Hey everyone!

I thought people on this group might be interested in a project I've been working on for the last 6 months or so with a group of artists in NYC. It's 10 classic Musical Theatre showtunes reimagined for contemporary radio. The project is called "Give My Regards to Broadway: Classic Showtunes Reimagined"

However track #2 on the project is "Getting Married Today" from Company as a Hip-Hop track, performed by Mr. Hercules Mulligan/James Madison himself, Okieriete Onaodowan! It also features Travis Kent (from Broadway's "Disaster") singing the hook. The track was arranged by Scott Wasserman who built the beats for Hamilton. For a while his Playbill designation was "Beatmaster" which I think is just about the coolest Broadway credit imaginable.

Anyways, I hope you all like the track, it can be found here: https://youtu.be/zLIcTvFEJdE?list=PLu_Sa1NZEPY4fbQu_Wf8SL_neakBLJP1r 

The rest of the tracks can be found at www.neddonovan.com/GMRTB 

Thanks for checking us out, and hope you like it!

Other side of 10 will feature array of suffragists.

Harriet Tubman will replace motherfucking democrat republican Andrew Jackson.

Hello! I was lucky enough to be able to see the show last week and posted a very long entry about it here at my journal. I tried to split it into non-spoilery overview and spoilery song-by-song review, in case you are wanting to avoid staging comments.

I also have a request? If you've seen the show and posted somewhere about it (whether here, tumblr, or wherever), can you link me? I'd love to read it! I'm eating up all the reports now that my self-imposed no spoiler reading is over.

This article, published today in Slate, contains a number of links to other articles about Hamilton, in case no one's seen it yet.

Specifically, it seems to think Hamilton fans will somehoe be upset by criticism of the show. I am resisting the urge to send a copy of Textual Poachers with relevant bits highlighted to its author.

I just ran across this interview that I hadn't seen before (from August, 2015):
