the most memorable moments in Hamilton as told by someone who finally saw it live
I saw the show on August 1st 2017. These moments aren't exactly in order of appearance in the show, but just as they occurred to me.
- •The miming of his cousin's suicide at the line "the cousin committed suicide"The actor stood up on a chair and wrapped his hands in a motion around his head to imitate hanging. It was incredibly powerful without being gratuitous.
- •The absolute deafening applause at Hamilton's first entrance
- •Watching Eliza emerge from the back of the stage with the lantern before singing Burn
- •The rewinding in SatisfiedThis was one of the nuances I was excited to see live. I was always curious about how this was done while listening to the soundtrack, but it was perfect
- •Hamilton trying to stop Seabury from speaking during Farmer RefutedAbsolutely hysterical, he kept trying to block him from the pedestal- the audience died at "don't modulate the key then not debate with me"
- •King George dancing manically and cackling at the line "never gonna be president now"Everything with King George was perfect to be honest
- •The audience's reaction to "immigrants: we get the job done". There was practically a full minute of cheering and clappingThis might've been the most incredible live theatre audience reaction I've ever witnessed
