You might have noticed that there’s a new Broadway musical that everyone* is losing their minds over: Hamilton, by and starring Lin-Manuel Miranda. It’s a thoroughly modern musical, with racebent casting of some very familiar Revolutionary figures, and a breakneck pace that slips from rap battles to Beyonce-style girl group harmonies.
Lisa, who is as obsessed as it’s possible to be without forking over her savings for a ticket, catches Jules up on the show and the charmed life of Lin-Manuel Miranda. And, of course, no Bossy Britches discussion about the Revolutionary period is complete without some good hard burns on Thomas Jefferson.
