. You get the idea. Now we have Dear Evan Hansen. A story for our time.
