Okay, so obviously Hamilton is a huge musical every since it was on Disney+. Don't get me wrong, the musical is phenomenal, it's some of the fans that bug me. I used to be a HUGE Hamilton fan since 2017 (I think) and I will admit that I did have a small crush on Lin. But my love faded away when the school year started, or this August.
I love, love, LOVE theatre, so I joined my high schools theatre club and made it into the troupe. To be honest, I was loving it at first, but after we did a 'ice-breaker' game where we got to know each other, I realized why so many people wanted to join the club. Hamilton.
Most of the people in the club liked Hamilton and only Hamilton, which sparked a slight dislike for the majority of the club. I asked some members what their opinions were on Wicked and three out of the four said "What's that?"
Sure, you can like Hamilton, but PLEASE don't drag others down with your little knowledge of theatre. I tend to like musicals more than plays as I think most of the theatre community, so I tried to calm myself down, breathe. (ITH pun).
Also, to all the Hamilton stans who are out there and have a crush on Lin Manuel-Miranda and think that he is our savior, if you haven't heard of aleast three names you're not a true fan of Lin nor musicals.
Nina, Boq, Usnavi, Trekkie, Elle Woods, Winnie Foster.
