Hello and welcome to another post! Today I’ll be doing the Hamilton tag which I found on Amber’s blog. Hamilton is my absolute favourite musical ever it’s just incredible, I’m constantly dreaming of the day I see it live in person on stage but for now, I’ll just have to stick to the bootleg! So, let’s get into the Hamilton Tag.
1. How did you find out about Hamilton?
I don’t really know, it’s kind of everywhere you look so it’s hard not to find out about it.
2. Favourite character?
That’s a hard one! I love Hamilton, obviously! Also, George Washington, Eliza and King George is so much fun!
3. Character you would want to play?
Any of the Schuyler sisters! Probably Angelica because I love Satisfied! I would also love to play George Washington, Hamilton or King George!
4. Favourite song to listen to?
Guns and Ships, What Did I Miss, Satisfied, One Last Time, The Room Where It Happens etc, etc. literally the entire album! The easier question would probably be least favourite song to listen to because it’s a much shorter list.
5. Favourite song to sing along with?
Say No To This… also, see above!

6. The part you always mess up when you’re singing along?
Guns and Ships and Cabinet Battle #1. They’re so fast!
7. Can you rap guns and ships?
No but I’m amazing at LAFAYETTE… LAFAYETTE… LAFAYETTE… LAFAYETTE… LAFAYETTE… (listen to it if you don’t know!)
8. Which cast member would you want to meet?
I assume we’re talking original Broadway cast? Obviously Lin-Manuel Miranda, Alexander Hamilton himself and creator of the show! Also, Daveed Diggs seems so cool and Jonathan Groff was on Glee and in Frozen and he’s besties with Lea Michele so definitely him too!
9. Have you seen the show?
Only the bootleg. It was with the OBC and it was phenomenal. I cried for two and a half hours.
10. Have you read the book?
The book the show is based on? No. I think I would get bored because there’s no singing or dancing in the book…
11. Favourite line in the show?
There are a few good ones! One is “When I meet Thomas Jefferson, I’m ‘a compel him to include women in the sequel! WORK” (The Schuyler Sisters) another is “I will kill your friends and family just to remind you of my love Da da da dat da dat da da da da ya da
Da da dat dat da ya da!” (You’ll Be Back). I also love “Southern motherfuckin’ Democratic-Republicans!” (Washington on Your Side) I don’t really know why, I just like singing/shouting that bit! Every time I listen to the album I hear something new which makes me love it even more!
12. Five words to describe the show?
Phenomenon, Incredible, Mind-blowing, Catchy, Inspiring.
