I'm probably the last person to see Hamilton. It was fantastic!

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. But a skunkweed will always be a skunkweed and instantly recognizable.

We have not either.

We used to have season tickets to a pretty modern theater. It was fun. We've also been to Ashland,OR for Shakespeare. It was great.

It's been a fun year so far, GO Twins.

I used to go to a lot of theatre when I lived in the Twin Cities, but I don’t get to as much as I’d like in Chicago, and there is a lot of good theatre here, not just Broadway type productions like Hamilton, but I like those, too.

Have not seen it. I rarely get to see live theater (other than local theater).

It was fantastic. I want to see it again. One of my sons is jealous that my wife and I saw it, but we haven’t shelled out the $ for him to see it...yet.

Last week went to see “Come From Away”, which was excellent. Story of 9/11 small town in Newfoundland that wound up getting dozens of planes diverted there and then thousands of people stranded there for days.

For those who are in the Twin Cities, Come from Away is coming (no pun intended) to the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis next summer. Hamilton is also coming back to the Orpheum Theatre sometime during the 2020/2021 Broadway season (not sure exactly when yet).

I missed 'Come From Away' when it was here, but have been told by many it was very good.

I may have to plan a family trip around Hamilton.
