Today is the day I will be in that room. .
After three years of waiting, I will be able to see Hamilton live for real.
It feels surreal to finally be at this point. I listened to the cast album on repeat for a year and a half. It got me through some of the worst experiences of my life in 2016. I spent 225+ hours creating my Angelica Schuyler costume that spring- the longest I’ve ever spent on a single build. .
This show means the world to me. I listened to Hamilton so much because I felt seen. I identified with Angelica and Hamilton, yes, but the show offered something more: triumphant representation. It’s an acknowledgement that the face of our country is browner today than it was when it was founded and that is it that very diversify that makes us strong.
I’ve been a musical theatre fan my whole life but with Hamilton, for the first time, the cast was filled with people who looked like me. .
I’m a writer for a living and even then it’s hard to describe how much this musical has impacted me. I imagine tonight is going to send me reeling in the best of ways. I can’t wait to see what happens. .
