I'm completely obsessed with Hamilton/Jesus Christ Super Star/Disney animated 90's musicals.

They make me so happy. The singing and dancing is great. I know this isn't PC but I'm not a gay (NTTAWWT), I just really like them. They are so fun.

Raise a glass to freedom...raise a glass to the 4 of us, tomorrow there'll be more of us.

Another great one with awesome tunes.

My parents took me to a semi local playhouse version of this one in New Hope PA:




The full frontal naked scene was interesting to a middle school aged Koop sitting in the audience with his mom and dad.

I'm watching Hamilton again because I'm like a 4 y/o child who can't get enough.

This time I noticed that Miranda has what looks like a clumpy chunk of hair on his hairline. I thought it was some hairspray chunk or something. Then I noticed that all the guys and women who have longer hair have the same thing. That got me thinking it might be a fancy lapel mic on their heads. Turns out that's exactly what it is and all of the actors with hair wear them. Interesting. Apparently it's a Broadway thing. I've never seen them worn like that before.

Here both Miranda and Soo are wearing them.

Yes. Having watched it 3 times myself, I noticed that.

I saw a local production of Jersey Boys about a year earlier, seated in the third row. And they had the same thing.

I always look for those things. I spend half of my time at those shows checking out the sets and production stuff. It’s fascinating figuring out how they make shows happen.

I love when a TV show or movie F's up and shows a boom mic in a shot.

Kubrick...The best director in the history of the art...fucked it up in The Shining where he allowed the helicopter shadow to show in a shot. I am baffled as to why he let that slide. Did he just miss it? I find that hard to believe.

I'm kinda obsessed with Sasha Hutchings, one of the backup dancers in Hamilton. All the backups dress in the same off white outfits but she wears it by far the best and stands out.
