Ignite Hamilton

Editor's Notes

  1. Hamilton: it's so hot right now
  2. But why? Why are people so enthusiastic, even obsessed?
  3. Talking about music = dancing about architecture, BUT: it's really catchy, partially because it blends styles.
  4. Big old-fashioned musical
  5. Hip-hop: Biggie Smalls, Eminem, Rakim, etc.
  6. And so much more: R&B, Beyoncè, dancehall, boogie woogie, etc
  7. The British Invasion as personified by King George III
  8. All of that to tell this story: The story of Hamilton. More than just shot in a duel & guy on the bill.
  9. Poor, bastard, orphan; sent to New York to get an education, landed in the Revolution.
  10. Aide to Washington! A drafter of the Constitution, co-author of Federalist papers, first Treasury secretary.
  11. Super-smart, but kind of a jerk about it, so he attracted enemies. Also: HUBRIS.
  12. America's first political sex scandal! Who the heck writes a 70 page book defending themselves from corruption charges by writing about an affair?
  13. Finally, shot in a duel with the Vice President...in the same spot where his son died in a duel. You wouldn't believe it in fiction. A larger-than-life story.
  14. NOTE: if you saw me present this, I said 144,000 words. It’s actually 144wpm, and I got the wrong number stuck in my head. My bad. Music + story are woven together so cleverly. 144K words in 2.5 hours, fastest ever Broadway musical. [cite: http://fivethirtyeight.com/datalab/hamilton-is-the-very-model-of-a-modern-fast-paced-musical/]
  15. The mix of musical references: Mobb Deep & South Pacific quoted in the same song, in ways that fit with the characters and their arcs thru the story.
  16. Even the casting has narrative meaning: guy who plays Lafayette (friend) in Act I plays Jefferson (foe) in Act II. The choice of people of color as Founding Fathers reinforces that this story is for us now, not just them then.
  17. Seriously, this prose! The density and complexity of the writing draws you in to play with it. And if there’s anything the internet loves, it’s playing with words.
  18. Genius.com annotations: finding all the historical, musical, and cultural allusions.
  19. Listen for yourself! Free at library, Spotify, YouTube. Buy at all the usual places.
  20. Screenshot from a YouTube video. YOU CAN’T HANDLE TEH CUTE.
