I’m curious how Hamilton’s small screen “real-time capture” version compares to the live performance I saw in San Francisco last January. Its cast and price are much higher than Disney Plus’ monthly subscription fees.
“One thing we often encounter on Broadway is how daunting Broadway is for many people,” Dave Diggs, the actor who played Marquis Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson, was in the zoom with Hamilton The press conference said on June 16, “People just can’t afford tickets. Even if they can, there are only so many seats.”
Producer and director Thomas Kail (Thomas Kail) is also the director of the film Hamilton. Disney originally planned to release the musicals 15 months later than the current release date. However, due to, Is the right time. The director said: “Not only is there no Hamilton team, but there is no live performance.” “No concert. No Broadway. No regional theater.”
Miranda wore a hat because he said “the hair in the quarantine area is very poor” and he insisted on democratizing Hamilton. Even after performing on Broadway for five years and producing multiple shows at the same time, the Grammy, Emmy, Pulitzer and Tony Award winners still believe that between July 3 and July 5 The number of people who saw Hamilton on Disney Plus will exceed the total already seen.
You won’t have to worry about arriving at the theater on time, parking will not be a problem, and you may be more comfortable than sitting in a theater seat with limited leg space. But how much active energy can this recorded performance actually capture?
Kyle said: “For me, all I have to do is try to create a file that feels like being in that room.” “It’s not about performing. This is its own experience, I think we try to embrace the theater Love.”
Kyle explained that for the final version of the film, the team shot two live performances. During the screening, the projector never stopped, and the audience put the camera in front of the audience. Kail also has no audience in the theater for some time. The film crew can jump on the stage to shoot and use stable cams and cameras on cranes and trolleys.
Miranda said: “This is better than the best seat in Hamilton’s house.” “Tommy broke the reception very deliberately.”
The film was shot ten months after singing the song recorded for the Broadway soundtrack and after numerous performances on Broadway. Miranda joked that Hamilton is the best rehearsal movie ever, “may not include certain scenes of David Finch.”
Hamilton resonates today
But the crew of Hamilton realized that this was not just some games. They were anxious to comment on the anti-racist protests and demands for social justice that occurred in the world after the black race George Floyd was detained by the police in Minneapolis.
“I am very happy to see [the show] “It inspired the movement,” said Onaodowan, who played Hercules Mulligan and James Madison, “I am excited for the children who are frustrated and angry there. They can watch and realize that they can use their power by writing and challenging those who tell you that you don’t like Hamilton. ”
Soo, who plays Eliza Hamilton, emphasizes the importance of having such a diverse cast, especially for young audiences. She talked about people of color, young Asian women and young women of other backgrounds, and thanked her for joining a stage group that looked like them. She said: “Remember the feeling of self when you are that person, and look forward to these people forming the first artistic experience with you, it will always feel good.”
Regarding Hamilton’s future, Ramos has an idea for the next step: appropriate film music adaptation. Actors John Laurens and Philip Hamilton said as actors: “We are performing in the highlands.” “Let me know, Lin, when we are going to be Hamilton.”
