    I idly wonder if this is, in any part, a response to right-wing politics being dominated by idolatry of celebrity. A, "Well fuck, let's never fall into THAT trap" defense mechanism

    (I also don't think it's INHERENTLY bad to be suspicious of any celebrity who gets active in political spaces, but jumping from skepticism to "eeeeeeeevil" is lazy)
    nah, there's still plenty of celebrity idolatry it just mostly applies to youtubers, podcasters, and for some reason glenn greenwald.

    I think Hamilton is fine if you don't treat it any more seriously than, say, 1776 or Evita or Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson. They're works of historical fiction, some more accurate than others, but still ultimately fiction.

    That said, I have seen a lot of people take Hamilton as gospel truth in a way that they might not the others, but I don't think I can really blame LMM for that.

    Even if you do treat Hamilton as gospel the musical isn't exactly depicting ol' Ham as a hero without flaws.

    Was there ever a way to see Hamilton without booking a trip to Broadway and spend how-the-fuck-much on the secondary market? Because for a hot minute while internet thinkpieces proclaimed it as this event civic-minded Americans were practically duty bound to see, I was always annoyed that this Important Work was only in reach of people with money.

    I think part of the reason certain people were looking for a reason to hate Miranda is because he made an extremely successful hip hop musical with an all minority cast about some of the whitest history imaginable, and that sticks in some people’s craw like he’s some kind of race traitor or whatever the hell

    At least that’s a vibe I’ve gotten in the past

    There is a great Sarah Z video about this. That seems to be a take that many in theater tend to share and to be honest I think I understand even though I think its wrong. There isn't really an easy answer making it more available to people that isn't essentially putting out a subpar version of your art. More companies traveling around performing Hamilton means less direct control on the quality and these people tend to believe there is something special about a live performance that gets taken away if you just watch a filmed version of it so that isn't a good substitute for it either.

    But ultimately that line of logic does great a paywall and keeps people away from important work so maybe just release a taped version of the musical, Lin.

    That's standard practice for Broadway musicals. It feels like a weird thing to hold against him.

    I think it’s because he got out and said “I think everyone should be able to experience this” and then that sentiment rings a bit hollow when you can’t fully follow through on it

    But also I don’t care about broadway musicals so this is the first time that practice ever affected me, perhaps if I had cared about them in the past I’d feel differently

    Yeah like, this is something I've been around for most of my life. I've never been a Broadway/musical person myself, but I've spent a lot of time around them. Being into Broadway means piecing things together from bootlegs and scripts and cast recordings - that's a whole part of the fandom, I would argue.

    If you want more accessible theatre, then go out and find what your local theatre scene is doing. Not all of it is going to be Hamilton, but some of it you might like better, and by supporting a local arts scene you allow that scene to thrive and grow.

    Filming theatre doesn't make theatre more accessible, it makes people less likely to go to the theatre.

    I saw Hamilton last year and loved it, but I spent three years with just the cast recording and loved that at least as much. It was incredibly emotionally resonant for me (I cried at music! That doesn’t happen much!) and as excited as I was to finally see a production, at no point did I feel like the cast recording was a lesser version or like I was missing out. I honestly thought it would be many more years before I’d be able to see the show and I was fine with that

    I dunno, that’s my two cents on it. Your mileage may vary

    I dunno, I don't have any actual data behind it, so maybe I'm off base.

    But when I was doing shows, I would consistently have people ask me to film it for them. Relatives and stuff like that, you know, but still, the idea was always there that they cared about what I was doing but not enough to spend ten bucks watching it. So I have a pretty negative reaction to that sort of thing.

    Plus filmed theatre almost universally looks bad, even the stuff that the Met does is not great, and I don't think that sort of stuff being available is going to help its image really.

    I think I see the point though.

    Like filming live theater could end up like... Squishing? The like ownership of the production down to who owns the distribution rights of the final product? Which might remove incentives for local theater companies or troupes to perform more shows or even form in the long run if everyone can just rent the "definitive" version of a play on Google or what have you with the proceeds only going to a much smaller pool of people than having a widespread culture of performance art?

    Like ideally most large enough cities should have their own healthy live theater scene in a perfect world I think.
