Hamilton Seattle Tickets
Despite President Donald Trump’s call to boycott “Hamilton”, the musical continued to sell out. So much so that a second national tour has been announced that will kick off from Seattle in February 2018. Hamilton Seattle tickets are now available and in great demand. Featuring a multicultural cast, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “Hamilton” won multiple awards and is lauded for its bold efforts – both on and off stage.
Hamilton and its Controversies
It was New York’s Richard Rodgers Theatre where it happened, soon after Donald Trump became the president. As Vice President Mike Pence stood among the applauding crowd, actor Brandon Victor Dixon said from the stage, “We, sir – we – are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights.” His hope that the new administration would protect “all” Americans stirred a controversy at the White House, prompting President-elect to ask the cast of Hamilton to apologize. What followed next was a string of freedom of speech protests and Twitter war. But it was mostly Hamilton’s gain as more and more people turned up in theaters to watch the nation’s founding story.
Hamilton entered another controversy and this time it was their turn to face the wrath. The musical posted a casting call that stated “nonwhite men and women” required for roles. It didn’t sit well with people and the musical announced it would change it to people from all backgrounds to try out. But later the creators of the hit musical clarified yet reinforced that the principal roles were written for non-white characters and it was essential that they were performed by non-white actors.
It’s these things that highlight the importance of theater and shows why it remains relevant in today’s world of IMAX and 3D technology. “Hamilton” arrived at a perfect time and it continues to show the true essence of America. Catch the show in its second run – buy Hamilton Seattle tickets now.
