Good episode? Give it some love!
Already a smash hit, Hamilton: An American Musical is about to explode again as it becomes widely available for the first time on Disney+ today, finding a completely new audience – including our own Matt Helgeson! Our host dives into the Broadway bash for the first time with help from Ben “Hamilton is the Greatest Work of Art of All Time” Hanson and special guest, Broadway performer/producer Alex Boniello (Spring Awakening, Dear Evan Hansen, Hadestown). We dig into the musical’s best tunes as well as what makes the whole package special, and field questions from the MinnMax community about underseen musicals, Kingdom Hearts, and whether or not Hamilton was hot IRL. (He wasn’t. Thanks, Kyle.)
