Hamilton Disney Plus review: To stream or not to stream?
Since the pandemic hit, the life of theatre has ground to a halt. I feel like I have undergone a break-up, without warning, that came out of nowhere and has left me and my emotions all askew. Shaftesbury Avenue, the hub of Theatre Land, has become desolate and bare, the hive of activity having abruptly stopped. Disney then released the fantastic news (and a huge thank you to Lin-Manuel Miranda for facilitating) that 3 July 2020 would be the day that Hamilton finally drops. I could hardly contain my glee.
