Nope, neither did. One because they were dead, and the other because they killed them.
It also introduces fridge logic : Many of the letters Eliza wrote to Hamilton in real life are lost to history. This show gives us a possible reason why.I love the musical. The parts that aren't historically accurate (Hamilton actually wasn't against slavery, Eliza and Hamilton made up quite a bit earlier in real life, and a few other more minor details) are annoying, but it's still a great musical.
Is there anyone else here who has listened to the recording of it and noticed a difference in how Aaron Burr sounded in the movie version?
As a guy that doesn’t like musicals....
It was funking amazing.
I mean, yes, I get this, but his sounds more different than anyone else's in the cast. Just making an observation.
The first is the John Adams Rap - cut for being irrelevant. No spoilers in it except that Hamilton really didn't like John Adams (who I don't think even appears in the show).
The third is Cabinet Rap Battle #3 on the subject of banning slavery which didn't quite work and contains spoilers.
Not just irrelevant, but... I know Hamilton and Adams didn't get along, but Hamilton also would not have had a nation to be Secretary of the Treasury of were it not for Adams.
It isn't like Hamilton was all that staunch of an abolitionist. While he did write against the practice, he also bought and sold them for his in-laws, so...
Three numbers cut from the show for length that are still great. The first is the John Adams Rap - cut for being irrelevant. No spoilers in it except that Hamilton really didn't like John Adams (who I don't think even appears in the show).
